I finally had a chance to check out this place on a recent trip to Portland for the Gargamel release. I had high hopes for this place as I knew Eric the owner from his Moan and Dove days. It exceeded all my expections.

First off the location is near perfect. Right in the middle of downtown Portland in the middle of all the action. Perfect scores for atomsphere. Tons of beer decarations. Gorgous wood panneling on the bar and classic tables and furnature. Appearently this was all hand made by Eric and his family. The best looking bar I have been to in a long time.

Great tap and bottle list. We were there for Belgian weeks so the taps were mostly Belgian. I had a Mad Bitch. My buddy had a Cantillon Iris. There were about 15-20 taps and all were high quality.

The service was great. I ran into Eric at Allagash earlier in the day and he offered to call his staff have and have them open an hour early just so we could check the place out and avoid a later drive to Boston. The staff was great. Quick to talk about beer and very knowlegable too. I liked the fact that they were doing a mug club there just like the Moan and Dove.

The food was OK.. One of my friends ordered a small meat plate which looked good. I didn't come here for the food however.

Overall I would highly reccomend this place. I plan on going back again soon. I would be a regular here if I lived aroud here. I wish I could have stayed for more than one beer.
