This bar should not be able to inherit the ratings from Lionís Pride.
Visited on a trip from Texas and was disappointed... based on what I expected from ratings on this site.
There are about 25 taps, maybe 6 active, it was hard to count the amount not available. Of those that remained the lemon saison was pretty good. I asked for a sample of their BBC porter and was told they could not even though it was priced on the menu for $2. All the taps are dedicated to their beers, to be clear there are no guest beers on tap.
Our waitress could not bother to smile and charged us for things we did not order.
We visited during a USA world cup match and while 80 pct of the customers were obviously staring at the game they would not turn the sound on.
I understand they are a new local business and wish them the best in turning this around.

Visited on a trip to Portland back in 2013 (from notes). A quick trip outside of Portland by car. It was called the Lionís Pride when we had originally visited. We were there over lunch with one bartender that got quite busy which made the service less than desirable at times. The draft list was outstanding with locals and just good beers in general. The bottle list was quite extensive as well. Our food was decent but nothing special just some typical pub like fare. The beer and food prices were reasonable but overall not place I would go seeking out. That being said, it was much better experience than the one we had at its sister bar Ebenezerís Kezars the following day. Worth the visit if you are going this way but not for the special occasion.

Name change from Lionís Pride about 3 months ago when they secured funding and added the capacity to brew. Decent atmosphere, lots of beer stuff on the walls and some cool paintings of beer labels and logos (including Surly!). Pretty solid beers. $2 tasting pours of their beers. 6 on tap (normally 7) and they are working their way towards 13 according to the brewmaster. A few bottles in the coolers (leftovers from Lionís Pride?). 2 sours on tap (not theirs, but certainly appreciated). Some comments on their Facebook page about pooling tips and the salaried manager also getting a cut. Not sure about this, but the folks helping me seemed happy enough.

Very nice atmosphere, excellent beer list, great service, good food - these were the impressions of my first visit. Beers are very well-presented, although glass sizes are small, esp. considering the prices. Iíll be going back. UPDATE 1/7/14 My comments echo those of TheBeerBabe. Iím going to drop down my rating.

Visited with Andrew during the weekend of The Festival 2013. Nice draft selection and an incredible bottle list. Had a couple cantillons and some fresh IPAs on draft. Good service.

Stopped here with my wife on the way from Portland to Bar Harbor for a few days. It was a lazy Sunday afternoon and we had the place mostly to ourselves. The taplist is impressive and the bartender was more than happy to chat about anything up there and did seem quite knowledgeable. We also ordered lunch and it was good stuff, elevated pub fare, well priced. Certainly worth a stop. And yes, the tap handles are rather beautiful.

Not quite as amazing as Ebenezer Kezarís but this place is fixing up to be much better as they are currently in the process of installing brewing equipment. Tap list much like Ebenezerís but only half of them were working when I was in because they were rerouting them for their soon-to-come house brews. Bottle list is stunning, like Ebenezerís. Ambiance isnít quite as homey but then I was in on a Sunday night so there were few people there.

Two rooms, one with an L-shaped bar, Belgian kitsch on the walls. 34 interesting taps, heavy on the Belgian stuff, with only a few local choices. No bottle list, but you can check the fridge for whatís there. Server was pleasant, but knew nothing about the beers. Food was OK. Ample parking. More of a restaurant than a beer bar. Decent enough, but not worth going too far out of your way to try.

Updated my review as most of the enthusiastic and knowledgable staff are no longer there. Maybe itís when I come in, but I feel like thereís a little dull to the sparkle that used to be there. Still a good tap selection, and pretty good food, but Iím not as excited to go there any more as I once was.

Stopped in for dinner on 7/2/13. Nice place with a vast selection on tap and in bottles. Good selection of burgers with beer-inspired names like Pliny the Burger. Service was great.
