First of all this place is truly exceptional, in every sense of the word. I'm not sure why it has taken me so long to review it (laziness!). Ebenezer's is located in a great spot, right near Kezar Lake in Lovell, ME. Yes, it is off the beaten path but I believe that is one of the aspects about the place that makes it so enticing. When you finally arrive for the first time it's like you have found some sort of secret club that is too good to be true.
There is a screened in porch area that is available for dining in the summer, however the bar is the main attraction. The taps always feature great Belgian options like Val-Dieu, Delirium, St. Bernardus, etc. One of the only places I have seen a green lambic! Only the best from domestic brewers as well, Ommegang, Dogfish Head, Allagash and others in rotation. There seems to always be some vintage of Bigfoot on draft as well.
The cooler behind the bar is just overflowing with goodies. This has to be one of the finest bottle selections in the country. Not only great beers, but different vintages, rarities, and sizes ranging from small to enormous. 9 L St. Feuillien anyone? The menu really only scratches the surface of what is available, so definitely ask what is available.
All this being said, I believe what really sets Ebenezer's apart is the service. Chris and co. are just great hosts with a great passion for what they do. If you want to learn more about beer and sample some of the great examples of various styles, this would be a great place to spend some time. It's worth seeking out!
