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.

This place is not easy to find, but still well located near the Old Port. Inside, it’s not really big, but it’s beautiful! Service was a tad slow, but friendly and knowledgeable. The draft selection was amazing (Tilquin and Cantillon on draft), same goes for the bottle list. Food menu is small, but the soup, cheeses and chorizo we ordered were all very good. Price are good. Maybe my favorite beer bar so far! I even bought a t-shit!

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.

They had several Shelton brother festival beers and other interesting drafts. The bottle list is huge. Nice patio outside, staff were nice and seemed to know beer. Great beer bar.

My GPS told me I was there, but I couldn’t see it even after I drove by it, parked, and walked back by. Luckily Matt was already there and saw me circling and provided me with much needed directions. The entrance is at an alleyway/courtyard off exchange st near middle st and they have a 3 by 3 a frame sign there. Anyhow, huge kick ass deck at the entrance where I sat holds a dozen or so long tables, think German beer garden communal seating. There is a remote bar on the deck that was closed on my visit. Inside is the bar area with a cool cellar like feel to it holding maybe 20 tables and some bar seating. Small food menu but the meat and cheese plate that we tried was great and you can pick from a list. Beer, yup they have it. Quality taps and a huge bottle list make this place a winner in my book. Our server was attentive and helpful. A hint on the pricy side, but I feel that most of Portland has the same pricing structure. I will make this my first stop the next time I’m in Portland.

Amazing menu of beers, no denying. But the dudes who work there have their heads up their asses. Used to be a MUST-SEE for me in Maine...but I’d rather skip the snooty attitude and skip straight to the Great Lost Bear instead!
