Farewell to a Town Hall Brewery Fixture

Posted by: Ryan Tuenge under Beer, Food, beer, wine events Updated: November 24, 2011 - 12:13 AM

If you have spent any time enjoying an adult beverage at the Town Hall Brewery in the last 12 years, the chances are good that Andy Benkovic was the one topping off your vessel.  It takes a special person to tend bar and Andy certainly possesses all the necessary abilities as evidenced by his friendly demeanor and excellent knowledge of beer he brings to work week in and week out. For those who don’t know, he will be taking his talents out west to sunny California to be with his daughter. Andy will be missed by the many regulars who come through the doors at Town Hall.


The Town Hall Brewery is throwing a send off party to celebrate Andy on Sunday, November 27th at 5 PM with a Rib dinner special that is sure to be a hit. Make your way down to Seven Corners on Sunday to give Andy your well wishes and cap off the holiday weekend with some fun.
