I know I'm a little biased, but CBC was the first brewpub I ever went to. (Quickly followed by John Harvard in Harvard Square)

I recently revisited a few times during the period of the 2004 BA Belgian Beer Festival.

A fairly large place full of blond wood and tiles. Located in the middle of what passes for a strip mall in Cambridge right around the corner from MIT.

Sitting at the long bar around from the brewery, it easy to get a feel for the place and get a pint from a friendly bartender (or Will the Brewer). Food is good pub grub and overall the joint is easy to get into the groove of.

Beers are always interesting with both the "standards" necessary to introduce folks and the newer interesting experiments to keep the regulars and geeks going. (767 characters)

Really cool place with a nice outdoor patio and a really laid back vibe where everyone was welcomed and taken care of by the attentive staff. They had a nice selection of beers, the waiter offered solid recommendations and the food came out quick and hot. Beers were good, my burger was very good and there was no rush to leave or pressure. It was a perfect hangover experience and our waiter was one of the best I've ever had, at any restaurant. Quality place close to Lord Hobo, go to both if you're up in Cambridge, MA, you won't be disappointed. (549 characters)
