In a strip mall, but the inside is beautiful, and some decent patio seating as well. Service was great, fast, friendly, and incredibly knowledgeable. Selection was outstanding, lots of options on draught and in bottles. As other people say, if you want to avoid coleege kids downtown, this is the best option in Chico.

Chico’s beer bar for beer nerds. Been to the Brewery and looking for more beer? Headed downtown and are now done with college kids FOREVER? Come back to the south side and enjoy the Handle Bar! It’s the beer bar Chico needed for a long time. A good mix of neighborhood regulars, travelers looking to get out of their hotel rooms and beer nerds appreciating the selection. Service is usually excellent, price to pour ratio is good, and a food menu that is happily different (german inspired) from the boring pub fare that has taken over.

Nice little place, although it is in a strip mall. Very friendly and well-trained staff. Limited food menu, but who cares? You come here for the beer. This is the first beer bar of its kind in Chico, and it is not full of drunk college students like all of the bars downtown. Nice selection of beers on tap, including Pliny the Elder. I will be visiting this place more often, now that I have tried it.
