We brew Belgian-inspired beers in our Portland, Maine brewery with a dedication to craftsmanship and quality.
We love living and working in Maine, and our Tribute Series beers are one way we give back to groups and organizations in our home state that make a positive impact in our greater neighborhood.
Our Coolship beers are crafted using a traditional Belgian method of spontaneous fermentation. Hot, unfermented wort is cooled overnight using outside air temperature in a traditional, large shallow pan known as a “coolship.” During the cooling process, naturally occurring microflora from the air inoculates the beer, and in the morning, it is transferred into French oak wine barrels where the entire fermentation and aging (over 1-3 years) takes place.
Experimentation has always been a huge part of our culture at Allagash, and our limited and specialty releases reflect our passion for using the entire brewing palette to create unique beers.
