Like many small cities Bangor, Maine was left with few choices for quality beer. There were plenty of sports bars and bars that cater to the college crowd but no quality beer bars. That all changes when Gene Beck decided to open Nocturnem Draft Haus. They have 14 rotating taps and usually have something on cask as well. The food is typical pub style but everything I have ordered has been very well done.
If you are looking for craft beer in Bangor this is the place to go.
