Town Hall Tap - 48th/Chicago Mpls
Any word on this place?
I was there last night, too. Must have been old home week for people who've haven't actually met yet!
Nice corned beef sandwich with some the thick cut that I prefer and some cole slaw that was verrry heartily infused with horseradish. The fries are a throwaway.
The beer list had 4 regular brews from THB (Dortmunder, Masala Mama IPA, Park Ave, and the Oatmeal Stout I think.) They had a few more more seasonal brews from THB such as the Festivus and an ESB. There were definitely guest brews and I saw several ciders on the list.
From the CityPages writeup of the original announcement:
Beer will include more than 24 taps, seven of the brewery's own creation--some exclusively--and also many guest beers from local breweries. Due to local laws, Town Hall will not be able to sell growlers at the new location, but the owners hope to someday grow large enough to sell from a second location--which would mean brewing 3,500 barrels a year (they now produce roughly 1200 to 1600). The new pub will be strictly beer and wine, and they are working on a small, well-crafted wine list.
