Visite un vendredi soir, assez tranquille, ambiance confortable qui s’est métamorphosé en frat boys night un peu plus tard. La sélection de fût était très solide, beaucoup d’Italienne et belge rares. Chris a été particulièrement disponible et la visite du cellier a été particulièrement animée. Une fois le temps de manger, la bouffe était plus qu’adéquate et les assiettes qui circulaient avait de la gueule. J’ai déjà hâte d’y retourner pour traverser la tap list.

One of my favorite places on earth. Incredible one of a kind selections in the basement. Chris and Jen make me feel like family. It’s remote location and strong offerings make this a must do vacation destination. The food menu is also often strong as Chris is a chef and has guests chefs in as well.

Cozy ambiance, feels at home, reminded me of English pubs. Very attentive and polite service. Needless to say, an impressive selection of draft beers. Food: delicious lobster roll and the rest of the menu looked good and varied. The owner, Chris, is very sympathetic, not a snob at all despite being the owner of such a renowned beer cave.

Amazing place in the middle of nowhere. Ordered a Struise Ypres on tap after walking in and Chris proceeds to lay out a whole pannepot taster flight in front of me with 4 different pannepot titles. Then, as if that wasn’t enough, he lays out an Italian Toccalmatto flight to taste his newest exclusive import. Gave an extended tour of the incredible cellar down below as well. The other bartenders were great as well - I was the last one out the door. Also, the hamburger and fries were great.

Long drive to a secluded spot. Nice tap and bottle selection for the commoners. If you knew Chris or if he was there, I hear the cellar is legendary. Unfortunately he’s not in much.

First time at the mythical Ebenezer’s Pub. Comfortable place in a small town. Ambiance is ok, but we went there on a Friday afternoon so it may explain the lack of ambiance. At your arrival, we were served a free small glass of an unidentified (but pretty damn good) lambic. After that service was average to good, but the owner took the time to let us visit is impressive cellar. Food was good, but not great. The draft selection was ok, but not more and it was really pricey. The bottle selection (what was available, not what was in the cellar) was good, but didn’t lived up to the reputation of the place. Overall, it’s a nice place and I think I would return, especially for the special event. But, on a normal day, I prefer Lion’s Pride and Novare Res (this place rocks!) in the area!

Nice little place with a farmhouse feel to it if you disregard the golfers just outside the window. Ambiance was good enough, service was OK. We got the mythical cellar tour with a friendly Chris (which was quite busy that day but still managed to guide us to the lambic room for us to choose or next and final libation). Taplist was good although some products on there could be priced a little better. Food was more than decent and the mysterious bottle that Chris pulled out to share with everyone was a nice touch. I still don’t know what it was to this time but my guess would be some unknown and rare fruit lambic if it is not "only" a vintage Fou’foune. I’ll most likely be back for some special events and I would most likely be a regular if I was a local but I would not plan my trip around it for now since there is so much other things to see and taste in the area.

We usually hit Ebenezer’s after hiking and I am blown away again and again. Not only is the food generally very good, but the selection of beers is mind-blowing. My very first time there, we had a great lunch with perfect service and pairing recommendations and capped it off by splitting a bottle of Cantillon Iris and embarking on a lengthy tour of the cellar with Chris. Incredible experience. Every time I have been back it has been perfect - terrific tap selection, very chatty and knowledgeable staff, delicious food. World Class, indeed!
