Great rotating selection of drafts. The bottle selection is also quite good and reasonably priced. If you like Sours they have a good selection. If you want to go to a place with beers you haven't heard of before this is your place. An appetizer consists of cheese, crackers or nuts so if you are looking for onion rings this might not be your place. If you are content with looking at a foreign beer menu but aren't looking for a real meal come here.

I have visited Nocturnem Draft Haus twice now and wish only that I had discovered it earlier in the school semester. As a college student at University of Maine price can be a big issue when deciding where to go. Nocturnem is a bit more expensive then some of my other frequents, but I've given the establishment a "$$-reasonable" rating because there is no place you will get to try multiples of the awesome selection of craft beer they offer for the same price.

The atmosphere is great although it might get a little cramped on a busy night on account of the bar positioning.

Each time I have been in I have had a knowledgeable server/bartender which is probably the number one reason I will return again and again. Some of the staff are quirky and may put-off a certain crowd, but I have found it pretty enjoyable - just buy into it! In general I have found their bark to be much harder than their bite.

Selection is incredible & of the best Bangor area has to offer! 14 Rotating taps and generally a choice of one cask and one lambic on tap. To take advantage of the tap selection I suggest visiting on a Monday night as it is 'flight night'. There is a seemingly endless list of bottles to accompany the taps.

I haven't had their food but I hear the soft pretzel is more than worth trying!

Great little place. Second stop today. By far the better of the 2. Great atmosphere. 14 Taps. Boston game on and only one customer cheering them on. Might not be your first choice for sports. Very happy with the sollection. Did not try the food. They do have many local beers to choose from.

Stopped by on a Saturday afternoon. Loved it.
Two long, narrow rooms. You enter the bar area. The bar seats around twelve. Some high tops up front and along the side. The other room has regular tables, a sofa and chairs. It looks like the bands perform in that room. Brick walls, tin ceiling, beer memorabilia on the walls. A nice, comforable place.
Fourteen beers on tap, additionally a cask selection and a lambic. Eclectic tap selections, with frequent rotations. Around one hundred bottles. My wife had a Green Flash West Coast IPA, and I had Stone RIS espresso. Excellent.
We both has a veggie burger, good but not great.
Service was excellent.
When in Bangor, make sure you visit this place!

Nocturnem is an amazing drafthaus. This place has the best beer selection in Bangor hands down. They are constantly rotating the taps, and there is always something for every beer taste. The tap takeovers are a lot of fun, and flight night on Mondays is a great way to try all the beers. This place is a haven for beer lovers! The staff is very helpful, and makes great recommendations. The music room is wonderful too. I haven't tried the food yet, but plan to next time. I'm so glad this bar exists in Bangor!
