You may have heard the rumors and while it seems nothing is carved in stone just yet, the Pioneer Press reports on the progress Town Hall is making toward a location in St. Paul.
President Obama has his town halls. Now, St. Paul may get a Town Hall, too, and ours comes with lots of great beer.
It has been a long process, but Peter Rifakes says he’s thisclose to opening a Town Hall Brewery in Minnesota’s capital city. He won’t give the exact location, but says he’s negotiating for a space in downtown St. Paul and that it’s not in Lowertown. Rifakes, who has wanted to open in St. Paul for some time, once considered the Lowertown space now occupied by Barrio.
Just like his Town Hall Brewery on Washington Avenue near the University of Minne-sota, the St. Paul location would feature a large selection of house-made beers and a menu of burgers, fish and chips, pasta and steak.
Rifakes says it will be a couple of weeks before details are final. “Nothing,” he says, “is 100 percent certain in this world.”
