America's Best Beer Bars
Great Lost Bear, Portland, ME
A charming, cluttered Portland bar, Great Lost Bear started serving craft microbrews in 1979 when it had just eight taps. As the number of local breweries grew, so did the offerings. Sixty-nine taps now spotlight microbreweries like Marshall Wharf, whose Big Twitch is a sweet, citrusy style of IPA. greatlostbear.com
