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!
