Can't believe I never reviewed this place before...

Used to visit quite regularly (this location and the now closed location in Camden) for a pint or two. Had the chance to stop by again during a business trip this week.

There are always 8 taps of their regulars on draft (brown, porter, IPA, golden ale, blueberry ale, apricot wheat, light ale, pale ale) as well as a tap or two of seasonals and an offering or two on cask. Personal favorites are the porter, IPA, the brown and the Winter Stock Ale (seasonal). None of their beers are going to knock you socks off; these are all very "sessionable" beers. No beefy barleywines or imperial stouts. But they are consistent and tasty. This past trip I had the IPA on cask (wonderful) and the Gollywobbler Brown.

I can't say that my service has always been top notch here but on my most recent visit, it was outstanding. She not only was an attentive and prompt waitress, she knew the tap list and what was on cask without having to go check.

Food is always solid. A bit pricey for the fare IMO but not too bad.

Nice deck outside for the warmer months. Lots of wood inside, very "pubby" but spacious.

Not a reason to visit Bangor on its own (ala "The Liberal Cup" in Hallowell) but a must stop if you are in town anyway.

Sat on the outer deck overlooking the Penobscot River. The service staff was right there when needed and able to answer questions pertaining to the brewery. Food was made to order but also very prompt to the table. My wife had sea food which is easy to screw up but her's was done to perfection. I had the Pub Burger which was definitely not from pre-prepared patties. It was cooked as ordered and when they say a slab of bacon on it they aren't kidding. Although they were crowded due to an event in the area we were not rushed at all. Can't wait to get back and sample more of their fine fare and brews. For those interested and not beer fans (leaves more for me) they have a full service bar and wine list.

Funny, for me at least, that I go more for the food and the view than I do the beers. Although they have good beers, as a craft beer enthusiast, I like them just OK. The restaurant/brewery and location are fine and I always enjoy myself there with friends and food and some brews.
