Made another visit today and had a much better experience so I decided to re-review. Will leave my old review simply for reference.
My brother and his friend joined me after work today for a trip over. Late afternoon, in between dinner and lunch presented us with a relatively empty dining area. We were quickly seated and given plenty of time to peruse through the selection, which as always, was amazing. We all had burgers, and even though it can be hard to say much about the quality of found based on burgers, we were all more than just satisfied.
Following the meal we were allowed to sit and enjoy our drinks as the waitress could tell that we came to drink good beer. Eventually she asked us if we would want to go into the cellar with Chris, which we obviously said yes to. Down there we had a great conversation with him and came out with a great sampling.
Overall, I find this place to be a bit odd with it's location and atmosphere. Many people walk in there without realizing what they are getting into, so it's not as beer-geek centric as you would expect. However, with the beer-geeks that do show up, they seem more than willing to share and talk with you about beer all day long.
Was living relatively nearby in Pinkham Notch for the summer and finally had the chance to make it over.
Ebenezer's is a great place, no doubt about it, but it wasn't quite what I expected. The beer selection was amazing, and thats what really matters, but bad timing on my part led to a less than ideal visit.
First, a large party of what appeared to be members of the country club, was occupying almost the whole restaurant and all the wait staff, which wasn't very welcoming for other visitors. Additionally, it being a sunny summer weekend afternoon in the White Mountains, I should have known there would have been a lot of bikers. So, while the first large party cleared out, the restaurant was quickly filled again with a bunch of old biker guys and their wives and their Michelob Ultras. Again, not very welcoming for anyone else.
Overall, I'd give the place another try, and hopefully have better timing.
