Last fall, when a Maine restaurant got a really dumb customer review, it didn't hold back. Bravo.

Mason's Brewing Company in Brewer is a fantastic local establishment that serves up tasty craft beers and some of the best food in the area. This extremely popular location has many loyal customers, but every now and then, you get some criticism that isn't very constructive.

In a Facebook post last October, Mason's called out a restaurant reviewer who complained about a rainbow flag, claiming it wasn't appropriate, and that the establishment wasn't a good place for "traditional values."

The business shot back with an epic takedown and several Facebook users chimed in to show support.

On this Throwback Thursday, take a look back at the original Facebook post, and some of the incredible comments from other customers exactly as they appeared online.

If your “traditional values” mean excluding an entire group of people because of who they are and who they love, you need to take a LONG, hard look at yourself and ask yourself if these traditions of yours are going to make your children’s children proud.

I love your foo foo food, your beers, and your fabulous staff. If someone is offended by a rainbow flag, the problem is not the establishment flying the flag, but the person who is offended. ❤️

When my mom was going through treatments in Brewer we stopped by after every appointment because she absolutely loved the environment and the food, she had never really enjoyed a brewery before because she was a non-drinker, but she LOVED your establis… See more

Last weekend was the first time I was able to eat at your restaurant. The food and atmosphere were excellent. I was sure to tell the manager on the way out - how much I appreciated the pride flag. This is why.
