Amazing place in the middle of nowhere. Ordered a Struise Ypres on tap after walking in and Chris proceeds to lay out a whole pannepot taster flight in front of me with 4 different pannepot titles. Then, as if that wasnít enough, he lays out an Italian Toccalmatto flight to taste his newest exclusive import. Gave an extended tour of the incredible cellar down below as well. The other bartenders were great as well - I was the last one out the door. Also, the hamburger and fries were great.

Long drive to a secluded spot. Nice tap and bottle selection for the commoners. If you knew Chris or if he was there, I hear the cellar is legendary. Unfortunately heís not in much.

First time at the mythical Ebenezerís Pub. Comfortable place in a small town. Ambiance is ok, but we went there on a Friday afternoon so it may explain the lack of ambiance. At your arrival, we were served a free small glass of an unidentified (but pretty damn good) lambic. After that service was average to good, but the owner took the time to let us visit is impressive cellar. Food was good, but not great. The draft selection was ok, but not more and it was really pricey. The bottle selection (what was available, not what was in the cellar) was good, but didnít lived up to the reputation of the place. Overall, itís a nice place and I think I would return, especially for the special event. But, on a normal day, I prefer Lionís Pride and Novare Res (this place rocks!) in the area!

Nice little place with a farmhouse feel to it if you disregard the golfers just outside the window. Ambiance was good enough, service was OK. We got the mythical cellar tour with a friendly Chris (which was quite busy that day but still managed to guide us to the lambic room for us to choose or next and final libation). Taplist was good although some products on there could be priced a little better. Food was more than decent and the mysterious bottle that Chris pulled out to share with everyone was a nice touch. I still donít know what it was to this time but my guess would be some unknown and rare fruit lambic if it is not "only" a vintage Fouífoune. Iíll most likely be back for some special events and I would most likely be a regular if I was a local but I would not plan my trip around it for now since there is so much other things to see and taste in the area.

We usually hit Ebenezerís after hiking and I am blown away again and again. Not only is the food generally very good, but the selection of beers is mind-blowing. My very first time there, we had a great lunch with perfect service and pairing recommendations and capped it off by splitting a bottle of Cantillon Iris and embarking on a lengthy tour of the cellar with Chris. Incredible experience. Every time I have been back it has been perfect - terrific tap selection, very chatty and knowledgeable staff, delicious food. World Class, indeed!

Second trip...a year after the first. Service was excellent this time and Chris treated me to a quick tour of the beer cellar. Beer selection was improved and fully stocked this time! Awesome visit and I was pleased that things were much improved! I visited Ebenezers on a recent to trip to Maine and was super excited to go as Iím from PA and knew that this might be a once in a lifetime chance to visit. Excellent scenic and quaint out of the way location. The bar is situated on a beautiful scenic spot on a golf course in the woods of Maine in a small town of less than 1000. The atmosphere is relaxed...picnic tables on the screened porch and wood tables in a small and tight bar/restaurant that is dimly lit. Minimal tvs and no music...its about the beer. The beer selection is astounding...some tough to find stuff. But the prices reflect it...beer of this quality (weíre talking cantillon, struise, glazen toren, and many others) does not come cheap. The food was mostly good except my fish and chips entree which was soggy and undercooked inside. This may be explained by the high volume of the place and after talking with the owner who personally contacted me regarding this matter it seems to be the exception and not the rule. Service was a bit slow but it was likely tough to accommodate a crowd that was so amped over a Pats game. Id like mkre beer knowledge in my server but Iíve been spoiled by places in the philly area where there is a huge population to draw talent from...not so many beer phanatics in a town of 900. Hope I get there again one day to experience it again.

Went 2 hours out of the way to check out this highly hyped beer nerd destination and sadly it was a waste of time. I cannot recommend anyone making the trip without a confirmation from the owner that he will be there, if he responds to you. A similar theme of Lionís Pride emerged as it was understaffed for a Friday, only one server for the whole place. The draft list was solid, but pedestrian compared to Lionís Pride. A rare treat was Pannepot Wild, and an awesome Swedish pale ale. Outside of that, commonly available drafts. Bottles in front of the bar were common stuff available anywhere. The menu lists those beers and a few others that are supposedly available, like Cantillon. Alas, anything not in those fridges was accessible. The lambic cellar and the other cellar were off limits to view, and off limits to staff to get beers out of it. The food was basically that of Lionís Pride, and frankly wasnít as good. The server was nice and tried to be helpful knowing we came specifically to check out their cellar. However, she seemed more concerned about me writing a bad review, as she mentioned several times to me that she was worried I would write a bad review because I was unable to see what I came to see. I did message the owner about my coming in hopes of picking a time he would be there to ensure what happened to me, wouldnít have happened. I got no reply weeks in advance. I take responsibility for still going and being disappointed. However, if youíre going to make your name as beer place with a sick cellar have access to it available at all times, not some random time. I feel cheated, my time was wasted, and sadly its so far out of the way, Iíll never be back.

Would you think that the "best" beer place in the world would. 1) Know how to spell Cantillon on their website menu? 2) Have enough respect for beer to not serve Budweiser? Whats wrong with this picture? .
