We ordered lunch and beer. I had a liter of the fest bier that was fine. Others in the party ordered different beers that were supposed to be 12 or 16 oz according to their beer menu. They all came in the same size 12 oz glasses. When I pointed this out to the waiter he said I was wrong in an extremely rude manor. I showed him how 3 of their "16" oz glasses filled with water just filled my empty liter mug. He then asked me if I knew how many ozs were in a liter which I did. He had no reply when I told him about 36 fl oz constitutes a liter. This math wiz then explains to me that 3 16oz glasses should just fill a liter and too bad if I didn't like it. To top it off this little punk was wearing a Coors t shirt!

I'll never go back there even though the food and beer were acceptable. You only get 1 chance to make a first impression. If I had been with some of my regular beer drinking friends I would have asked for the manager and made a point. I didn't feel like doing this with some relatives I rarely see.

Too bad but they rip you off there.

a really cool place right in downtown Portland. didn't even know this was here, just sort of stumbled up. large place with a neatly configured bar with the brewhouse right behind it. close to empty when we rocked up just past 11am. only a small handful of beers on tap, but the ones we drank were fantastic. the sorachi rice is to die for, one of the best displays of sorachi hops ive had to date, and the sour was fun as well. bartender was a little arrogant and all, but we just ignored him. we didn't eat, but the food looked nice as well. they distill spirits here too, which people seemed to be enjoying when the place filled up a bit. a good stop for lunch or something, and ill bet it gets happening at night time too. worth visiting just for the sorachi rice session ipa.

Been to In'finiti a few times now. Nice interior with the distillation equipment right as you walk in the door then a long bar with tables and the brewing equipment behind the bar. Kitchen is toward the back and open to the restaurant. A bit dark inside for my taste but the deck out on the water is great.

House made beer is good but not great. The descriptions on the menu all sound great but the product doesn't quite match as I have found most of the beers to be lacking flavor even the DIPA. Prices for the house made beers are fair. Guest taps are all Maine brewed for the most part however nothing you can't get at many other bars within a few block radius. Prices for the guest beers are higher then average.

Food is good but portions are quite small and prices are high. I don't mind high prices as long as I don't shell out a bunch of money and then leave hungry.

Service at the bar is quite good. Table service can be hit or miss as some of the servers seem more interested in chatting by the kitchen rather then taking orders or delivering drinks.

Crowd is quite diverse with local hipsters mixed in with lawyers from the firm next door mixed in with tourists from out of state.

Overall a solid and unique but not spectacular addition to the Portland beer scene. I am hoping their beers will improve in the future. A good place to go for after work beers or drinks on the deck in the summer.
