um..... $1 lookie, $2 feelie, $3 dewey. I just wanted to get that out of the way. Okay, listen up, it's not the GLB, not on a good day, but nothing up there is and it is very conveniently located in the Old Port section of Portland and that's a big plus if you've just done lunch at Gritty's or Sebago and you're looking to stumble down the street for a beerbar to have a few in or if you're just mulling around the Old Port area for the day.
The food is good. Standard pub fare for the most part, but good. And I've never had a problem with the service.
Big popcorn machine = woof a basket or two. It's free and it's sustenance. Thye've got big windows that look out towards the water but it's still kind of dim in there, curious.
About 3 dozen taps, a decent mix of Maine and New England beers and English beers and macros. They've also got an adequate bottled beer list. Look, they've got no casks and it's quite likely that you are not going to find the beer that you've been hunting, hoping and praying to find on tap but you can get a decent brew here. Part of my yearly ritual here is a black & blue or two. Big wooden tables,... It's a comfortable joint, I've got no complaints.

Been here a couple times and last night made another visit prior to dinner. This may be more of a commentary of my expectations of the high quality of certain craft beer bars, but this place is just pedestrian. While they have about 20+ beers on tap, the list is so basic and boring it’s scary. Allagash White and a few Shipyard basics is about as crazy as this place gets. I suppose if you’re from Nebraska and never had any Shipyard or Harpoon it might be worth a session… But other than that this place is barely above a standard bar.

The server clearly didn‘t know a great deal about craft beer and basically was parroting what they were told for the daily special.

Atmosphere is fine, but nothing too creative. It appears that long ago this was a craft destination, but frankly they haven’t kept up. When in town there are many other options that are more intriguing.
