Out of the way drive from Portland, I wouldn’t 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 aren’t 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 Lively’s 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 doesn’t explain much about the beers they have. Food was good, only had appetizers though. Can say I’ve been there, but don’t 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 i’d heard good things. The beer selection was weak, i wasn’t 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. I’m not sure there’s 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.

Went to Ebenezers at opening on the Sunday of Memorial weekend coming up from Hill Farmstead. Stayed for lunch, drinks and a gracious cellar tour shared by the owner Chris Lively who was very friendly and full of stories. Good food, awesome tap and bottle list with great service. I would love to come visit again.

Lors de mon déplacement à Montréal pour le Mondial de la bière de juin 2011, j’ai fait une petite visite aux Etats Unis pour me rendre à L’Ebenezer. Le GPS m’a emmené dans un chemin de terre puis au pied d’un golf ! J’étais aussi au pied de ce fameux Ebenezer !!! J’ai eu la chance de rencontrer le propiétaire qui m’a reçu comme une princesse en regrettant amérement de ne pas parler Français ! J’ai apprécié la visite des caves et admiré l’énorme quantité de bières de type gueuze ! J’ai pu découvrir de merveilleux produits de la brasserie Russian River. Encore merci Chris.

Went on Columbus day weekend, and it was pretty mobbed. Luckily we had made a reservation, so seating wasn’t an issue, and since we were there for the long haul, didn’t mind if we had a wait a little bit for our food. Had Jolly Pumpkin Madruga Obscura on tap and the Stillwater BA Existent in a bottle along with some other rarities. It was too bad that it was so busy as it made it near impossible to chat with Chris and Jen, but we still had a blast. Food was excellent and the beer selection was amazing. Planning to go back on a quieter weekend to get the full experience.

I have spent many a night here. It is the best beer bar in the world. Chris and Jen are the best hosts. The food is great. Especially during the Belgian Beer fest during August when the premier beer chefs in the world are around. There is not a rare beer that does not exist in the cellar. The best of the best of bottles and drafts.
Honestly it is pretty expensive but... Cheaper that a flight to Brussels right? Ii cannot go without spending 100$ but I have never left the place without being completely satisfied.
If you are stateside and you cannot go to Belgium go to Lovell during the Belgian fest, It is as good as anything over there.
