TOWN HALL LANES. Beer and bowling. Beyond pickles and cream cheese, is there really a better match? Pete Rifakes of Town Hall Brewery obviously thought not, and he couldn’t pass up the chance to prove it when the Skylane popped up for sale. Gutting the old bowling alley, Rifakes brought in his collection of vintage beer signs, an imported bar that came with a player piano, a new menu of family-friendly flatbreads and sausages, and, of course, his lineup of national award-winning beers nestled among the 24 taps—including Super Strike lager, an exclusive to the alley and the only beer available by the pitcher. That’s better than killing a 7-10 split. 5019 34th Ave. S., Mpls., 612-767-3354, townhallbrewery.com
