    Great beer selection and a quieter scene than the rest of the old port. You can talk without having to yell.

    Perhaps the best beer bar in Maine (which says a lot!). Tap-list is unreal - so well balanced between quality locals and obscure, though well curated, imports.

    Bartenders are fabulous! Have them pour you something you've never tried before.

    Nice beer selection (quite a few Dogfish Head brews, too) and a nice vibe.

    Cool underground location. Outdoor seating of it's warm enough. Nice, friendly, and knowledgeable staff.

    This is one of the few bars in Portland where I recommend NOT trying a local beer but instead learning about some of the amazing ones they have from around the world.

    One of the few, select American bars that has bottles of Cantillon frequently available to the public. Pricey but incredible.

    Interesting crowd and knowledgable bartenders. Cellar like inside but large space. Impressive Belgian Beer/Local selection with appropriate glassware. Bites- cheeses, wild boar salami, lobster roll

    Directions to Novare: Fly to the Portland (PWM). Get a taxi. Enjoy a big beer or two. Big = 22 oz+, 9%+. Best in Portland, 2nd best in Maine. Best is Ebenezer's Pub Lovell, Maine.

    The quintessential beer bar in downtown Portland. Bottle list is off the hook, but check out the taps first. Outdoor deck during the summer is where to be!
