I was thoroughly unimpressed with The Lion’s Pride. The location is essentially a strip mall, and the decor some random Belgian beer paintings and breweriana. The beer selection is good but not great, nor anything not available regionally. The food was good but not cooked entirely to order (burger was medium-well not medium, for instance). Our server did not know anything about the beer, and I had to point out the Oerbier Reserva for her in the fridge following the "what beer is that" question.
Not to far off from 295 so easy stop if you are driving through Maine. Easy parking... Ambiance is just ok... Some cool hand made art work (beer labels). Selection is really good... 40 taps? Hundreds of bottles from all style and sizes. Little on the pricey side. I had the wings as an app... solid. Burger for dinner, slightly above average... Food wasnt anything to brag about. Overall enjoyable place. You probably wont find a better selection in the area so that makes it worth the stop.
Good sized restaurant/bar. The tap wall is amazing with the glass blown handles. The staff was very friendly. I came in later at night and had some wings off the late night menu. They were your average good wings. A good place with a lot of beer selection.
What a disappointment! We were really expecting something special based on the ratings. First of all, the server on duty knew virtually nothing about beer. Secondly, they did not even have a list of their offerings in bottles. And the draft offerings lacked both interest and balance. The ambiance was also definitely lacking. The most overrated place we have ever visited!
Quick drive outside of Portland, a beautiful one at that. Unassuming building, awesome vintage decor everywhere. Friday lunch crowd, but stunningly only had one server, leading to chaotic running around and slow service, but the guy was knowledgeable and personable. Great draft list with the ability to get half pours, but no bottles. I was told not to worry, check out Ebenezer’s and you’ll see more bottles than you know what to do with. Draft list was really solid, great local area beers along with lots of rare Euro’s. Regular bar far, plain but decent.
Cool place to visit, go here over Ebenzer’s 10 out of 10 times. Solid place.
A cool bar for a small town in Maine. A great Belgian and foreign selection plus some random American beers. The service was really good and they knew their stuff. Didn’t have any food, as I was full from Red’s Eats in Wiscassett, ME (Highly recommended, best lobster roll I’ve had, no joke). Not a bad price for the selection. Definitely worth stopping in if you’re in the area.
As expected from Chris, Jenn, and the folks at Eb’s, this is an amazing spot. 36 draft lines of incredible beers; I sampled de Glazen Toren Saison d’Erpe Mere, Oxbow Loretta grisette, and B. Nektar Zombie Killer cyser. Didn’t have the food, but having been to Ebenezer’s several times I can only imagine it’s really solid pub grub. Awesome ambiance, a combination of classic old-school Belgian-style beer bar and American pub. A must visit if you’re anywhere close to Brunswick.
What a wonder full place. This most likeyly used to be a famlily restaurant or pub, with a nice verriere, which became a haven of high quality beer, from the folk at Ebenezer’s. A beautiful and exquisitely chosen tap selection is available, with half portions available for raters. Yje food there is also quite good with huge portions. My sister loved her fish and chips. A brewery will eventually be opened there and is already visible from the pub. A must in Maine.
Such a good beer bar. Great tap selection, Lots of bottles on hand.
Food was Excellent, I would come here for the Fries anyday.
Staff is extremely knowledgable and always happy to answer questions and help you find your next Beer.
Give it a Try, It’s worth it.
Fun beer list. Buncha neat new beers on the menu. Tight laid back atmosphere old belgian beer bar ambiance. Helpful staff. Kinda werid location on an ugly street surrounded by chain restaurants. But the inside is a beer sanctuary.
I stopped in here last night for supper, I sat near the bar and stared at the tap list for most of the time I was there. 35 taps lots of bottles in a couple of coolers behind the bar. All quality stuff you won’t see well almost anywhere else. I had steak tips and also frites to eat and I thought both were done really well and the potato ball thing is different and tasty. The staff was quite attentive to my needs in fact I think all three of them waited on me at one time or another. Great selection service and food. Pricing is a bit on the high side, I think there were only 3 draft lines with pours that were under 9 dollars, and one I paid 14 for. I guess the pricing is keeping in step with the rarity of the selection, just be prepared to drop some coin. I’d gladly go back when in the area.
