We stopped in one night for a nightcap and had a pleasant enough time. Canal Park is big on the light wood and open pipe kind of look but is attractively designed and I can see how it would be a fun place to hang out. They have a big outdoor seating area that definitely looks like something to check out during the daytime. You can also see the big brewing tanks through the large glass windows behind the bar, which is always fun!
The brewery offered a good variety of beers, both lights and darks with all kinds of options in terms of alcohol content. The couple we sampled were very good. I tried the Kolsch, which was super crisp and had a lot of flavor for a Kolsch. My husband had the Trippel, which packed quite a punch. Even though the board clearly states it's like a 9% beer, I think we were both surprised at how quickly he felt it. He also tried the porter, which was a fine porter, but not as thick or as flavorful as some other porters we have tried.
I did wish the kitchen had been open later in the night -- if you're serving big ABV beers, it would be nice to be able to order some food to go with them. But we had a good time, found the place to be clean, relaxed and fun and also really liked our waitress, who went out of her way to take care of us. Though it's not my favorite beer on the North Shore, I also totally enjoyed our visit and would definitely come back if the opportunity presented itself.
In town for Grandma's Marathon and stopped by CPB as our last stop in Canal Park. Â Our server Emily, was very friendly and knowledgable about the beer on tap. Â The full beer flight was worth it, and most beers were very good. Â Enjoyed the atmosphere, live folk music, and outdoor fire pit. Â Highley reco a stop by CPB!Review Source:
