Mt favorite thing about the CBH, besides the great atmosphere and even better beer selection, is the fact that you get a ticket with every beer that you order. That ticket is redemable for one personal size pizza of your choice! Walk back to the...More

Great spot downtown for gatherings and parties. Perfect for any afterwork get-together for your group. Always fun and great beer. Tucked away a bit south of State Street.
