    By far the best brew pub in greater Boston. Be sure to try the house beers, but their bread and butter are brews from the barrel cellar. Anything wild and funky = amazing.

    CBC is a lesson in heartbreak. Whenever you fall in love with a beer, it goes away. But happily, there's always a new one to take its place and fall in love again.
