Great imperial, smooth intensity
Excellent beer, service was great. Went in to play pinball and shuffleboard! IPAs are fantastic!
This porter was very smooth and had a subtle smokiness which gave it a nice complexity.
Wow so good, subtle raspberry flavor in a refreshing ale.
Since you serve sours, you have already jumped to the top of my list. Tried the Jali (jalapeño sour) and Alloy (sour golden ale). Both excellent! The warmth factor and alcohol content of the Jali made it a one and done for me, but the Alloy was light and smooth and very easy to drink. Even got a bottle of Salacious (pineapple, blueberry, habanero sour) to try at home! Beer selection + atmosphere + super friendly bartenders = many more visits! So happy we found this gem!
Perfect on a cool day to warm your soul. I usually get a small glass to sip while drinking a pint of whatever is on the rotating draft list.
Great beer. Well balanced, and well crafted. Great job!
Sour beer with a kick so delicious So happy I happened upon your brewery while on a quick over night in Maine 🥰
Reviews are tricky! Many times we read them - and wonder if they're on the money or not. And it gets even more questionable when either food or drink are involved. With that in mind, writing a review for Hidden Cove offered me an opportunity to comment, as an outsider, on their operation, demeanor - and of course beer. As we all know, there are so many beer outlets that make their own beer that it has actually become overkill. Personally, so many of them taste over-hoppy, ill-skilled - and well … green … simply released before their time. Then, one day - I walked into Hidden Cove. The footprint of the tap room-brew pub is seamless - from bar, to tables to extra-curriculars. And … wow - smiles on the faces of the help that can actually converse about the beers and their overall properties … not always the case elsewhere. Most of all - the flights that you can orchestrate are amazing in that whatever you choreograph into four five-ounce glasses completely mesh harmoniously with each other. Their regular ales - like pale or Bucko's brown nutty - are singular in taste, and have distinct personality from H'Cove's IPA's - which are ales in their own class with unique independence as well. Specialties like flavored, spiced and wheat brews are also over the top and make Hidden Cove a treasure-chest of excellence. Want to talk about the value of Hidden Cove – email me at [email protected]/ So many micro's are available – but so few are memorable. Hidden Cove is one of the few that stands out.
Jali is a must have for any sour beer fan. With its spicy kick of jalapeño, it's a cold draft that will keep you warm all year long and leaving you craving more.
The Jali is my favorite here. If you like your beer with a kick, this one is for you. I always appreciate the unique flavors Hidden Cove puts out and their attention to quality is commendable too. Great beer. Great people.
Do you want a beer that makes you feel like you're snuggled up by the fireplace this winter? Look no further than Hidden Cove's Trinal! The hints of bourbon and red wine from the barrel-aging process shine through, and makes you feel warm and relaxed with every sip. One of my favorites from here, would recommend to all!
Absolutely delish love this place so cute and home towny
If you like spice and flavor and this is the beer for you. I tried it months ago and it was my instant favorite. Everytime my husband and I visit Maine we both stock up on our favorites to take back to NY with us. They brewery itself is great, free popcorn, table and card games a cute gift shop with cozy sweatshirts and sometimes they have live music. They have tables and a bar to sit at and the bartenders are friendly. Clean bathrooms too! Im so glad we found this gem of a place.
Spent a well in Wells this summer and stopped at Hidden Cove every night, stayed right acres the street, can't wait to go back. We bought a bunch of beers to go, the demon fire was simply amazing. Something so different I wasn't sure about it. I enjoy all of their beers!
Nice IPA not to hoppy 6 percent ABV nice No after taste
Absolutely exquisite. A truly unique and dynamic beer. A sip of this fine craft beer starts off sour and refreshing and ends with exciting notes of jalapeño unlike anything you have tried before. Don't leave the brewery without trying one of these gems. Cheers!
Very surprising mouth feel and afterburn, one of my favorites.
What a great beer; everything you want it to be. Not too fruity, and a great switch from all the mango and blueberry beers that are gaining popularity. Also, besides the great taste, the name and can are epic, makes for a full booty in my eyes! Cheers mateys.
Great place, good service good atmosphere but most important great beer. Highly reccomend.
I would highly recommend this brew for a warm summer night, it's light crisp raspberry undertones are so refreshing! I will be back for more. Also, the ambience in the brewing company is so nostalgic and comfortable.
This is the best beer ever. I tried it in a flight and then for 2 weeks craved it. Got another flight on my 2nd visit then had a glass of Jali. Awesome 👍🍺
Awesome DIPA! I love finding new DIPA's to try and this was great. Cool packaging as well!
A smooth tasty sour, making you want to come back for more.
There aren't many breweries that i would drive 2 states away for, however Hidden Cove is the top of the list. We regularly take the ttip from MA to ME for their rotation of specialty beer list we cannot get at the packie in MA. Jali is always my go-to. From the first moment i tasted it, it reminded me of a summer garden in beer form. That same sweet sour smell, warm sun on your face, and the birds chirping. And with just a hint of jalapeno heat, it is beyond perfectly created!
I may have tried every beer during the three days we were in Maine. All extremely good. Bought a bunch to take home and as gifts. Movie theater is close by so we drank beers and walked over to catch a movie. Great location. A+++++++
We stopped by in late October on our way to Portsmouth. The beer was great and the atmosphere was laidback. They have seating and TV's along with games on one side. They also have a great merchandise area. The bartender was so friendly and helpful. We shared a couple of flights, but the Demon Fire was my absolute favorite. We will stop again when we are in the area.
With the cooler weather here, I tend to go dark like 4:30 with my beer. The problem is that browns, winter beers, porters, and stouts are quite malt forward and leave me missing out on that cherished hop bite. I've been looking for weeks for a hoppy brown ale and finding nothing but carbon copies of whatever is "hot" right now. I am so thankful to Hidden Cove for breaking out and making the only hoppy brown I see on the shelves. I've been a big fan of Hidden Cove Brewing Co from the beginning and that never has changed. Thank you again!!
I love this beer, it is smooth tasting not to heavy. It is a dark beer. I live in Connecticut and I don't get to visit the very friendly staff at Hidden Cove so I stock up before I leave to enjoy the beer while I am away.
Always a pleasure when I get to Wells, to make Hidden Cove my first stop! I buy Thunder Clap in local stores when I can...love the double IPA. Hoppy and with the citrus flavor is what I love!
What a wonderful place. Very cozy bar area with great drafts and knowledgeable staff. Nice family room with games and live music.
I had the Grape Wine Sour Ale and it tasted like I was sitting in the sun in Napa Valley, while enjoying the soothing guitar sounds of the man playing at the back of the bar. This place truly is a hidden gem. You feel right at home, and looking up at the starry ceiling reminds you of your youth. 10/10 recommend and will be visiting again.
Going up to Maine from NY for vacation is usually a semi annual thing for my wife and I, and I'm proud to say that stopping here is now part of that tradition. I was very happy to find this place and the wonderful patroon IPA. I'm not usually an IPA fan but this is hands down the best I have ever had. Not too heavy like many other IPA's and the flavoring is delicious. Whenever we head back home to NY I always bring some home with me. Wish they were in NY so I could have it all the time.
Hands down the best beer I've ever had! I brought some home to North Carolina and my family agreed. I wish we could get it here!!
Thunder clap is a great double IPA. Awesome flavor and brewed in on of my favorite places Wells MAINE !
This is a great light ale! It is mildly fruity and has great drinkability. I could drink these all summer long. Definitely a crowd pleaser.
A delightful porter. Smokier than most, which offsets the sometimes heavy bourbon barrel taste—while actually complimenting the wood and bourbon flavors. Ideally, get a honey dipped donut from Congdon's up the street and bring it to HCB. A wonderful pairing.
Madian mango is a must try after trying it for the first time i sas craving another. Went back and it was still as good ss the first time trying it.
I tried the Jali in a 4oz taster and I was blown away. I was very hesitant as most jalapeño beers are overly pickly tasting. However this benefited highly from the 10 year aging in the tequila barrel. They found a great balance with this one.
