Despite its remote location, Sugarloaf, Maine, features a surprising array of good restaurants. But one slopeside establishment really tugs at the gutstrings, and we mean that in a good way: The Bag & Kettle. It’s an English-style pub with a relaxed Maine vibe.

Beer is brewed on site. We recommend the strong yet mild Potato Ale. [207-237-2451]
