Portland is an awesome city for beer. A couple of Irish pubs have great beer and food. Shipyard is located near downtown. And of course, Gritty's is a Maine mecca for beer.

Sebago just did not impress me. The super polished and shiney bar was nice but seemed to lack character. Was it trying to be a euro nightclub? There wasn't enough pizzazz. Was it trying to be ultra modern? The tables /chairs were out of place. It reminded me of an airport bar.

The beer also was not impressive. If it was the only place in town, i would go there. But as previously mentioned there are so many cool bars in this town. I liked the stout, but the pale ale, brown ale, and IPA lacked flavor. It tasted like my first batch of homebrew where I went light on the extract.

It was quiet, the service was good, and you could easily get a table. Which might be a reason to go here after seeing how crowded the other places get on a Friday or Saturday night. (945 characters)

My wife and I stopped in here for a drink during our 5-year Anniversary trip to Portland. The beers that we tried weren't particularly good. My wife's beer was downright awful. The smell and taste made me nearly gag. The bar looked nice. The setup was kind of basic and simple and it seemed to be more about the food, restaurant than the beer. we drank about 3/4 of our pints and then left. One and done. (404 characters)

Very relaxed vibe, atmospheric lighting, excellent selection of sebago beers as well as some guests. I've yet to try the food but the beer I tried was delicious. And the $3/22 ounce draft special on Wednesday night was a great deal. (232 characters)

Went to Portland, Maine for the first time ever and we decided to eat at Sebago Brewery on Fore Street. The restaurant was split between the bar area and a nice and quiet restaurant section. The quiet atmosphere was definitely appealing since we had our infant with us. Service was attentive, even though we felt far away. I liked the overall pub menu and decided to have the seafood bake, which was decently hearty with good sides of potatoes and peas. The beer was pretty good. I had their Simmer Down Summer Ale and then their Fyre's Leap IPA. The Simmer Down was definitely my favorite of the two. The prices were fair for a restaurant in a downtown location and my wife and I, overall, had a good supper here. (714 characters)
