Finally decided to stop by for a night in Brunswick on the way to a weekend trip in Portland... all of the positive things I have read about the Lion's Pride couldn't be ignored any longer.

We arrived at around 8:00 on a Thursday. There were several people at the bar and a few tables taken, but otherwise the place was extremely quiet. Thursday is normally Gank the Goblet night, but not tonight. We sat at the bar... very nice place, beer posters and signs all over, a couple of very well-stocked beer fridges, and probably the nicest set up of taps I've ever seen.

The beer selection was awesome... leaning heavily on Belgian beers, of course, but there were some fantastic American offerings, as well as Norway, Germany, etc. I had no problems at all finding 4-5 beers to try over the night; if anything it was hard to decide b/c the tap list was so great. Probably more than 200 in bottles as well. We also shared a couple of appetizers (Belgian frites and some hummus), which were great... I'd love to try some more of the food on another visit.

The service was just as impressive as the selection and environment. Our main server (for some reason, I never got his name) had to be one of the most enthusiastic beer servers I've ever encountered. Very informative and willing to make recommendations, he also gave us a tour of the place afterwards and even gave us each a glass since the Gank the Goblet night had been cancelled (he and his wife, also a bartender there, had just been married that week).

Any complaints about this place would be extremely minor. The TV, which was very close to us, got turned on about 30 minutes into our visit, but I guess I can understand since it was the final game of the NBA playoffs with Boston vs. L.A. There was also a mix-up with the first beer ordered with the two people I was with, where they received the other person's beer and didn't realize it until a couple hours later when they each ordered the OTHER beer... but this stuff does happen, and I know the servers were pretty fantastic overall.

Definitely worth stopping at if you're in the area. Overall, great food and beer, fantastic staff, really nice atmosphere... maybe it gets a lot busier on the weekend, but it was quite quiet on Thursday and therefore very enjoyable.
