I counted roughly 51 taps, including the 3 casks and a cider. The beer menu breaks it all out for you by beer type which makes for easy reading. Currently, roughly 30 are from Maine breweries, and about another dozen and a half hail from the other New England states. That means the beer's pretty damn fresh.
They have specials nights (Mondays & Tuesdays are "short beer nights", where they serve jumbo drafts at pint prices and then there's the Thursday Showcase where they feature a specific brewery @ $1.99 a pint). You can do a taster paddle or a beer tower, they've got a weekly draft special, it's a beautiful thing.
Service was good and the place was nicely comfortable. They have dining areas along the perimeters with pleasant collectibles posters throughtout. If there's a better beerbar up North I ain't heard about it.

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.
