The Liberal Cup Public House & Brewery in Hallowell, ME, is our take on the traditional English pub. Our mission is to provide a gathering place for our local friends and seasonal visitors to enjoy good food and drink. Like the pubs that dot the English countryside, The Liberal Cup is an inviting and cozy spot to bring family and friends. And while the draughts will conjure that familiar flavor of jolly ol’ England (ales and bitters being our specialty), we’re happy to brag that the food will not. Our award-winning chef has taken classic pub fare and elevated it with fresh, local ingredients. His daily specials highlight Maine's seasonal offerings and on the weekends he likes to turn The Cup into a gastropub with his haute and nouvelle cuisine creations.
Very busy, very popular, delicious meals and homemade beers. Tuesday nights are trivia nights (8-10pm) which is popular with the locals. Great atmosphere - not just for 'liberal's' (though they may feel most at home there).
Bets of all, the regulars are friendly to me, and the drinks aren't overly pricey! My new favorite place! Just found this place a little while ago.
