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

December 2020 Update

Black is Beautiful, our imperial stout, has truly delivered some beautiful results. Thanks to your purchase of this beer, we’ve donated a total of $10,000 to the Indigo Arts Alliance and Maine Inside Out—both organizations working to increase racial equity and showcase the talents of Black members in our community.

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.

Allagash Along the Way a 25th anniversary wild ale

A look back at 25 Days of Giving

By Blog, Inside Allagash, Philanthropy, Beer Releases and Brewery News
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. 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

UPDATE – 4/28/20 – PLEASE READ

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. 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. Read More

The Journey to One Million

By Blog, Inside Allagash, Sustainability, Philanthropy, B Corporation, Beer Releases and Brewery News
More than ever in our brewery’s history, we’re using Maine-grown grains to make our beer. In 2016, we made the pledge to increase our usage of local grain—that year, we ended up using around 65,000 pounds. In 2017, we increased it to around 150,000 pounds, and in 2018, 280,000 pounds. By 2020, we had hit 728,000 pounds. Read More
