This should be a destination for any beer geek within a days drive. The draught menu is comprehensive and other worldly. The bottle selection is even more so. Just ask and chances are they have it. Upon arrival we ordered burgers, which despite theyíre lackluster status as a high society dish, were amazing. Perhaps the bust burger Iíve ever had, in fact. Upon seeing us plunging our noses into snifters, Jim approached us and we started to carry on about beer, their cellar, and huge menu. Half way through our burgers, Jim brought out complementary glasses of Pannepot- amazing! After a couple delicious brews, we explained our desire to meet a friend later, but were reluctant to do so due to driving home too late. Jim got a backpack filled with camping gear and showed us behind the pub. I would have never expected such accommodation, but there you have it. The best pub Iíve been to hands down.

Round 2. Well I didnít think an Ebenezers experience could get any better, but it seems as though thatís the case. After an epic night of Hommage and Dark Horizon 1st among other excellent pours, Chris hooked us up big time with a cellar tour and the opening of some ridiculous rarities which I wont list here.

Round 3 involved copious amounts of lambic and sour beer (pannepot wild, cantillon gueuze, vigneronne, coolship #9, Cantillon Kriek, free fou foune, etc...), Batch 1 Black Albert, more Dark Horizon 1st, and more cellar adventures. A complementary Kabert hookup was also part of epicness. Everything is just perfect...

Absolutely the best Pub Iíve ever been ! Thereís 31 different beer on Tap, mostly Belgian beers. The selection is amazing, Fantome,Val Dieu, ST-Bernardus, Piraat, Gnomette... even Peche Mortel ! The service is more than excellent. Chris and Jenni are really "Belgian-Beer-Geek" !! This place is a must seen in Maine.

Never a bad day at Ebs...Chris and all of the staff are friendly and obviously have a true love for beer. If you can make it for the Belgian Festival you will leave with a new appreciation for all things Belgian.

A truly amazing establishment. Chris literally opened the doors for my girlfriend and I. It was wonderful. He was our host for about 2 hours and would have gladly done it much longer had I not had to leave. The selection is without a doubt the best I have ever seen. I could go on and on, but there is a 1400 character limit.

Wow. If you love beer, youíll love Ebenezerís and Chris. The atmosphere is surreal I almost couldnít believe where I had been when I woke up the morning. What looks like a simple little pub in the snow of Maine country turns out to be Beer Mecca. Some come in for your everyday pub lunch seemingly unaware where they are, that lined up on the wall are 35 taps spewing out some of the worldís best and relatively rare beers that right next to them are endless bottles of the same that in the cellar are beers so rare that even the beer connaisseur could go a lifetime without seeing. Others do come for the beer and get all that and more from Chris, who will tell you everything you want, need, and didnít know you wanted to or needed to know about good olí water, barley, and hops. And while youíre there, donít be fooled into thinking the pub menu wonít make you salivate as well, of course best in conjunction with the world class beers. Itís hard to say more than what others have written (yes, I had Black Albert, Westvleteren, an amazing Cantillon Kriek on tap, Olfabrikken Porter, Mikkeller Big, Worse, Slaapmutske on tap, and there is so much more), so there is my weak attempt. Bottom line, stop reading about the darn place, get up, and go!

This place really does live up to the hype. My girlfriend and I flew from Chicago to Maine for the weekend just to come here, and it was worth it. Chris and Jen are great hosts, and Chris is an amazing wealth of knowledge and recommendations. The food is great, much better than ordinary pub food, and of course, a better beer selection than youíll find anywhere else. Plus, everyone there is friendly and helpful. If you like good beer and are anywhere near the area, or if you really like god beer and arenít anywhere near the area, you need to go.

This place totally deserves the hype it gets as one of the beer meccas on this planet. Unbelievable selection, both on tap and especially in bottles. Various Cantillons, Hanssens, Nognes, and De Dolles in bottle, among many others. Awesome brews like Brooklyn Black Chocolate and Dupont Avec Les Bons Voeux on tap as well. Food is excellent; had one of the better reubens Iíve had in recent memory. Staff is incredibly knowledgable, and the owner Chris went out of his way to make sure my friend and I had the most memorable night of beer tasting ever. Canít say enough. Every beer connoisseur should make a pilgrimage to this place before they die.

First off lets say this place has lived up to the hype and then some. I stopped in hoping for a tour of the cellar and I got it. The cellar was no let down. Chris and the rest of the staff were awesome. What a very nice place right on the edge of a golf course surrounded by trees. The food was very tasty and the beers were even better. Chris hooked me up with a couple very nice samples and even sent me home with a special treat. If you donít make it to Ebenezerís some time in your life you are missing out!!!!

Was a planned stop on a trip. Turned out to be during their Belgian fest. Food, beers, both delicious. Crazy drafts, insane cellar. And these guys love their beer. Really wish there was closer places to stay. Would definitely recommend, and return.
