Hands down, one of the absolute best beer bars I have ever been to. I recommend sitting at a bar table or at the bar itself if you want the full experience. The bartenders here are crazy knowledgeable, and the restaurant boasts a veritable plethora of rare belgium and artisnal beers. Lionís Pride has an ever rotating list of 35 draught beers and coolers stocked with the best of the best.

Very nice atmosphere, excellent beer list, great service, good food - these were the impressions of my first visit. Beers are very well-presented, although glass sizes are small, esp. considering the prices. Iíll be going back.

I live in the New York City area, so my standards for beer bars are pretty high, and I have to say, this might be one of the most exceptional beer bars Iíve ever been to.
Letís start with the selection: Itís truly amazing. At least half (or more) of the taps are beers that you will have a hard time finding anywhere else - rare Belgians, an amazing selection of sours, and really special small batch American craft brews. While they have a handful of standbyís that are nearly always on tap, thereís plenty of variety to keep things interesting. Thereís never been a time when Iíve been to the pub and not had at least a handful of beers that I regretted not being able to try.
Second of all, the service: The couple that runs this place donít just know beer, they are truly educated and passionate about it. They handpick all the drafts, and have good reasons for each of their choices (which theyíll tell you about). If you want to really learn something, ask them about sours sometime! Everyone that works there is efficient and pleasant without being saccharine.
The environment is pretty great for the most part. The music is usually good - at the very least, they never play terrible cheesy pop songs. The food is excellent, and the bartenders/waitstaff can suggest pairings. Try the mussels and frites. Itís a great place for a nice dinner date, but also functions fine as a casual hang-out. Itís not super cheap, but you pay for what you get. Youíre going to pay a little more for some of the really exceptional beers.
This place has elevated my whole experience and appreciation for beer in ways Iíll always be thankful for. In short, Brunswick is seriously lucky to have this place: Lionís Pride ROCKS!

What a wonderful place. Definately worth a visit for anyone driving anywhere near Portland.
The selection of bottled beer and beer on tap is phenomenal. I actually got to try Black Albert, and it lived up to its reputation as one the worldís finest beers.
The food is amazing as well. The menu is based on Belgian food but is varied.
The service is simply outstanding. The bartender and waitress were extremely friendly and quite knowledgable about the many brews they have.
The decor inside the restaurant/bar is classy and inviting, and the location on route 1 just off I-295 is ideal.
I just wish that they had a bottle shop attached to the restaurant. I live 5 hours away (north, if you can believe it), so I really canít sample much.
All in all, a simply wonderful place. Do not miss it.

Very nice place (in the middle fo freaking nowhere again). Lots of beer paraphernalia and stuff. Incredible selection on tap. I had Wild Pannepot (but it was $14) and Mikkeler Simcoe. Very nice staff. Knowledgeable about beer and they seem to love it. Everyone is very friendly. I had the advantage of being there when it was not crowded but Iím sure it is great any time. I did not eat, but the food menu looked great and not as pricey as expected. Go!

Wow, this place is really in the middle of nowhere. Not at all impressive from the outside but the interior bar and restaurant is decorated with countless beer signs and posters. Excellent tap list. So excellent that I donít even recall picking up the bottle list. The food was equally as impressive. I had a burger which was quite tasty, and there were about 20 other things on the menu that had me licking my lips. Try the lamb lollipops!

This restaurant has a very nice beer-centered ambiance. It is decorated with all sorts of beer stuff, some very cool. We had supper there, the food was very good and reasonably priced. The staff is uber-knowledgeable and friendly too. We spent the entire evening chatting beer with the people there. The selection is great, they have a wide variety on tap and an amazing bottle selection. A very cool spot.

The place has nice hardwood floors with wooden table and chairs, itís full of beer paraphernalia. The service is great, the staff is friendly, knowledgable and attentive. Thereís a wide variety of quality taps and bottles. The food is also great, as good as Ebenezerís, we had beer gellattos that were localy made with Cantillon Rosť de Gambrinus, Cantillon Bruoscella and Panil Barriquťe, they were awesome! Overall, this place is as interesting as Ebenezerís, which is saying a whole lot.

Had to review this place again as I now come into this place on average, once a week. Truly an amazing place with awesome, hard to find beer on tap and two very educated, passionate beer enthusiasts behind the bar who can speak at great lengths about the beer on tap as well as beer in general. I usually go during off hours to ensure a place at the bar and spend my time trying crazy good beer, eating tasty food, and just talking shop. It has truly become my all time favorite beer destination and I make a point to go out of my way to visit.
