The family and I stopped in here for lunch on the way home from Portland last weekend. There's the bread store where you will spend to much money on bread you just sampled next door. The pretzels are great and Chocolate bread is a real thing and you'll love it. Then there is this small brick oven pizzeria/sandwich shop/pub with a great tap list where you will spend too much money but you'll be smiling about it. So a tap list 20 or so deep and half pours and flights are available if you can't decide. Lots of Maine beer as well as regional and some well thought out national beers. The food is fantastic! I had an incredible pastrami on rye. Our table shared an order of fries with ketchup, sriracha, and horseradish dipping sauces. also great Two of us got pizza and one got buffalo chicken tenders. I sample all and loved what I tasted. My one beef with this place: We were here on a Sunday afternoon and it wasn't horribly busy, several empty tables. We were seated at a table that was waited on by the bartenders rather than a waiter or waitress. When the bar got busy with drink orders we got somewhat ignored. My glass was empty they didn't notice, we wanted to pay the check same thing. The food was superb atmosphere good tap list great I would go back in a heartbeat just give me waitstaff.
Pizza restaurant / bakery / surprisingly brilliant pub. This is a pizza place attached to a pretty well known Maine bakery, and they’ve done a truly fantastic job with their tap list. Over a few trips I’ve found strong offerings from breweries from all around the USA, plus great Belgian, Danish, and Japanese breweries. Whoever buys there kegs really knows what they’re doing! On top of it, the food is great and there’s a strong wine and spirits list. The beer can be pricey (at least by Maine standards), but worth it to try some amazing stuff.
When I lived in Maine, my wife and I used to love to take trips to Portsmouth and if we didn’t stop at the Portsmouth brewpub, we’d stop here on the way back to the Portland area. This is well worth the check in to go here. The service was always wonderful every time we went. The food is absolutely excellent. The beers are always more than adequate. Last but not least don’t pass up on their brick oven pizza. Great place that makes me miss New England.
Great little place on US 1. Excellent beer selection. 20+ taps, all high end craft beer. Food, although limited, was outstanding. We had a brick oven pizza that was to die for. It is primarily a pizzeria. Waitress was as attentive as anywhere. There is a side shop where they sell their fresh baked breads, also delicious. On the down side, a bit noisy with concrete floors and high ceilings & the background music was a bit loud.
Another fantastic place on the Maine coast. Great beer selection on tap, with half pours offered for 2.50 to 3.50$, nice selection and excellent foods ()pizza, figgy pigs, beet salad, potato wedges, and Italian grinders). Excellent and Friendly service. Modern decor with high ceilings. Great bread store next door.
Just north of the kittery outlet shopping area on rt 1. Very good draft list with all kinds of interesting offerings, provide small pours presented in a wooden holder to allow for a variety. Bar also made some pretty good looking cocktails served in mason jars that looked outstanding. Pizza was in fact surprisingly tasty and innovative. Only downside seems that even in the heart of summer they close up shop at about 9pm, don’t know if this was just because I was in on a Monday? Good stop on a drive up or down the Maine coast..
Great family restaurant with really good tap list... Evil Twin, Sixpoint, Oxbow, Allagash, Marshall Wharf and a few nice classic Belgians. Great food menu for foodies and fussy families... wood fired pizza, house cured meats, local ingredients and a nice modern rustic decor that is clean and roomy. I also liked that they offered half pours for $2-4 each depending on the beer and the waitress was prompt and friendly. Great Place, Great Beer !
The best selection in Southern ME /Portsmouth, NH. 22 craft taps that included locals, Belgian and National craft brews. Also have craft wine on draught. They have a build your own sampler of up to 7 samples in an 8 oz glass. A small but strong bottle list that included, Jolley Pumpkin, White Birch, Brooklyn brewery, Allagash and Six point. Food selections are a small; but solid menu. We had a brick over pizza that was absolutely delicious. This place was real busy on a Saturday night but worth the wait. A real hidden gem. I almost didn’t want to rate it because I don’t want more people learning about how great this place really is.
