Was able to make my first visit to GLB yesterday when Jason and Todd were in town to brew with Allagash. Fellow BA "cjbmcdon" as well as Rob(founder) and Jason (brewmaster) from Allagash were there too.

We were there about mid-afternoon on a Tuesday, so understandably they were not very busy. Right away the bartender gave us all a chance to try Brewers Blackbeard IPA, a Black IPA from the Sierra Nevada Brewers Camp. A great opportunity to try a beer that only a few people will ever get the chance to try. I also gave Peeper Ale from Maine Beer Co. a try and was fairly impressed and look forward to more from them.

The beer selection was pretty solid, with a heavy focus on Maine/ New England Breweries. Jason (from Allagash), pointed out the tap tower that was installed just for Allagash brews, making it possibly the best place in town for Allagash on tap.

Overall, a great experience with a great group of people.

Very laid back and chill atmosphere. I enjoy sitting in the lounge area which is always busy. The selection of beers is incredible and the food menu is quite large. The service could have been faster but I'm sure that my server just had too many table which happens sometimes. I like the wings and choosing many different beers each time I come back to the GLB.
