This seems more like a biker bar than a craft beer bar, though it seems they cater to all, given the "tower of beer" available for the macro lovers. The decor reports of yesteryear with old photographs of the area. The staff seemed like they were just going through the motions of a job that was keeping them away from other things.

Its definitely a dive bar and not in a good way. Parking is very tight next to the bar. It looks like it was much nicer a decade or two ago. They have a lot of taps but aside from the Allagash taps not a lot of interesting or rare beer. The wings were just this side of edible. The bartender was in the weeds the whole time and seemed confused as to why Iíd want a separate check for beer. Hello Business trip.

Neighborhood institution with a huge taplist, mostly beers from Maine and the Northeast. Definitely a place that goes for breadth over depth. No, they donít have many rare experimental brews, but they do have a lot of stuff you wonít find other places in town, mostly from smaller, less-hip Maine breweries. And the prices are much better than the places downtown. Also has a big food menu with good portions for good prices. Always a fun evening, great place to meet friends!

This place was depressing, itís like where the townies all went to die. It was dead quiet as people drank away their sorrows lonely. The server seemed to busy, and not friendly at all. As a plus they offer flights on their 70 drafts so you can go to tick, but not a place I found very fun.

Dark and gloomy bar to walk into after enjoying a lovely clear spring day around the breweries. The tap selection has a good representation of Maine breweries but much of it can be found around Portlandís beer bars. A lot of pedestrian and easily accessible interstate beers on that list. Service was OK. I guess itís a true local pub but somehow doesnít have much character and kind of souless. It probably didnít help I had an old drunk dude sitting next to me on his sixth can of whatever crap swill he was drinking. Anyway itís worth a look if heading back from the breweries further north.

Very laid back and chill atmosphere. I enjoy sitting in the lounge area which is always busy. The selection of beers is incredible and the food menu is quite large. The service could have been faster but Iím sure that my server just had too many table which happens sometimes. I like the wings and choosing many different beers each time I come back to the GLB.

Another Maine place, Iím about to upload for information purposes. I was once stationed in Maine and hereís my take on this awesome place. Though a tad dark most of the time, Iíve been there, its still a great place to have almost any brew youíre lookiní for from the New England states. Even when its pretty busy, the service is mostly still good. Iíve had a fair amount of somewhat rare beers here, but also somewhat new for the most part. The food is absolutely excellent every time Iíve had it. The value, hmmm...well, it is New England (go figure, not gonna say too much). Overall, thought a tad more pricier than other places, I went there when I could and almost always loved it. Last thing, if youíre not a local, take a taxi, parking leaves more than enough to be desired - it sucks the ratís ass.

This place was really hoppiní on a Friday evening. Went up to the bar, which was rather large and found an empty seat way around the back. Lots of beer on tap, including about 6 Allagash. I only stayed for 1 beer, however, because of the drunk frat assholes sitting next to me at the bar. Loud, obnoxious, drunk. Just bad luck for me, I guess.

This is a great place, wide selection of beer and decent food with reasonable prices. The atmosphere is fun and the crowd is mixed from barely legal age to old farts like me. The bar tenders are good and responsive. Grab a seat at the bar if you can find one. Enjoy!

Good food, especially the buffalo fries and wings. Good need selection and a cool ambiance. Definitely would visit again.
