2020 By the Numbers

In this post, we wanted to pause and take a look back at what 2020 meant for all of us at Allagash. The common thread was most definitely perseverance in the face of challenges: whether they were facing us as a brewery or our community as a whole. We feel lucky to be able to say that we found quite a few ways to give back where we could. We hope you enjoy this look through the numbers that made 2020 what it was. And thank you, as always, for your support, and for helping us make the most of a distinctly difficult year. (more…)

The best part: all of these beers will be available across our entire distribution footprint. (more…)

What’s an Imperial Stout? And what’s an “imperial beer,” for that matter?

The term “imperial” simply refers to a big beer, both in terms of flavor and alcohol. The term is used interchangeably with “double” and “strong” to refer to any style of beer brewed with an extra dose of grains and hops to produce a higher ABV (alcohol by volume). (more…)

How to Tap a Keg

Our guess is that you searched this on your phone and have a keg sitting nearby, waiting to be tapped. First, stick that keg in a bucket of ice. The keg actually pulls beer from its bottom, not the top, so if you just keep the lower third of the keg cold, you’ll enjoy frosty beer until it kicks.  (more…)

Is a Tripel three-times something? – What is a Tripel Beer

What exactly is tripled in a tripel? The short answer is, technically nothing! The style’s name is a nod to, but not a precise calculation of, the stronger alcoholic content in this delicious style of beer. (more…)

Viewing the North Sky – A How-To

These tips and beautiful photography were all created by our friends at Maine the Way. To set the stargazing scene... Crunch. Crunch. Crunch. The brittle surface crust of the snow gives way beneath my feet, sending each footfall several inches deeper than I expect. My headlamp beam bathes a spot about five feet ahead of me in blueish-hued LED light—the rest of the world is a dark void. (more…)

How to Pair Sushi and Beer

Sushi is a delicate food. Its portions, ingredients, and even the culture surrounding it all celebrate the power of simplicity. Because of that simplicity, every ingredient grows in importance. Overall, we recommend a beer that develops slowly across the palate, and won’t overwhelm the sushi or your taste buds. The sublime combination of rice, fish, soy sauce, and often nori (toasted seaweed) is what we’re trying to match our beer to. (more…)
