Allagash is a Certified B Corp

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.

Certified B Corporation

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.

Beer for the Front Lines

We're sorry to say that we no longer have beer to provide. By the time we ran out, we had handed out over 11,400 cans of beer. (more…)
