Used to live in Bangor, so when I recently visited I had to stop by the new beer joint. Very impressed. This place was great. There is outdoor seating in the back, a huge bar when you first enter the front, and a second room of seating directly opposite the bar. I went on a Saturday night and there was a little jam band rocking out all night, which was pretty cool. They have a dozen or so rotating taps, and while I was there they were in the midst of a "Sour Celebration", so there were plenty of unique and rare BAs and other Sours to choose from. On top of that, there is a bottle list that is easily 100+. The staff was extremely knowledgable and friendly, as well as prompt, which can be completely missed on Saturday nights. I didn't try the food, but one of the people in my party got a couple of appetizers and were very pleased. All in all, I would recommend hitting this place up if you find yourself in Bangor. I know I will be making a return trip!

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!
