A good brewpub in downtown Portland. I visited here on a weekday afternoon in July 2015. A nice cozy interior, small bar, and outdoor seating (with view of the harbor). A pretty large beer selection, with some unique offerings. I tried a vanilla wheat stout, kinderbock, foreign stout, and sour ale. Nothing crazy good, but all solid offerings. The food menu is somewhat limited and expensive. I had the lobster roll, which was delicious. Overall it is a decent stop - nice location (although parking can be a problem), beer is ok but plenty of styles to choose from, food is good but pricey.

This place has changed names and shrunk itís dining room since my last visit. Still pretty much the same otherwise, although the quality of the beers has much improved. Re: the french fries...We ordered a cone to share as an appetizer and they were pretty good. However, I received a side order of fries with my burger (I had asked for a salad but it was our serverís first day) and they were mushy. Learn to fry consistently! Old Review: Stopped in twice on my last swing through Portland, great service both times. Iím still not sure where to park. Nice big modern brewpub ambiance. Tried most of the house beers which were uniformly watery and failed to live up to the descriptions on the menu. Theyíre still getting the distillery going it seems as there wasnít much selection of house spirits. Cocktails with house spirits were good but nothing special for the high price point. I ordered french fries to share with friends and was frankly embarrassed when they brought out the plate of lukewarm, undercooked, grocery store freezer section potato turds. Pretzel and chocolate cake were great though.

Went in on a Friday night. No problems getting a spot. Decent draft list, with some solid variety. Nothing that really blew my mind, but definitely some solid offerings.

Has to be my favorite brewpub in Portland. Modern but wrenchy spot right on the harbor, outside deck looks over the water. They have about 12 beers on tap. My biggest complaint is about 5 of them play toward the non micro crowd, either directly or by being too approachable. The other beers are top notch. The Albino was a treat, both ipas were solid, and the Irish was very nice. Service was a bit spotty, not only taking a long time between interactions, but gave me the wrong change. Fun spot, with some of the better beer in town, but it is pricey. Iíll be back.

On the water with an outside deck. A lot of styles of house made beer and liquor available in samples and flights. We didnít eat so I donít know how the food is. Barrels and dark wood with dim lighting create a relaxed atmosphere. Definitely worth stopping in but, not a place that needs to be its own destination

Nice and spacious brewpub with clear view of the brewing kit behind the bar. Quite the range of beers and I ordered a flight of their hoppy offerings which were pretty decent. These guys do a number of collaboration beers of interest too,and can be found around town at the other bars. The bartender provided good service throughout. Food menu available. Itís a popular place and no doubt worth a visit when in Portland.

Visited on a Sunday evening. Close to Novare Res.

Ambiance: Enormous place and everything looked shiny and brand new. Some heavy dollars were spent here. Place was almost empty, which isínt completely surprising considering it was sunday night, but such a large place (and the location near the waterfront) I hope it gets busier the rest of the week.

Service: Friendly. A bit slow considering we were almost the only clients there BUT we were also 5 peoples ordering 5 flights each so I canít complain much here.

Selection: Good variery with 18 of their beers on tap as well as a few of their distillated products available. In terms of quality, it was mostly hit or miss like Julien said. Nothing was exceptionnal, but a few of their beers were more than decent.

Food: Didnít tried it, but it looked good.

Value: Price for the flights ($2,50 each) were very good. Other prices werenít bad either.

Overall: With a little improvment on their beers, this would be a really nice place to visit. I will probably come again next time Iím in Portland for a few ticks after Novare Res.

Went here last night, and I must say, this place is awesome. Lots of natural, re-purposed wood is everywhere. Lots of used barrel staves were re-purposed to make the light fixtures. They seem to have really put a lot of thought into the design of the place, focusing on beer-related decor. Last night was particularly dead, so we were, possibly 4 of 15 people, if that. The service was awesome. Our waitress was knowledgable, prompt, and checked in with us frequently. The selection was great, even though it is their beer, they seem to have a great range of styles available. The food was absolutely fucking delicious. I donít think Iíve been to a better brewpub, as far as food is concerned. The food prices were a little on the higher side, but the quality is there to show you what youíre paying for, that is - nothing is over-priced here. All in all, one of the best experiences Iíve had at a brewpub, hands down. I would easily come back, over and over, and over again. Cheers.

Very large place, used to go by the name of IníFiniti. Located in the busy part of Portland, on the waterfront really nice place. The bar itself is fabulous, large interior very nicely decorated. The food looked great but we unfortunately already had dinner so didnít try it out. They have 18 of their own beers on tap and do samples for 2.50 each which is great. The beers were really hit and miss for me though, ranging from quite good to very bland. Good place still, would revisit.

Also known my some bottling company name. I found 2 hour street parking to be easy, but this was mid-day and I basically parked on a snow bank, so that that for what itís worth. Deceptively large inside. Comfortable feel but they can fit a crowd. A ton of taps. tastes for $2.50 each. A wide range of style and the worst among them were above average. House whiskeys if thatís your thing. Lobster Rangoon was excellent. Prices not bad. Both bartenders were very helpful. Overall an essential stop in Portland.
