Fish fries are a staple in the Black community, going back as far as our first days on this continent. On Saturdays, enslaved people would work until noon, and some would spend the rest of the day fishing, bringing back whatever they caught for the rest of the community. That time-honored tradition still stands today, reaching across the country, gathering together friends and families for celebration and fellowship. Read More

My holiday season usually kicks off with the sound of Karen Carpenter, the Temptations, and Johnny Mathis. Next come decorations, holiday movies, and old Christmas episodes of favorite TV shows. My husband and I move through the season checking off this imaginary to-do list. Do we have hot chocolate in the pantry? What’s our budget for gifts? Are we finally going to get around to decorating the outside of our house like “real” grown ups? And perhaps my favorite—do we have enough butter and flour?  Read More

Allagash Haunted House truffles


By Blog, Recipes, Inside Allagash, Beer-pairing, recipes, and more
In more ways than one, Stephen King helped shape me into the person I am today. As a little girl, I’d grab a book from my mom’s collection—Cujo, The Shining, Pet Sematary—and happily disappear into a world of horror, gore, and terror. Admittedly, I was a little too young to dive into such spine-chilling stories, but it fostered my love of reading and eventually writing. It also gave me a love for horror, and its ultimate holiday—Halloween.  Read More

Our favorite experiences during the Maine summers usually involve friends, Allagash White on draft, and golden hour.

Below, you’ll find grilling tips sourced from us at Allagash as well as Noble Barbecue Co-owner Ryan Carey. Read More

Gingerbread loaf with Allagash Curieux

Gingerbread with Orange-Scented Whipped Cream

By Beer-pairing, recipes, and more, Recipes
For the holidays, our good friend Jennifer (@JennifahBravo) created a gingerbread loaf recipe to pair with Curieux—our bourbon barrel-aged Belgian-style golden ale. Curieux’s aromas and notes of vanilla, coconut, and bourbon are a perfect accompaniment to the deep, rich molasses flavor of the gingerbread. The zesty orange-scented whipped cream really brings it to the next level. Highly recommended for your next holiday get-together. Read More

Sean’s Maine Lobster Boil: How to

By Beer-pairing, recipes, and more, Recipes
Allagash Lobster Boil
Want to hold a lobster boil that would make a true Mainah proud? Luckily, you don’t need to be thigh-deep in a snowbank on the rocky coast to pull off a Maine-style feast. Our favorite brewer/cook Sean prepared a truly memorable lobster boil with only a large pot and normal-sized grill. As we found, with some pretty minimal prep and the right ingredients, you can boil crustaceans and corn with the best of them.

Here’s what you’ll need for a meal that serves two (hungry people):

Maine Lobster Mac ‘n’ Cheese Recipe

By Beer-pairing, recipes, and more, Recipes
lobster mac n cheese
Our friends over at Maine Lobster came to us with a delicious recipe for Maine lobster Mac ‘n’ cheese. Naturally, our first inclination was to test it out with a cold bottle of Allagash White. Our resident chef/senior brewer, Sean Ellsworth, whipped up this recipe and it turned out to be just as delicious as it looks on paper (or screen). Plus, we were happy to discover that White’s notes citrus and spice complemented the savory creaminess of the cheese and subtle, briny flavor of the lobster.
You can find the recipe below.

The Ultimate Whoopie Pie

By Recipes, Beer-pairing, recipes, and more
Allagash Whoopie pies
What we have here is a whoopie pie recipe that’s been passed down for generations. Only after obtaining the consent of her Great Aunt was Charli—our event coordinator extraordinaire—able to divulge this delicious recipe for “Black Moon” whoopie pies to the world. And we can say from personal (tasty, tasty) experience that these are serious pies: flavorful, moist, and powerfully chocolate-y in just the right ways.

Allagash Trifle with Interlude Sabayon and Black Ginger Cake

By Beer-pairing, recipes, and more, Recipes
Recently, we had an amazing beer dinner with our friends at Simon Pearce—turns out they’re just as masterful cooks as they are glassblowers. In fact, we had such a memorable time that we couldn’t help but ask them to create a recipe with our beer. The beer was Interlude, a tart, vinous beer that’s fermented with a blend of yeasts then aged in red wine barrels.

They came back with one better: a trifle that uses our Interlude in the sabayon—a light custard made from sugar, egg yolks and, traditionally, wine—and Allagash Black in their ginger cake. The short version: it blew our minds.

The recipe for this incredible dish is below.

Curieux Doughnuts

It’s obligatory to show the finished product first.

This summer, two of the fine chefs—Chef Justin and Chef Powder—from Earth at Hidden Pond developed a crazy-tasty recipe for Curieux Doughnuts. Since we’re big fans of enjoying Curieux in its liquid form, we were understandably excited to try it in doughnut form.

Sean’s Mixed Fruit Pie

By Beer-pairing, recipes, and more, Recipes
We found that fruit pies pair particularly well with Curieux, our bourbon barrel-aged ale. So we solicited Sean Ellsworth, a native Mainer, graduate of Johnson & Wales culinary school, lover of rhubarb, and brewer here at Allagash to give a lesson in pie making. We hope you enjoy his recipe as much as we did!



The first step to making a pie is creating the dough. This is much easier than you may initially think, and while you can certainly use store-bought dough, it just tastes, and feels, better knowing you made it yourself.
