There's a magical quality to the joyous noise within the busy, cavernous Surly Beer Hall: It's easy to hear the conversation at your own table, but all the surrounding voices recede into a pleasant white-noise din. It means that one couple can be chatting through a romantic date, happily oblivious to the family with giggling preschoolers sitting a row or two over. Add in all the bustle of folks waiting at the bar, lining up for tours, and hanging out by the windows overlooking the large outdoor space, and your kids aren't gonna bother anybody. There's even plenty of room for wandering the aisles, which will be appreciated by the adult stuck with infant-calming duties. The well-underage are clearly welcome here: There's a waiting area helpfully stocked with books, and once your kids are seated a server will bestow upon them a cute retro lunchbox filled with crayons and building toys. Children's menu items are generously portioned, but the younger set might be just as eager to sample from shared plates: Cornbread, gnocchi, and giant pretzels are right up their alley. And of course there's the full complement of excellent Surly beers in various flavors, pour sizes, and alcohol content, which parents should enjoy guilt-free: You earned 'em.
