I have read good things about this spot on a number of websites and paper publications, and wanted to see for myself. Having just returned from a trip in Germany & Hungary I was keen to try the European style beer and food. I was not disappointed. I had the knockwurst & Kraut, and it was excellent. I enjoy this...

Stopped in at Nocturnem in Bangor on our way to Bar Harbor. What a great find, thanks to other Tripadvisor reviews. Small place, looks like a dive from the outside to be honest. For a beer enthusiast like myself, this was a great spot to get some good craft beer from Maine and afar. The food was surprisingly well also,... More

Stopped in on Saturday afternoon for late lunch/early dinner. Charcuterie and cheese board excellent. The house burger (caramelized onions with Chimay) and burger with blue and bacon were both delicious and served medium rare as requested. Side salad was fresh and nicely dressed.

This place was recommended by a fellow beer lover in Maine and he did not steer us wrong. The beer selection was outstanding! There aren't many tables, but it wasn't particularly crowded at the hour we visited. I could see it being shoulder-to-shoulder on a Friday or Saturday night since it appeared that lots of locals head here. Our server... More

Terrific and exhaustive beer menu. Our server was friendly and very knowledgable. She asked us what we were looking for, and made some great picks. The food menu is small, but everything was well prepared and we had a nice dinner. One minor fault, was that the place was understaffed and lacked a hostess. Had there been someone to give... More

But really need more food choices -- the appetizer-type plates are good, but it's tough to go here for drinks/dinner because there is simply not enough choice for food on the menu. That said, the beer doesn't get any better than this!!!

...and local places and I got both! Go for drinks and not for food. Not much seating and the food is soso. It is a really fun and lively place with fun all around... might be the beer but what the hell, beer is good!

If you're in Bangor and looking for good beer and decent food, this is the place to go. Beer selection seems to vary day-by-day, but they seem to have a good rotation in place. We'd definitely go back the next time we're in Bangor. When we visited, they had a wide range of eclectic beers on tap (over a dozen),... More

Great beer list. Fun bartenders with great recommendations. This bar would be a great addition to any American town.

we arrived in Bangor the night of water front concerts. Downtown was very busy and it was raining. We had heard of Nocturnem and thought to try it out. If you love beer and want to sample beer this is the place you must go to. They had a limited menu and very limited dining tables. Ordering food requiring plates... More
