Établissement visité le dimanche 18 mai vers 17h30, j’ai passé 4 heures là. Ambiance: Petit pub siitué presque sur un parcours de golf. Plein d’affiche belge sur les murs. Grande terrasse couverte. Service: J’ai jamais eu un meilleur service ailleurs. Le personnel est attentionnée et que dire du propriétaire Chris est tout un numéro. Toujours prêt a vous conter l’histoire qui se cache derrière chacune de ses bières. De plus la femme de Chris est venu nous rapporter à notre auberge. à 10 km de là, après notre soirée. Sélection: Je ne crois pas qu’on peut trouver plus vaste sélection en Amérique du Nord. Sur le menu vous avez seulement le tier de ce que Chris a à vous offrir. Son cellier est peut-être bordélique mais il contient d’innombrable trésor. Nourriture: Chaudrée de palourdes et roulé de homard correct. Le menu va complètement changé au cours du mois de juin. (96e rating d’établissement)

Chris Lively has created Beer Geek Paradise in the middle of freakin’ nowhere, Maine. The 35 taps are extremely alluring and the expansive bottle selection as much so, but if Chris is around you might not even get the chance to get drink from this mouthwatering menu. You see, there are many, many more bottles hiding in his cellar which he can break out if you are interested. The selection down there is almost absurd. From 25-year-old Westveleteren, to a plethora of Lost Abbeys, the entire vintage lineup of Thomas Hardy’s and SN Bigfoot, Struise Earthmonk, and on, and on, and on...We had the pleasure of sitting with Chris the entire evening (we were there on a Sunday evening, so during a pretty quiet period) and let’s just say I’m almost shy to tell you what he brought out for us. I see from other ratings that Chris does this quite often for the travelling craft beer lover, so if you plan on visiting, do make it a point to contact him and Jen beforehand and you might just be treated to an early piece of heaven. They gave us a ride back to our hotel after the evening, which was highly appreciated. Such quality and generosity have rarely been put together on this beery planet. And all this in a most unpretentious and casual house in the middle of the forest...

Address difficult but is also ’road 3’on old GPS machines, but easy to find - drive past the golf course heading away from NH, turn left onto a dirt road and hey presto you’re there. The owner has such a passion for beer I have never seen such enthusiasm, which shows up in every facet of his bar resto. He sometimes does not have the correct glasses, but the closest to the original is always used - you have to raise your hat, for a bar so far outside usual BB stamping grounds, his glassware is just about perfect, and his beers are perfect. He not only has BB’s, he has a permanent exhibition of the best of the handcrafted bees that the USA has to offer - He had some of Thomme Arthurs beers, well....... stunning for a poor old Luxembourger. My advice, find it, try the beer selection, get to know Chris, Jenny.... - sleep on the porch- ME smokies see in the dark! and come down hard.

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.

This place more than lives up to its billing as the best in the world. There is so much to say about it. First off, incredible tap and bottle selection. Literally a who’s who of the best Belgium (and Scandinavia, incidentally) has to offer. Food wise, I would have been perfect with something even half as good as what is on the menu - really great grub and reasonably priced. Really fun and friendly environment, locals, snowmobilers, diehard beer guys all soaking it up together. Crazy as it sounds, the best part of this place isn’t the beer. It’s the owners. Chris and Jen are amazingly hospitable: service was crazy good, attentive, supremely knowledgeable. They had absolutely no need to treat us the way they did and yet they pulled out all the stops: copious Black Albert and rare and vintage beers that I hesitate to list for fear people will start to expect it every time they visit. Trust me, you can expect all you want and you’ll still be blown away. It’s best just to go and let it all play out. You will not be disappointed.

Ooh boy... this is it. This is THE place for beer in the United States. The beer is incredible.. the food is just as outstanding. So it’s a little far... far from EVERYTHING.. but who cares? If you make the drive, you will be really rewarded. You can’t top the regular draught list.. and the vintage beers available are really incredible (you want a 25 year old Westvleteren 12? Petit Orval? Westmalle Extra? Chimay Doree? Thomas Hardy’s from the Stone Age? THERE IS NO END TO THE INSANITY). The service is incredible, Mr. Lively will pull out all the stops for you. I was offered a King’s Share sample of the Black Albert (if there is any one reason to make the trip, it’s solely for this beer), and some really interesting blends of Gueuze and Lambic. Simply put, this place crushes any other beer bar in the US. The service in superb, the food is wonderful (especially the Chimay Burger). The only (slight) downside is the location.. but it’s a nice drive through some tiny New England towns. Overall, this place is unbeatable. Just go!

Wow. If you love beer, you’ll love Ebenezer’s and Chris. The atmosphere is surreal I almost couldn’t 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 world’s 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 didn’t know you wanted to or needed to know about good ol’ water, barley, and hops. And while you’re there, don’t be fooled into thinking the pub menu won’t make you salivate as well, of course best in conjunction with the world class beers. It’s 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 has amazing beers (including the best one I have ever had...BLACK ALBERT). The ambience is very good, the food is great, and the service is spectacular! I have been to Ebenezer’s 4 times and, each & every time, the service has been amazing. I have always gone to Ebenezer’s with my 11-year-old Niece (who has leukemia). She usually has some special requests of the wait-staff (to keep her entertained, while we adults sample really good beers), and the waitresses have always been so very accomodating to her, that the total experience has been among the best that one could expect!!!

Amazing beer bar. I had the pleasure of meeting Chris and I truly enjoyed his passion for craft beer. I was waited on by Jennifer and she made my friends and I feel right at home. Awesome selection. The Black Albert was insane. Had to much good beer to list. Drove 3 hours to get there but it was well worth every second. Thanks again Ebenezers.

Outstanding Beerbar and Restaurant with traditional US food and Belgian inspired dishes often prepared with beer. It is located on a very beautiful spot next to a Golf course. The food is just great and the staf is very friendly and professional. It is amazing to see so much beers on drought and such wide range of de crème de la crème of bottle conditioned beers. All beers are served with love and in a perfect way. Lots of vintage beers up to 20 or even 30 years old. Chris has also a great collection of Big Bottles, 3L 4,5L 6L even 9L bottles of the best beers in the world. If you wanna sample a Westy 12, no problem, Ebenezers has it. This is a superb place, with the most fantastic people and the greatest selection of beers i’v seen in the US, This is America’s Kulminator.
