C. B. & Potts/Bighorn Brewing Company Restaurant Review

: If there were a category for suburban brewpub, the C.B. & Potts chains would exemplify it nicely. As expansive as the sprawling areas they call home, these all-encompassing places offer a wealth of mainstream attractions for their Main St. clientele. If they’re a shade schizophrenic --- equal parts dining room, brewpub and sports bar --- visitors don't seem to mind. They keep coming back for the menu of steaks, chicken and seafood, paired with better-than-average renditions of the usual brewhouse edibles. Enjoy them in the quieter dining area or soak up the sports buzz in the bar section, which gets a shade noisy at times. The beer list reflects the setting --- professional middle-of-the-road brews a bit lean on style and assertiveness. Seasonal brews and cask-conditioned offerings are often a cut above their year-round peers. Beer nut note: the brews at this location are steps above those at the south Denver locale. Brewmaster Bill Eye’s products are rich with nuance and charm. We suggest the India Pale Ale, a lushly hopped wonder.
