Visited during the Twelve Percent and Shelton Bros fest, and Urbain took us backstage to the bwers area. Free food and free beer, can’t beat that. It was a bit odd for staff to almost snatch the beers out of our hands at closing time, but that was the only minor quibble in an otherwise great visit. Tap and bottle lists were very solid, great atmosphere.

Located off a side alley and it’s easy to spot the sign on the Exchange Street side, just across from Thirsty Pig. Nice and comfortable inside when not too packed. They were hosting a Belgian beer fest over the weekend which is all good and well, and fortunately there were local beers still pouring on tap too such as Oxbow, Allagash, Maine Beer Co etc. I only had snacks but food menu available. Outside patio is great for warmer days. Service is fine but expect it to slow right down when busy. I enjoyed my visits here.

This is a nice beer location just off the main Portland harbor front with a nice selection of beers, and open arms for the brewer’s reception following The Festival.

This is a cool little basement beer bar, nestled away in a corner of Portland. We sat on the sprawling outdoor deck and adored the draft list, choosing a couple of the wide array of big beers from the region (the list also included a raucous lineup of European and other American liver-killers). We sampled a cheese plate (well done) and enjoyed a nice summer evening. Only hit on the place was the somewhat over-taxed and slightly snooty server; but still my favorite beer stop in Portland.

Kind of a dungeon cellar vibe, so it plays well at night. Lots of young people hang out there so it can get kind of loud but they have an awesome bottle selection as well as some well-curated taps. Definitely a cool hang on a Saturday night.

This place is legit. Ambiance is cave like inside with stone and wood everywhere while the outside has a cool deck with a small stand with 4 more tap choices. The beer selection is top notch. I had some Fastenbier, which is always a nice, rare find. Regionals, locals, Lambics, rare stuff, etc. are available and everything into brand-appropriate glassware. The food menu looks great but I didn’t get to eat here. If you’re in Portland, just go here.

Super cool place. Amazing ambiance. Outdoor patio seating, darker, posh interior. Crazy tap list- definitely in the top top. This was one of the super bars picked by Cantillon to host Zwanze Day 2011. Bottle list is enormous. Tap list is updated online. There is food but I’ve only gotten cheese/cracker/sausage plates to pair with the beer. The Trappist in Oakland is very similar to this place. Excellent.

Small, lowkey place. A little tricky to find as it’s behind a building an a single A-frame was the only hint to it’s location. Low light, lots of bricks, low ceilings. It seemed like there was a lot of staff for the clientele. Staff was friendly, but not terribly helpful.. Food options look nice but I did not partake. Top notch beer list with local selections and more rare stuff from near and far. I got to try a pretty rare Allagash here. Prices decent. I’d be here a lot if I were a local.

A classy restaurant with a large patio. Pretty pretty good cellar list and decent tap list, with correct poured temperature and over a large bar. Hard to find, we circled one way streets a few times until I found a tourist map with the clue on how to enter by foot. A number of weird and ordinary people here, they make up a good part of the city but in the end they are harmless.

Novare Res should be at the top of any self-respecting beer lover’s tour of Portland. It is hidden away in the centre of Portland off a backstreet from Exchange Street. Out front there is large patio area with plenty of tables. Indoor feels like a Belgian cellar bar - dark & moody. They have some 25 taps on offer as well as a large bottles list (quoted as being over 500). Beer selection is varied, high-quality and interesting. They have a great mix of local and international beers. Lots of obscure sour beers and obtuse adjunct stouts. Couple that with good service and you have yourself a grade A beer joint. A must-visit.
