Came in here on Friday 8-30 for the 6th annual Belgian Beer Fest with a few friends. I've wanted to come here for a long time and I'm glad I was able to make it.

First off, I was at the fest and that's the menu I was looking at so I don't know if the prices were normal or higher than normal but this was hands down the most expensive bar I've ever been to. Most of the pours were around $10, some as high as $14. However, the pours were all of an appropriate size and the beers were all amazing. I think that $12 for a glass of beer is expensive, but I can't get Cantillon or Drie Fontenin on tap anywhere else, so it's hard to compare.

I had a Black Albert Batch 0, Cantillon Vigeronne, Cantillon Cuvee des Champions, and I split a bottle of Victor Francenstein. I was blown away by every beer, Chris seemed really nice and our Waitress seemed pretty knowledgeable as well.

This place is very much worth seeking out (I'd say stop if you were close but it's in the middle of nowhere!), just make sure you've got some money. I didn't eat while I was there but the food looked fantastic. Hopefully next time I'm in Maine I'll be able to stop back!

Simply amazing. We had 5 small children with us and we were so very well taken care of given our crew. The beer selection, knowledgeable and friendly staff ( Sir Chris et al), and the location in picturesque Western Maine (on the fringes of the Saco River and the White Mountains) made it surpassingly enjoyable.

Great selection of draft Belgium's you won't find too many places, except maybe in Bruges. Lots to choose from, with the true sour Lambics, IPA's, Dubbels, Tripel’s, Strongs and Saisons, you get the picture. The staff is somewhat knowledgeable, well, much better in past visits. The owners were not on site the day we visited and I think they were short staffed. I went with several friends to have some appetizers and some special beer and take in the Patriots game. It turned out to be a complete sh*t show!

Took at least a half hour to get a drink, by that point everyone was annoyed. The last time at Ebenezer’s we experience very slow service, but chalked it up as being in Maine, “can’t get there from here”. This was the straw that broke the camel’s preverbal back, I will not go back to this establishment unless the owner calls me to tell me he has just tapped a new keg of Black Albert and are not serving it until I arrive. Truly the owners need to hire Jon Taffer from Bar Rescue to straighten this place out. The bathroom looked like an old frat house bathroom I may have visited a few times, doesn’t say much for cleanliness. I always check the bathroom in a bar/restaurant, good indicator of what the kitchen will look like, never ordered food in fear it would arrive the day after.

We received a first beer, slugged it down as if we were playing a good game of quarters and paid the bill and left. As I see it, we would have spent all afternoon there enjoying the fine selection of beers and some food. They lost out on a lot of money, but maybe they don’t really care. Sorry Ebenezer’s, I won’t be back and neither will 12 of my friends. This visit took place on Octover 13th 2013.
