So I finally got a chance to make it up to Lion's Pride for the Vagabond post release party. I've made many trips to Ebanezer's over the years and I had real high expectations for Chris and Jen's new place. It did not dissapoint.
Upon first entering the place I was greated my Chris and immediately felt right at home.
The place is wonderfully decorated with beer related decorations. The hand painted beer signs were amazing. The hand-blown glass taps were gorgous. Plenty of seats in the restaurant and plenty of room to belly up to the actual bar. The staff was accomidating and extremely knowlegable about the beers. Great service!
Great food. I had a excellent burger that was cooked perfectly. The menu seemed pretty simular to the regular menu at Eb's. Nothing real crazy but great pub fare.
The tap list was insane. I had a Pannepot, Vagagond (2oz) and a very tasty Berliner Weiss (with woodriff!). There were many other things (20+ taps) available on including a large Allagash selection. Every possible Belgian bottle that is distributed to Maine was in the fridge waiting to be poured.
What has always set Chris apart is his amazing hospitality. With in 15 minutes of us sitting down he poured every one at my table a taste of both J & J lambics and Cantillion Helana. WTF!
It was a bit expensive for some of the beers. My Pannapoet was 12$. But it was a FULL pour and where are you ever gonna find that on tap? Definately worth it for me.
I have a feeling that this place is only get better with time. Chris filled me in out some tenative plans for a German fest and a Belgian beer fest in the future. Also appearently the ball is rolling on the brewing at the Lion's Pride. It sounds like they are gonna be brewing some pretty wild stuff. I can't wait for that.
Highly recomended if you are anywhere on the east coast of Maine. Another world class beer establishment for Chris and Jen.
