Allagash Brewing Company is now a Certified B Corp—strengthening our dedication to use beer as a force for good. We’re also the first company to achieve benefit corporation status in the state of Maine.
B Corps are certified by the non-profit B Lab. B Corps meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, transparency, and legal accountability to all of their stakeholders: workers, customers, their community, and the environment.
Becoming a Benefit Corporation is a legal designation, granted by the state of Maine. As a Benefit Corporation, we have written into our charter—in a legally binding way—that we hold our community, our employees, and the environment as equally important to the production of beer.
The “Why” of it All
These accreditations are all about a rigorous commitment to our core values. They’re self-imposed guidelines that allow us to measure our success in a publicly transparent and accountable way. Our plan is to continue to improve the things that are important to us: the experience of working at Allagash, giving back to our community, and environmental stewardship.
