specialty Beer for the adventurer


Chico's First Specialty Beer Bar

[20 taps] [10 wines] [be adventurous]


The Handle Bar opened in 2012, and has quickly become a local favorite for good beer, good food, and great company. 20 taps of the finest specialty and craft beers, an excellent assortment of wines by the glass and a modest, yet tasty, German-inspired pub menu.

We feature a beautiful patio where you can park your bike and enjoy the afternoon with friends. You're welcome to bring your dog (provided it plays well with others and is on a leash).

We also offer three high-definition televisions to enjoy a game, ample parking and a friendly, knowledgeable staff, whom have all been trained in Cicerone Beer Serving.
