Anniversary Week is here at Minneapolis Town Hall Brewery. This year Pete and the crew celebrate 15 years of great beer, great food, and great people down on Seven Corners. To kick off Anniversary Week, Town Hall tapped a full batch of Mango Mama. While Mango Mama makes an appearance from time to time throughout the year, it’s normally made a single keg at a time rather than an entire batch of this tasty brew.
To make Mango Mama, Town Hall starts with their most popular brew, the Masala Mama IPA, and adds fresh mangos. Wonderful fresh mango aroma mixes with the citrus notes in the IPA and the flavor gets the same treatment. While at times the addition of the large quantity of mangos used in the full batch of this brew has caused pH issues, it seems Mike got everything under control with this latest batch and it’s awesome. In addition to being on tap, some lucky folks stopped in on Sunday the 14th to purchase a ticket for a growler of Mango Mama released on Monday. The tickets went quick with a number of people lined up before the brewpub opened at 11am on Sunday. I was lucky enough to get the last ticket that day around 7pm.
While it isn’t the type of big brew that will keep you warm with the current weather turning cold and winter coming soon, it is a great one to enjoy with your eyes closed imagining that you’re somewhere more tropical. While the batch size may be much increased from normal, it doesn’t mean this brew will last. Get into Town Hall Brewery to have a glass or two and help celebrate 15 wonderful years of greatness.
