By Blog, Inside Allagash, Sustainability, B Corporation, Quality Control

Below, we’ve put together seven of the small(ish) decisions that we’ve made as we’ve grown as a brewery that have helped us to continue to brew more sustainably and efficiently—all in the hopes of helping other breweries implement more sustainable practices.

Seven of our Favorite Parks in Maine

By Blog, Inside Allagash, B Corporation, Beer Releases and Brewery News

This post contributed by Betsy Cook, Maine State Director of The Trust for Public Land

We’re all spending more time outside these days. In fact, Maine State Parks had their busiest year on record in 2020. It’s a way to safely see friends and family and soak up the health benefits of nature. At The Trust for Public Land, we believe parks are a community superpower. Read More

2020 By the Numbers

By Blog, Inside Allagash, B Corporation, Beer Releases and Brewery News
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. Read More

Honoring the Heritage of our Name

By Blog, Inside Allagash, Philanthropy, B Corporation, Beer Releases and Brewery News
[Updated 10/8/21:]

As we look back upon the first year of our partnership with Nibezun, we’re excited by the progress we’ve made and look forward to continuing our support. In addition to the $2500 grant we donated last year, our tasting room staff selected them as our Charitable Partner of the Month last October, which resulted in an additional donation of $2,776. Both of these donations helped to fund their new roof, which is the first step in preparing Nibezun for their planned solar array in the coming months. This year, we’ve made an additional $2,500 grant and plan to donate the profits from two special beers we’ll have on draft in our tasting room to Nibezun. We’ve also selected them as our Charitable Partner of the Month for October again this year. As we mention in the post below, we continue to take these steps in anticipation of more to come.

Today, October 12th, is Indigenous Peoples’ Day in Maine. This holiday is the result of important work by Maine’s Indigenous Wabanaki Confederacy and their fight for legislation to have this day officially recognized.  Read More

Allagash White Six-Pack

Allagash White – Now in 6-packs

By Blog, Inside Allagash, B Corporation, Beer Releases and Brewery News, Quality Control
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. Read More

Taking a Stand Against Racial Injustice

By Blog, Inside Allagash, Philanthropy, B Corporation, Beer Releases and Brewery News

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. As a way to bring people together. So as we watch tragedy and turmoil rip our country apart, it’s our obligation to use our platform to speak out. Read More

How we’re doing – an update from Rob, our founder

By Blog, Inside Allagash, Philanthropy, B Corporation, Beer Releases and Brewery News
May 11, 2020

I’ve been wanting to write a public update for about a month—to give our supporters and others in the beer industry a clear picture of how we’re weathering this crisis. But each time I considered it, it felt too early. So much was in flux that it would have been like writing about a baseball game after only the first inning. Now that there’s a little more clarity around our near future, I wanted to fill everyone in on how we’re doing at Allagash.  Read More

Wow, thank you all for coming out. It turns out your enthusiasm for our “$1 beer for front line medical workers” offer was orders of magnitude beyond what we could have imagined.

Is there a right way to taste beer?

By Blog, Inside Allagash, B Corporation, What About Beer?, Quality Control
There is in our sensory program. Outside of sensory, we enjoy beers in all sorts of different ways—cans, bottles, glasses, you name it. At the brewery, however, we taste every batch of beer before it’s released. And to make sure the beer we release is consistent, the way we taste it also has to be consistent. Here’s the breakdown of how we taste beer.
