The tap and bottle selection were phenomonal, and the owners were really gret people. I got some of the last of the first batch of Black Albert, and quite a few other Belgians that I have never heard of much less seen anywhere else. Outstanding!!!

This is Mecca for any beer lover. Over two nights there on vacation, my wife and I experienced first hand the unbelievable experience that is this pub. The waitstaff was cordial, prompt, and very knowledgeable considering how esoteric the draught list is - always nice when you get solid commentary on the flavor differences between Cantillon St. Lamnivus and Vigneronne. Selection is stunning, food is solid and local. But beyond this is the incredible generosity of the owner, Chris. We let him know we had made the trip just to visit him, and not only did he make it a point to repeatedly come and say thank for coming, but time after time, he brought unbelievable and rare beers to try unbidden over and over again, the highlight of which was a bottle of Brooklyn Black Ops. We had incredibly high expectations of our visit to Ebenezarís, and incredibly, Chris blew those out of the water. When we left we were already asking ourselves how soon we could possibly return.

This place lived up to its reputation. They had 34 beers on tap and not a dud in the group. My wife and I made the trip up on a Saturday from New York. Chris and Jen had a private party on the porch and another upstairs and the rest of the place was hoping yet Chris still took time to come over and talk beer with me. We had dinner as well and everything was wonderful and the staff very attentive. So here is a little taste of what we had to taste. 1st round De Struise Witte and Pannepot. 2nd Round Gouden Corolus Triple and Bier Du Boucaneer. 3rd round Augustijn Triple and De Struise Pannepot Denmark version. 5th De Struise Black Albert. 6th De Struise Struiselensis and finishit off with just a little more Black Albert. Oh yeah it was a great night.

Small, cozy pub in the middle of nowhere. Adjacent to a golf course and snowmobile trails. A belgian oasis off a Maine backroad. The nicest people you will ever meet own and run the place. Service is great and the food is exceptional. The beer selection is 90% Belgians, with vintage bottles in the cooler and plenty on tap. Some as rare as youíde ever find at the Kulminator. 30 minutes from North Conway and a lot closer than Belgium. Beer events here are legendary, Chris is the consumate host. More taps adding soon, as well as a brewery coming on line in the future featuring guest brewers from Struise, LaChouffe, and others. Highly recommended.

Best bar Iíve ever been too. Only stayed 1 hour w/ a friend, dropped $60 including tip, and it was worth every penny. They are sure to have something youíve never tried before. Bartenders/Waitress know thier stuff, tell them the style of beer you like and they will guide you from there. Be prepared to spend some cash, beers on tap, run anywhere from $5-$10 but youíll have a blast. Awesome place!

Went with group of 12 friends for the Belgian Fest. Chris is an amazing host- brought us some phenomenal stuff from his personal collection. We had a bonfire on the lake with the De Stroise brewers and had a bunch of Lost Abbey Ale while chatting and enjoying each otherís company around the fire. I WILL be back as soon as I can.

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.

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.

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.

The best beer bar in Maine 17 taps- Bernadus 12, 2004 Bigfoot, Petrus triple, La Gnomette. Old Engine Oil, Maredsous 8. Chris is so enthusiastic about beer it turns the most timid sipper into a gourmand. There are maybe 500 bottles of beer at all times. truly one of the best beer halls in the country

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.
