Hey Ben,To create the Month in Review, we compile reporting done by our staff and those of other local news organizations. The information about the planned Town Hall-owned Crooked Pint was reported by the Downtown Journal in February:

I haven't heard anything from Town Hall indicating that the Journal report was incorrect, but if it is, I'd encourage those directly involved to get in touch so we can set the record straight.


Not sure why City Pages keeps reporting the former 501 spot as a new Town Hall Brewery outpost but it's simply untrue.  I've talked the Pete, the owner of Town Hall, when I first saw mention of it thinking theres no way it's true.  He confirmed that it was the first he'd heard of it and there is zero truth to it.  Why would they open another spot just 6 blocks from their current brewery?  In addition, it would be illegal for them to do so under current Minnesota law unless they chose to serve only other companies beer and not their own (and what would be the point in keeping the name if that were the case).  Might want to fact check before posting this type of stuff.
