If you love beer, this is the place. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and passionate about beer, and the atmosphere feels like your favorite English pub.

I love beer and I was totally overwhelmed by their selection. This is truly the hub of micro-pub culture in a very global sense. They have beers from just about every country in the world and the atmosphere is just amazing. Its like an old wine cellar with brick surrounding you and folk art scattering the walls. I wish I...

We stopped by Novare Res for an afternoon craft beer. We tend to stop here every time we are visiting Portland, ME. We sit outside on the picnic tables and have always enjoyed the beer, the service and the prices.

We arrived after dinner looking to try some good, local beer. We sat on the patio and it took a while for us to figure out if the wait staff came to us, or if we were supposed to order at the bar (they eventually came to us). We were hoping for a flight, so that we could try a... More

This is a great place to get together with groups or for just a dinner. We went here for food and drinks on a rainy night and were treated very well. They don't serve food and drink normally outside but sometimes make exceptions. The beer menu is extensive. The food menu is less so but has some good, unique options.... More

I was here with a group of 8 people. We are all beer geeks and we loved it. We did not have food however we did look at the menu. It is limited but if you like an intresting mix then go for it. The beer selection was amazing and the prices seem right.

The title says it all. Oh there was plenty of other beers, but we are true Belgian beer fans, and if u r likewise, just go. From the Mad ?itch, to very Belgian standard, to a bunch of specialty local brewery, Allagash delights, I just can't say enough. Don't open til 4 andwewerewaiting. By 6:00 or so when we left... More

If you love beer, this is a must! They have a huge selection and the staff is super knowledgable. The food is really good, as well. Another thing I love about it is the ambiance. No TVs on the walls. It's a great place to go on a date because there aren't any distractions and you can just focus on... More

Went there twice on back-to-back days. Friends and I really enjoyed the beer varieties and the small plates of cheeses and meats. The outdoor patio is a nice place to find shade on an afternoon. Our servers were constantly available to take drink or food orders. Overall, an excellent way to spend leisure time in the Old Port!!!
