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.

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.
