First stop in Portland and arrived late afternoon so only a few folks hanging out with a pint. I ordered a tasty chilli dog and pint. Happy hour sees $3 pints on selected pours. Good tap selection with 100% Maine breweries. The lady serving was very friendly and chatty. Nice homely vibe going on here. This is a cool joint for a beer and snack.

Great ambience, plenty of seating and the sausages are freaking awesome! The beer selection is top notch. I went during the week so it was quiet but I imagine it fills up on the weekend. Staff was also great. Really enjoyed the vibe of this place.

The Thirsty Pig is more of a sausage restaurant than a beer destination; but the sausages are so damn good! It can be found on Exchange Street, almost across from the entrance to Novare Res (See My Reveiw) and amid the hustle and bustle of the Old Port. It consists of a large single room strewn with tables, with booths along the wall. There is a small semi-circlar bar in the middle, where you get the grub. There is loud music blasting away - during my visit, the TV above the bar was running "The Big Lebowski." The beer selection was limited to 10 frequently rotating taps, but well chosen and included Long Trail, Gritty and the superb Rising Tide Zephyr. I enjoyed this place, because I love fresh sausages, which come in several varieties, and these are worth a visit. Just avoid the chilli relish or you will die. Great eats with decent beer. Not bad. The Thirsty Pig abides.

Tucked into he heart of the old port of Portland this places has a nice back patio with a nice little bar atmosphere on the inside. Food is pretty standard with lots of sausage and hot dog selections but nothing that got me overly excited. The draught list ranges from really poor local offerings such as Shipyard to good one offs from Allagash and Oxbow. Nice little spot for lunch and a couple brews but nothing worth traveling for.

Solid spot. Dozen largely New England craft tap including a few real beauties. Sausages, hit dogs and some other pub fare on the menu. Service at the bar is quick enough. Good spot!

Came in to watch part of the hockey game and have a beer, didnít eat, found a couple of nice beers to have, right across the street from Novare Res. Enjoyed my time there. What I remember of it.

Directed across the street by the bartenders at novare res and found this little spot. 8 taps of local beer, some local bottles, and lots of versions of housemade sausage! The sweet italian with peppers and onions was great! The bartender/server was very cool and local craft knowledgeable. This place is bright and pld fashioned looking...nothing flashy...more of a restaurant than bar. Cool place for a late snack and last beer.
