Big outdoor seating area as well as a dark cozy bar and dining room inside. Great selection of taps and bottles highlighting local and Belgian beers. The option to mix and match charcuterie and cheeses is nice, if a little pricy. Service was disinterested on my one visit, but would not stop me from trying it again.

Indoor space in the basement that qould be cozy in the winter and an outdoor patio off a secluded alley. Large selection that includes some hard to find beers. No bargains, and even local taps start at $6.25. Speaking of local taps , there are surprisingly few Maine beers. But this is a nice place with a large and high quality selection. I heard a young lady ask for a beer with hops and the snarky waiter told her that almost all beers have hops, hardly the attitude for someone getting into craft beer.

Went here recently on a Friday night. "Belgian" fest. Great ambiance and vibe. Very excellent service - bartenders were all very knowledgeable and went out of their way with samples and explaining. Selection was impressive, but somewhat limited in styles. Only 1 IPA on tap. Didn’t eat - only a dessert. Prices were a little pricy. Still a great experience, overall.

Même si la tap list était un peu dégarnie à notre arrivée, j’ai vu le potentiel de la place. Plus de la moitié du bar est une terrasse vivante et l’autre partie fait plus petite taverne de quartier.

Not quite enough seating and the noise level was a bit high-it was hard to hear. However, this in an excellent place well worth visiting!

Nice spot kinda hidden from the Old Port. Huge outdoor deck with tons of tables. Not much of a view. Inside is dark and small, but has a nice old world feel. Selection is very solid for the area. Food is gastro pubby with a Belgian leaning. If you’ve only got time for one, hit their sister location Infiniti brewpub and distillery.

IN a basement which the girlfriend wasnt a fan of. Great tap selection even though they were kicked on many. The bottle selection was good too.

Always packed on weekends. Great place to hang out and drink the best beers in the world. Really if you’re not here you better be dead or in jail.
