10/30/10-Sebago Brewing Company, Portland, Maine

To say that Tom was hungry would be the understatement of the year. I owed him big time after being such a trooper all day, watching me taste dishes and him not even getting a bite! So wherever he wanted to go for dinner, we would go. After talking to a few people at the hotel, we got a suggestion for a brewhouse within walking distance, so we trekked down to Sebago Brewing Company.

Great cozy bar with a nice casual atmosphere. We got a seat at a high table in the bar area and got down to business. Tom tried two of their beers, the Boathouse Brown ale and the Saddleback ale--both were well received. Tom ordered the Classic Reuben--Our extra lean corned beef sliced thin and piled high on grilled marble rye bread with russian dressing, sauerkraut, and melted swiss cheese--he devoured it, with the only comment being that it could have used more dressing. I ordered the Paradise Cheeseburger Wrap--Black angus beef, lettuce, diced tomatoes, american cheese, pickles, mayo, mustard, and ketchup in a wheat tortilla--it tasted EXACTLY like what I remember McD's cheeseburgers tasted like (I haven't had McD's in years, so I can't totally vouch for that! Tom had my leftovers a day later and agreed, but he hasn't had McD's in a long time either!) but it was very good and filling. Both of our plates had french fries piled high and a pickle on the side. Overall, a nice ending to a great day!
