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? .

There are plenty of great reasons Ebenezerís is the number 1 beer bar in the world. First is the owners Chris and Jen run the place like a Swiss watch. I was there from a Wednesday to a Sunday during the 8th Annual Belgium Beerfest. Chris is a great guy, full of life, with a passion for great craft beer. Jen is as nice as they come and runs the service staff to perfection. Kudos to Maryanne and the entire staff. The location is part of the allure. A huge seating area and an outdoors that is located right on a golf course makes for the perfect place to have a few beers. Another great reason for Ebenezerís success is the food. Chris is a world class chef and every dish, meal after meal was solid and top notch. I was made to feel at home and it was obvious I was appreciated and welcomed. Those attributes are important to me and Ebenezerís does it right. I will be back as it is only short 20 hour drive from Atlanta. Rock on Ebís!

A really cool place in the middle of nowhere in Maine. A lot of Belgian beers, plus some random foreign beers. The service was pretty fast even though we were there late. The food was good, especially the fries. The prices were a little expensive, but for this selection and atmosphere it was worth it. Did not get to tour the cellar, but Iíll try to go back to see it.

Out of the way drive from Portland, I wouldnít want to do this in bad weather. Amazing tap list, good bottle list. The cellar, I hear its legendary but did not want to chance owner not being there if I returned late afternoon. Serviers very young and knew something about the beer, The place has a small feeling however there are many available tables and a large tentlike area outside. Very rare taps on, and I did what I could to have several higher alcohol ones. Hard to find on GPS. Small bar.

Took a detour with my wife on a Sunday afternoon trip back to Maine and boy am I glad we did ! Great lil gem tucked in the Maine woods along a golf course by Kezar Falls. We took a table inside so I could get a better feel for the operation and a better glimpse of the bars atmosphere. The draft list was great with lots of good selections that arenít on draft at any of the other beer spots in Maine and that was encouraging knowing all the ME distributors and what they carry and then seeing what the Livelyís have acquired... it was obvious they make things happen and take care in their selections ! The food was fresh and a perfect compliment to the rustic bar atmosphere. My wife had a lobster roll and I had a killer chicken sandwich... we also split a salad and our waitress gladly split it into two dishes. After a few glasses and some nibbles we had the pleasure of a cellar tour with Chris who was a gracious host full of good stories and insights into the world beer scene. The Lambic bar will make you drool and its contents are museum worthy... World Class Bar for sure !

Tiny place. Overall ambience was good not great. Over-priced for a back woods bar. Menu doesnít explain much about the beers they have. Food was good, only had appetizers though. Can say Iíve been there, but donít feel a need to go back, despite summering/skiing in Mt. Washington Valley every year. My expectations were too high. Too bad.

Horrible expirience here. Way out of the way, but made the trek because iíd heard good things. The beer selection was weak, i wasnít impressed. I asked multiple questions about beers on tap and was answered "i dont know" more often than not. Food was not very good, burger apperead (and tasted) like a premade frozen patty. Server was Missing in action for most the the time we were there and i had to wait an excessive ammount of time for my card to be returned to the table so i could leave.

Such an oddball out of the way location. Iím not sure thereís much I can add to this experience. Chris gave us a mindblowing tour of his cellar, including the brand-spanking-new Lambic room, which made me drool and cry. The draft list is probably the best deal here, with the bottles being rather pricey. The tour was awesome, but it was a bit of tease to see mindboggling beers and then not have a shot at them, not that I could afford it. The waitstaff was super attentive and kept tabs on me frequently. BEST MOTHERFUCKING FRITES EVER!!!! A wonderful summer afternoon experience, with great hosts and great beer in fitting glassware.
