I've been a huge fan of the PRT since day one! Only place around this area with a beer selection like that.

Atmosphere is very chill. Nice juke box, darts, pool table, TVS, great bartenders. What else do you need? I love that they have Oaked Arrogant Bastard on tap. Aisha the bartender and bar manager is one of the best in town, always rotating their taps. Owner is usually on premise, which you don't see often these days.

Great selection at all times with great seasonals. Plus their food is delicious. Panko chicken tenders! I always send people their way. Deffinatly worth the visit. Cheers

This is actually a brewpub as they are brewing a small number of beers in british tradition there, such as the very good ESB i had first of all. Great pub to spend dollars on varied microbrew lineup on tap, plus unique British style pub menu. Could have had Quebec traditional poutine or shepherd's pie kinds of UK pub dishes, but opted for the amazing, huge meatloaf sandwich on Texas toast and smashed potatoes topped by onion gravy. Very tasty, if not healthy. Bartender was quite humorous and entertaining during my session there, and his description of the meatloaf was too enticing for me. Lively friendly mix of local regulars and visitors such as me lined the bar. Lots of talk re Sandy storm and whose power is still out. Finished evening with a Founders porter and a Shipyard smashed pumpkin, superb brews! Mainly doing this review to get the word out that brewing of good quality is happening there.

My wife researched and brought me here this past weekend for my first Father's Day. It was supposed to be a quick stop for one beer, but we ended up staying a little longer.

Doesn't look like much from the outside, but it's a worth while pit stop. They had a nice little selection of beers on draft. Stone IPA, Stone Arrogant Bastard, DFH Festina Peche, Peak Organic Summer Session among others. Nice to see something other than the standard Shipyard & Geary's! I had a Stone IPA which tasted very fresh. Bursting with hop flavor. I was supposed to be saving my appetite for our dinner reservations, but we couldn't resist ordering some wings & steamers. They have a special wing menu with a dozen or so variations including curry wings, ginger wings, as well as standard buffalo & bleu cheese. The steamers were only $7, and you get a generous amount.

You won't find much beyond domestic macros in bottles, and I was a little disappointed to get my IPA in a pint glass, but I'm sure they would have served it in a snifter or red wine glass had I requested it. The bartender was extremely nice, and went out of his way to make sure we were taken care of.

Mostly locals in this watering hole, and it's nothing fancy, but I'd definitely recommend stopping in. Nice guys, good beers, straight forward, no frills, no nonsense!

Stopped in here on a recent trip and was pleasantly surprised by the better than average beer selection. Nice change of pace if your tired of drinking Shipyard or the rest of the Maine brews. They have about 15 taps with Allagash White, Dogfish 60, Maudite, Oaked Bastard, amoungst others. Bartender a little slow but he was friendly. Talked to the owner or manager and he was knowledgable and passionate about the beers they had. Good spot if you want to hang out and watch the game or play a game of pool or darts. Jukebox in the corner also with a nice mix of tunes. Didn't have the food but they had the traditional pub fare with a mix of Maine seafood specialties.

Located on Route 1 between York and Wells, this place is nothing to look at from the outside. It used to be a Chinese restaurant, and the exterior just screams strip mall. There's parking in the front and in the rear. As you enter, the bar is directly ahead, and seats about 15. There's about 20 tables off to the right. On the left is an alcove with 3 tables, and in the back left is a pool table and dart board. There are 3 TVs in the bar area. The interior is decorated with beer memorabilia and soccer shirts. It's nicer appearing and more inviting than the outside, but still has a dark, pre-fab look.
Fortunately, the beer and food more than make up for the ambience. 15 taps, and while there are the usual macros, there's also DFH 60 and 90 Minute IPA, Smuttnose Shoals Pale, Ale Rogue Arrogant Bastard, Anchor Steam, Unibroue Maudite, Victory Prima Pils, and Paulaner Hefeweiss. The owner likes to rotate the taps, so selections may vary. There are over 20 bottled beers, again some macros (more in bottles than on tap), but also Sebago, Shipyard, Sam, and some German beers.
The food is a cut above typical pub fare. I've had fish and chips and a meatloaf, both excellent. There's also a bar menu with things like $1 hot dogs, $2 sliders, wings for 25 cents each, etc.
Service is good; better at the bar than at the tables.
Have been here several times, and have always enjoyed myself. Give it a try.
