Allagash White – Now in 6-packs

For pretty much our entire history, if you weren’t at a bar or restaurant, you could only find Allagash White in a 4-pack of bottles. Four was just the right amount to break out for a special occasion. Sometimes people shared them. More often, those people would hide their 4-pack at the back of their fridge and save it for themselves. (more…)

A look back at 25 Days of Giving

Since all the way back in 1995, the Maine community has had our back. Even though they were initially (and understandably) perplexed by our hazy, citrusy witbier, they soon found a love for it that has only grown with time. Because our community has given us so much support, we wanted to celebrate our 25th anniversary by giving back to them. So we created 25 Days of Giving. (more…)

Like Stouts? Try these other beer styles.

Stouts are delicious, dark, roasty beers with a variety of flavor notes like chocolate, caramel, biscuit, dark fruits, and more. Our stout North Sky features some smooth notes of chocolate and caramel alongside a hint of sweetness. Stouts tend to derive most of their flavor from malt as opposed to hops or yeast. If you like stouts, there are plenty of beers, both in and outside the stout family, that we think you’ll love. (more…)

I like IPAs. What other beer should I try?

At this point in time, the most widely available style of craft beer is the IPA (India Pale Ale). This wildly popular and sometimes polarizing style can range from clear to hazy to bitter to juicy. The style’s predominant flavor comes from the higher amount of hops used in the brewing process which provide a pop of tropical fruit, herbs, citrus, or stone fruit (etc.) depending on the hop varieties used.

Beer for people who think they don’t like beer

For years, we’ve heard guests say that while they “don’t really like beer,” they love our flagship beer, Allagash White. If you’re thinking, “that sounds like me,” then we’d bet that there are probably plenty of other beers you’d like! One of the many wonderful things about beer is how varied it is. Ranging from dry to sweet, light to dark, even fruity or funky. (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…)

How to Pair Burgers and Beer

The prevailing culinary wisdom here in America is that burgers pair best with hoppy beers. We don’t disagree. Hops are a nice way to cut through fat and bolder flavors in a burger’s toppings. But there’s more to consider when looking for a beer to enjoy with your burger. This blog is about getting the most out of this quintessentially American meal. (more…)

The Best Oyster and Beer Pairings

Oysters and beer are a remarkable pair. The brine from the oyster not only complements and highlights aspects of the beer, it’s washed clean by the beer’s crisp carbonation, inviting you to eat another oyster (and another oyster and another oyster and...). And if you go up and down the coast—even sometimes from different spots in the same river—each oyster has its own unique profile. This is due to what is known as merroir: the influence that the environment has on an oyster’s appearance and taste. (more…)
