This place was much better than I had assumed after reading the previous reviews. Maybe they have kicked it up a notch or maybe I am just in a good mood?!?! Anyways, located on front street off of Broad near pickering square in downtown Bangor this location is quite nice next to a little park and an old railway bridge with nice scenery during the foliage. Atmosphere itself is not the best, a bit open and contrived for my liking but with a nice big ole' stuffed moose and some other Mainer-related maritime knick knacks. A few of the tables and windows overlook the P river as well. Nice. Quality of brews was very good with the selection nice as well with about 6 or 7 year rounds 2 hand pumps and 2 or 3 seasonal in rotation. I had pints of the nitro stout and the ipa and both were clean butter, maine/shipyard ringwood goodness. If you like these kinds of brew you will love this place, if not stay away!!! Anyway, service was good and the pints and food was under $25 for 3 beers and one of the best lobster rolls I have ever had (and I have had pleny in much more authentic spots than Bangor, FCS!!!! I was quite suprised and delighted to say the least). A decent atmosphere, good maine styled butter beer, and kick ass lobster. It just begs for repeat visiting if you are a local...but if you are from away at least give this place an afternoon of your time...it just may suprise you...

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.
