Coolship Red release

Allagash Brewing Company 50 Industrial Way, Portland

This blend of spontaneously fermented beer is aged on local raspberries. We begin brewing Coolship Red with Pilsner malt, 40% raw wheat, and aged whole-leaf hops. The unfermented wort is then transferred to a large shallow pan called a coolship, which allows the hot wort to mingle with wild yeast and souring microbiota in the Maine air. After fermenting and aging in French oak wine barrels for over two years, we add raspberries and let it rest for an additional four to five months. The finished beer is bright red in color with an aroma of raspberry and oak. Its raspberry-forward flavor is balanced by notes of light funk, apricot, and a tart, dry finish. This beer will be available to-go in 375mL bottles. It will also be available as part of a discounted Coolship Vintage Bundle, which will feature one bottle of our 2020 vintage and one bottle of our new 2021 vintage.
