Well, I hate to be a bandwagon jumper here, but damn, Ebenezer's is awesome. Stopped by on a Monday night in early June, which ended up being good timing since this place apparently gets packed during peak season. This place really is in the middle of nowhere. It's on the edge of a golf course outside a tiny town in the lake region of Maine. If you haven't been to this area, it's worth it even without Ebenezer's. Ebenezer's, though, can be a beer experience unlike any other.

Make sure to get in touch with Chris before you go, and also make sure they won't be closed. Chris is about as interesting of a guy as you'll meet in the beer world. He's got all kinds of stories and opinions about beer and everything else. He's also extremely generous - he shared several awesome and rare beers with my fiance and me free of charge. We sat around for awhile after they closed just shooting the shit and drinking excellent beer. We also got to take a look at his cellar, which is absolutely mind-blowing.

Besides the "VIP treatment" however, the standard tap and bottle selections are excellent. Prices can seem a little high, but they're really not when you consider what you're getting. I had a Pannepot Wild, a Brooklyn Dark Matter, a Cantillon Vigneronne, and a couple others. Like Chris himself said, it may not be the absolute rarest draft list in the world, but if you can't find enough amazing beers to drink here, you need to check yourself into the mental institution. I got the impression that if super-rare is what you're looking for, Chris can definitely hook you up. In general though, it seems that he's not trying to cater to the "ticker" crowd.

Finally, the food is awesome. The lobster roll was one of the best I had in Maine, the Ruger burger, fries, and calamari special were all excellent. Chris also gave us a cheese and beer pairing that was incredible.

At best, Ebenezer's is going to be flat-out one of the greatest beer experiences you've ever had. At worst, you're going to sit in a bar in one of the most scenic parts of the country, eat great food, and drink world class beer. If that doesn't do it for you, just admit it, guy: you probably don't like beer.
