Another wonderful place in Maine. I intended on walking around Portland and exploring but spent way too much time in this bar trying the beers. Great imported Belgian tap list with some good locals to boot. Great service as well. A close second only to Ebenezer’s in the state.

This place is amazing. I love the atmosphere, the selection, the lack of pretentiousness.

A little difficult to find, but well worth it. A comfortable outdoor area leads to a cavernous old world style beer bar. Good food, nice tap and bottle selection. Good music and service. A must if your in the Portland area.

Great beer bar with the vibe of an old, Belgian bar. Service was good, but the place wasn’t crowded at the time and I assume that’s not always the case. Tap selection was great with plenty of rare kegs. Bottle selection was equally impressive with pages and pages of bottles organized by style. Great place overall.

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.

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.

Great selection of Belgian beers. It is usually very crowded and always very expensive. Can’t afford to go very often.

like most very good beer bars, the best time to visit is during off hours. this place can get quite crowded, and no matter where you are, crowded means that it can be tough to get fast service. but once you do get the attention of the wait staff, they’re friendly and helpful.
