After reading JohnnyP's review and hearing about his stunt with the webcam, I had to stop by here. It was everything I thought it would be. A mind numbing selection of beers on tap. Everything you could imagine, especially several hard to find New England and Maine beers. We had a couple samplers, called my buddies back in Florida to spot us on the webcam. Some highlights were the Allagash White, Magic Hat # 9, Magic Hat Blind Faith and special ginger beer that I can't remember the name of. Anyway, the Great Lost Bear is worth the trip. Every beer advocate should stop here if they are in the area. (604 characters)

This place is awesome! Cool digs, very comfortable, great atmosphere, excellent service, amazing beer selection, REALLY good food - everything. Now, I'm normally a brewpub guy, but I'd much rather stop at the Bear when I'm in Maine. Kudos! Do not miss! (252 characters)
