One Girls Crazy Outlook on life in Southern Maine

In December 2010 I moved to Southern Maine from a small town next to Bangor (Bangor is right in the center Maine and is one of the largest cities in Maine for those of you wondering if it's in Canada). Here are some crazy stories of outings, hikes, beer and just the general mayhem that is my life. Welcome. Enjoy. Love it.

Sebago Brewing Company

Location #1: Portland - in the Old Port
164 Middle Street 04101

Price: $

Sebago Brewing Company is one of those great bars that serves food until one o'clock in the morning. This is good for people who get drunk and then get hungry. My boyfriend and I have been here many times.
When you walk into the Old Port location of Sebago Brewing company, you have to take your immediate left. You then have the option to go right down over the stairs, or straight to the upstairs bar. The down stairs is ideal for dinning and for large groups of people. Late at night, when we are usually there (between 11:30 pm and 1:00 am) the downstairs dinning room is closed. We usually sit at the bar because that is where we can usually get the best service. The bar tenders don't waste any time once you sit down. We can usually sit down and have our drinks and food ordered (if you know what you want, which we usually do) within the first ten minutes of us being there. Depending how hungry you are, you can always munch on the publicly handled pretzels that are sitting in front of you in the glad cup. Just keep in mind that you aren't the only person to have touched these or breathed on these pretzels, which is why I don't eat them. Plus I work in health care.

When we go we always get the sweet potato fries. They come in a tall wire basket type holder and are incredibly crispy. They have wonderful flavoring that is complimented by a mayo type sauce. The mayo is excellent, if you like mayo.

We also get the Buffalo Wings.
Now, just a little side note. We are buffalo wing FANATIC! If we could afford it, and actually spent any amount of time in a gym, then we would probably eat buffalo wings every single day. However, they can't just be a buffalo wing. We aren't going to go to a restaurant and just buy a plan Jane "mild" buffalo wing, no, Might as well eat regular chicken if we are going to do that. We like it HOTT.
unfortunately the wings at Sebago don't live up to our wing expectations, but they are good.
Let me explain:
For starters, they don't meet the "hott" level requirements that we like, But they aren't "mild" either. In fact, any "buffalo wing virgin" would probably rate them as "hott."
also, they are served in a full wing;

We like our chicken wings separated into smaller manageable pieces;

All in all though, the wings are decent, or as decent as brewery wings can be!

Sebago Brewing Company is great because it is a group of both young and old people. It isn't your typical bar where there are just twenty one year old running around in their little provocative get ups. This is a real, low key, bar where on any given night you will see an old man sitting at the end of the bar reading a news paper and drinking a beer.

The second Location to this restaurant is:
Scarborough - at the Maine Mall
201 Southborough Drive 04074

This location is in a brand new building that just opened in the Summer 2010.
They have the exact same menu as the original place in Old Port.

Sebego Brewing Company also brews it's own beers. They have a type for every single beer drinker out there.

Despite the fact that Sebago mostly centers it's drinking around beers, my favorite drink of  all time is called:
Now, I cannot tell you what the ingredients are, because well, I don't know them. But I can tell you that whatever this concoction has in it... makes it the most epic drink I have ever had. With Money, time, and a DD, I could suck these drinks down all day without even knowing I was drinking alcohol. Well, until I started acting inappropriate and saying things that I would never say sober...This drink is pink and delicious. Now, if you haven't figured it out already, it tastes JUST like starburst candy... it is epic. The tropical skittle also gets Honorable mention!

If you are ever in the Old Port area or in the Mall area, I would recommend both of these places. For more of the "bar scene" I would recommend the Old Port Location. However, if you are just going for a nice dinner with friends or family, than the Scarborough location would be perfect for you.
