Running a brewpub is no easy task, if you don't brew great beer than you're just a restaurant and when you don't have great food than you're just a glorified taproom, but when you have both in check than you have a recipe for success!  Town Hall Brewery has gained a stellar reputation since opening their doors in 1997 and they are still brewing some incredible beer.  This week we talk with brewmaster Mike Hoops to discover just what it takes to make award winning beer in a brewpub setting!
