The Greatest beer bar in the world, just miles from where I grew up...

Doesn't look like a world class beer bar does it...
OK, so maybe most (or at least a lot of) hard core beer geeks have at least heard of Ebenezer's Pub in the little town of Lovell, Maine, but I am guessing most of you have not. What almost all of you may not know however, is that small little town of Lovell (population under 1000) is the childhood home of your's truly, the Beer Czar. I saw this article posted on Facebook by a friend that grew up in the next town over, and wanted to share it with you. This write up sort of reads like a smut novel for beer geeks. Check out Eb's website for a true list of beer lover porn!

Inside at the bar
The place is amazing, and has gotten some well deserved world wide recognition. So, if any of my readers from Northern New England are looking for a nice day trip destination for a few (hundred) awesome beers, or if my west coast readers are looking for a great beer-cation destination, I strongly recommend a trip to my home town (the state of Maine has an exciting, exploding beer culture as well, so this should be just one of many stops while in the Pine Tree state).

My dad's old church

I grew up, for the first 7 or so years I lived in Lovell, just a few miles passed the pub up route 5. My dad was the pastor of the large, beautiful church you will see if you make it up that way. Later, we moved to a large old farm house just outside the village (not far from the store front that burned down mentioned in the article). It was a great little place to grow, and its kind of fun to see it getting some national press. Until this pub opened, all we really had to brag about was being the summer home of author Stephen King, and as many local will also tell you, the lake in town, Kezar Lake, was once voted (back in the mid 70's) as one of the most beautiful lakes in the world.
So, check out the article, and if you get a chance, check out Lovell, and Ebanezer's Pub. It will be worth the trip, no matter how far you travel!
