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…)

Taking a Stand Against Racial Injustice

UPDATE - 6/9/2020 As part of our ongoing effort to be allies to the Black members of our community—and to raise funds for nonprofits fighting to make progress for racial justice—we'll be donating 100% of profits from our online store all week (6/8-6/14) to BEAM (Black Emotional and Mental Health Collective), the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, and the Maine Community Foundation People of Color Fund.We’ve dedicated ourselves as a brewery, and as people, to using beer as a force for good.

What do we mean by “sparkling” beer?

When someone refers to a drink as “sparkling” most often they’re referencing its carbonation. You know, that zippy, zingy, fizzy quality. We describe our Little Grove series of beers as “Sparkling Session Ales” for just that same reason: their carbonation is a key component of their flavor profile. (more…)

How to properly recycle beer cans, carriers, caps, and more.

Since the early days of Allagash, we’ve strived to be an environmentally and socially responsible community member. As the company gained employees, a group of sustainability-minded folks formed a “green team”. That team worked to educate customers and themselves on how to be more socially responsible. That included efforts to: support local farming, learn how to compost, reduce our water usage, and identify which materials we could and couldn’t recycle. (more…)

What makes a refreshing beer?

To us, beer has a wonderfully refreshing quality. It’s fizzy, flavorful, and just that perfect balance between light and full-bodied that almost requires a satisfied “ahhhhhh” after every sip. Of course, not every beer is perfect for a warm summer day. Some are better suited for winter evenings by the fire, others for pairing with dinner. But in this blog, we’re thinking of the lighter, fizzy beers—the Pilsners, the saisons, the witbiers—that perfectly complement a warm day. What exactly are the individual parts that make up a satisfying, flavorful, and refreshing beer? (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…)

How to Pair Lobster and Beer

Maine and lobster are almost synonymous. And as a Maine brewery, we’re happy to report that our flagship beer, Allagash White, is the go-to pair for our state’s dish. We don’t feel the need to be coy about this one: Allagash White, with its hint of citrus and balanced, crisp flavor, just gets the job done. (more…)
