Novare Res – Portland, ME

I grew up with pretty much everyone that works here, but don’t be fooled, this is the best beer bar in Maine, regardless of my predispositions. I am going to the Publick House next weekend, so I will report back on whether or not it is the best in New England. The tap selection is ridiculous, the bottled beer selection? I think they have more than three hundred available at all times. If you join the beer club, it’s about a beer a day for a year, but after that, you basically get half of your beer for free (a plus-sized pewter mug at the same price as the regular sized beers).

I had high hopes for this place when I came in at the 2008 Old Port Fest. It has not disappointed and has since extended its selection to include cheese, charcuterie plates, and sandwiches.

Eric Michaud and the Y-Town all-star cast bring true beer lovers and those who love beer lovers (or are maybe just meeting for the first time; it’s a unique place to take a first date) together in an authentic, old world European atmosphere that has built on the past and carved out its own niche for beer appreciation.

I haven’t yet tried the food.

    Who the hell needs to try the food when you have all the beer in the world to drink?!

    Obviously you need to try the food!

    Only certain foods go good with beer. Like pizza. Other things just don't taste right.

    I can't eat when I'm drinking. Maybe some chips or pretzels, but for sure no solid food.
