Great Beer
At Centennial, our passion is craft beer and our focus is simple: to celebrate craft beer. Beer can bring people together on a common ground and has the ability to create a community. Beer can elevate food. Beer is culture.

We feature 56 taps with a selection of 36 rotating craft beers. In addition to our taps, we feature a high volume of beers available in bottles and cans, as well as a curated selection of craft spirits and wines.

Centennial also features chef-driven food with an emphasis on craft beer. The menu focuses on beer pairings and incorporating beer as an ingredient. Centennial also features a house made charcuterie program in addition to a menu with emphasis on smoked, char grilled, and wood-fired ingredients.

The beer selection was really good, and the service was excellent despite a noticeably busy staff.

Centennial was recommended when I couldn’t decide where to take a friend whom I hadn’t seen in over 20 years. What a winner! The gin cocktail was so refreshing! Then there was such a great list of beers that we could both be happy and catch up for hours. I sincerely appreciated the staff because they let us stay well past our time limit and allowed us to catch up. The frites and pretzel were as one would expect, but the lamb appetizer was outstanding! The atmosphere was super and the open doors kept air flowing which I appreciated. I am so excited to go back for a girls night!

I've been a few times now and really enjoy the atmosphere. Great, extensive beer list and a small, focused menu with enough food options for everyone to enjoy. Have had dinner and brunch and both were delicious.

We sat outside in one of the heated spaces for brunch on a Sunday and it was nice and warm with the heater on. Our group ordered a variety of items off the menu and loved everything we received. To top it off, our server was so lovely - I wish I remembered his name to shout him out by name. Will definitely return.

The staff knowledge of the beer menu is unparalleled. My date and I went in with very different beer preferences but were both able to find something we loved thanks to the great suggestions and wealth of knowledge at hand.

We had a fabulous experience! The service and food are exceptional! Mussels, Lamb Flatbread, Polish Sausage Sandwich, and Cauliflower Steak were most delicious... and the FREE frites on Sunday night are a plus! The sidewalk sliding doors were open to Clark St., and the sunset was gorgeous! Our only complaint was that we were 5, crammed on to a table for 4, when there was a table for 2, which we could have added to ours. The fireplace was very nice, later in the evening! We will return!
