The Marcum’s developer, CMC Properties, helped recruit the Elliott family’s Casual Pint franchise to Hamilton based on their existing relationship at another CMC development, Loveland Station.
“The Casual Pint has been a favorite among the city of Loveland and certainly of our residents at Loveland Station,” said CMC President Jim Cohen. “There’s nothing like walking downstairs and having a cold pint with friends and neighbors.”
