Drink of the week: Town Hall Brewery's LSD


LSD $4.75 ($3.75 at happy hour)

Town Hall Brewery 1430 Washington Ave. S., Mpls. 612.339.8696 website

Another awesome Town Hall Brewery creation, this time thanks to Brewer Josh-- LSD made from L-lavender, S-sunflower honey (locally produced) and D-dates. This beer starts with aromatic floral scents, then a mouthful of sweet honey, and the finish of date gives it earthy fall spice. Sounds all crazy, but tastes so right.

If you are not on the Town Hall Brewery e-mail list, I would recommend signing up since many of their cool creations are only available for a limited time. The heads-up is helpful.

Another feature at Town Hall is growlers--beer-to-go in a half-gallon brown moonshiney jug. Man, it feels so good to go home with your jug filled with frothy fresh brewed ale. The first time you get a growler you leave a deposit on the jug, then bring it back for less expensive refills. Selection of available growler beer varies--the blackboard in front of the pub denotes the week's selections. I filled mine with LSD, the smoked porter being my second choice.

Rumor has it that Town Hall Brewery has a St. Paul location in the works. Anyone out there have info on this? Please post in comments.
