Managed to sneak out to Ebenezer's with my Brother-In-Law and my wife's Stepdad (our DD) last summer while we were vacationing in the area with our families. Once we found the place (no small task, man is it in the middle of nowhere!) we basically had the place to ourselves other than maybe one table having lunch on the deck. The bartender (Maryanne maybe?) was very friendly and helpful and was able to answer most of our questions. She said we really knew our stuff, and its a shame the owner wasn't there, or we could have talked shop and gotten "the tour".

We sampled a bunch of sours and tripels over the afternoon, and also enjoyed several orders of Frites, which were awesome. I really enjoyed the Petrus Aged Pale Ale and was happy to find a stash of it at the local beer store back home (go New England Wine and Spirits, Newburyport, MA!), and have been enjoying it regularly since.

We had a great afternoon, and even though we dropped a good chunk, we knew what we were in for going in -- quality beers that are hard to find anywhere and great pub food -- not to mention the fact that we all got T-Shirts to commemorate our visit.

I hope I can get back up there soon, but its a bit of a hike from here. If only Eb's was closer to the MA/NH/ME border, or opened a sister spot in Portsmouth we'd be all set. Cheers!

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.
