Allagash Hugh Malone Ale
Allagash Hugh Malone Ale balances powerful hop aromas and bitterness with an understated malty sweetness to create a wonderful addition to our Tribute Series.
This year's Hugh Malone begins with a grain bill featuring a blend of Maine grown barley, imported Pilsner, and raw wheat malt. At the beginning of run off, we add a portion of Warrier hops to the sweet wort in the kettle; a technique known as "first wort hopping". As the boil begins, a generous amount of Nugget hops are added for bittering. Later, in the whirlpool, the beer is hopped with a blend of Centennial, Cascade, Mosiac and Chinook for aroma. A similar blend is used, post fermentation, to lend additional hop character to the finished beer. The result is a complex brew with a malty palate, intense hop aromas, pronounced bitterness and a pleasantly dry finish.
Allagash Brewing Company will donate $1 from every bottle of Hugh Malone Ale sold to local community gardens and The Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners.
