A new primo-beer spot for the ages for me -- and "only" something like 150 miles away... I cannot believe I was in Portland twice before "taking the bait" on this one! The whole experience was fantastic, hands down. Wish I only had another day or more... And I had visited with what could have been some pretty difficult patrons (food-wise). Luckily from the start with the buffalo wings everyone was happy, leaving me to my beer-self to contemplate my own cozy interaction -- me & me beer... So with plenty to choose from and good weather to enjoy I feasted on my beer selections until the others were ready for dessert. I ate a bit then walked around the inside and checked out the bar area and the other rooms (and thinking of ways I could stay around; but alas, I did not "hook up" with anyone in the end and had to make the trip back to Kennebunkport; the only downer -- this time!)

My first exposure to the craft beer scene (many years ago). This place will always be something special for me. Always an interesting tap list, and their sandwiches are awesome!

It was great to finally get in a visit. Funky ass place, great vibe and character. Beer list was impressive and balanced. Service was friendly, knowledgable and prompt. My food was rather disappointing, steak fajita with four huge chunks of very tough 'tips'. But, overall a nice experience and a great spot for a beer geeky couple with three kids in tow.
