Came in here a couple nights before going to Eb's Belgian Feast for a few beers. I had a Pannepot Wild, Oxbow Farms Pale Ale (I was told it was the first keg of beer from that brewery anywhere!), and a Stillwater Debutante.
All the beers were fantastic and they had a ton of very solid Belgians on the list. They had quite a few good Belgian bottles as well including Cantillon, Drei Fontinen and Fantome.
There was a live band doing classic rock covers, I chatted with Ryan I believe and he was super friendly and knowledgable, the waitstaff had great recommendations and the bar itself had a ton of cool signs, bottles, etc.
Really this was one of the best bars I've been to period - if you're ever in the area be sure to check it out!

Only 14 taps were pouring when I was there (8/31/13) so the number of selections was not as I had hoped. What was there though was fine, although it was tipped in Allagash's favor on this day (4 taps). I had Alvinne Wild Undressed. Mort Subite White Lambic. Oxbow Original Deluxe.
Service was little slow, but I landed on a day of cooler problems, so this slowed the pours down tremendously. Tim the beeroligist was exceptional though---lots of knowledge and friendly.
I chose a burger for food, with frites. My cohort selected a chicken sandwich. Both were very good. I suspect anything picked food-wise would be good.
Prices were a bit steep (8-9 bucks for the more rare entries, 7-ish for the others). What can you do though? You want good beer. You must pay.
If I were a local this would undoubtedly be my goto place.

I stopped in here last night for supper, I sat near the bar and stared at the tap list for most of the time I was there. 35 taps lots of bottles in a couple of coolers behind the bar. All quality stuff you won't see well almost anywhere else. I had steak tips and also frites to eat and I thought both were done really well and the potato ball thing is different and tasty. The staff was quite attentive to my needs in fact I think all three of them waited on me at one time or another. Great selection service and food. Pricing is a bit on the high side, I think there were only 3 draft lines with pours that were under 9 dollars, and one I paid 14 for. I guess the pricing is keeping in step with the rarity of the selection, just be prepared to drop some coin. I'd gladly go back when in the area.
