"Home of the giant Paul Bunyan" Top 5 Page for this destination Bangor by kazander

Bangor Travel Guide: 58 reviews and 72 photos

We didn't plan on visitIng the city of Bangor, but when a wayward bus driver hit my car in Bar Harbor, this is where we came to get her fixed up. We only stayed in town for one night, and although circumstances were not the happiest, we made the most of it. After finding ourselves here, I broke out the trusty Maine guidebook, discovered that there was a huge statue of Paul Bunyan and a Brewery right on the river. That Brewery was Sea Dog, home to one of my (now) favorite beers!
Every cloud has a silver lining.......and how can you go wrong with a Giant Paul Bunyan?

    My favorite TV show takes place in Bangor, Maine (The DeadZone). Anyway, so I was just looking around at Bangor pages. Nice page.

    I'm getting ready to go back up to Bangor for Thanksgiving, and I think I'll suggest the Sea Dog for a meal. I hope the food is on a good day when we go, too.

    I was at SeaDog in Camden, ME but never got to Bangor. Sometimes fate brings you to places you hadn't planned on and when those places are breweries, who are we to argue? ;)

    We will be flying into Bangor so we'll have to stop by the statue. And I love blueberry beer! Tried it in Utah on a parks trip but haven't found any in CA.
