CBH Beer Descriptions

This is not our tap list. Check the beer menu for what is currently on tap.


CBH Copper Hill Kolsch (on tap)

2005 Great American Beer Festival Gold Medal Winner! 2005 & 2006 Great International Beer Festival Gold Medal Winner! German Style Light Ale. Smooth, easy drinking with subtle noble hop character.

CBH Abijah Rowe IPA (on tap)

2005 Great International Beer Festival Gold Medal Winner! A Traditional English India Pale Ale. Brewed with CT malt & hopped with a blend of English & American hops. High in strength, bitterness & aroma.

CBH IPA Too Amercan IPA (on tap)

Something old and something new for you.  This beer starts with the same old grain bill as CBH Abijah Rowe IPA but we hop with Amarillo, Bravo, Cascade, Centennial, Citra, Simcoe and Summit to get a little bitterness and lot of flavor. The something new is kveik yeast for a little more juice and crispness.  You have to try this one which comes in at 5.2% abv and 67 IBU. This beer makes our taste buds happy hoppy and we hope it makes yours happy hoppy too!

CBH Bravo Citra! NESIPA (on tap)

This is truly an experimental beer.  The idea was to create a New England style beer with lots of orange and citrus notes,  really hazy and orangish in color but make it sessionable in alcohol content.  So let us know if we hit our target?  This experiment is a very drinkable 4.6 abv, smells quite juicy but it is a little darker than we targeted.  The IBU calculate out to 22.4 but it is really hard to determine by calculation since there are so many factors that affect the bitterness.  Our whirlpool temp climbed 10°F more than desired, but for only about 10 minutes.  Overall this beer makes us happy and we hope it makes you happy too!

CBH Three Steve Stout (on tap)

2009 Great American Beer Festival Silver Medal Winner! A delicious Irish stout.

CBH Rock Bock (on tap)

A rich, malty German lager featuring copious quantities of Munich malt. We super heated granite blocks and dipped them in the boil to get some nice caramel notes in the brew then we threw them in the fermenter to add some more mineral flavors.

CBH Fruit Salad Sour (on tap)

Our latest sour beer is a little more modern than the berlinerweisse. It is higher in alcohol, with more body and more tartness. Pours a lovely pink head over a deep purple beer. Tart and effervescent with huge fruit flavor and a subtle citrus kiss over a delicate malt backbone. Fermented on copious amounts of blackberry and tart cherry and dry hopped with Citra.

Light and easy drinking, but with a complex flavor showcasing the best grains and hops to come out of the US! 4.9% ABV

CBH Reinheitsgebot Oktoberfest (not on tap)

Our Oktoberfest beer is a classic Märzen lager
brewed in the most traditional way we could manage.
A full decoction mash and the best German munich,
vienna and pilsner malt combine with generous helpings
of tettenanger, hallertau mittlefrüh and mandarina bavaria.
Rich, but not overly so, this beer has a delicious
breadiness with subdued pilsner sweetness that will make
you think you’re in the fatherland for Oktoberfest and a finish
that encourages another drink! Lagered for over six weeks,
this beer is of brilliant clarity, unfiltered and 100% compliant
with the German Purity law from which it takes its name.

we’ll figure it out! 5.7% ABV
