This established beer festival that is now in it’s 21st year. Featuring more than 200 beers, this is one big and excellent charity fundraiser.
Allagash will be there pouring some of our favorites: White, Curieux, and Hoppy Table Beer. Stop by, say hi, and enjoy some Belgian-style beer.

If our quality control measures on our packaging line were an iceberg, the following list would be the top of the tip. Rather than list every single thing, we’ve pulled out some of the more visual ways our team makes sure that beer moves faultlessly from our tanks to a package to your hand to your stomach. Read More

In part one, we outlined what white beers are. Now we cover our story.
We’ll be hosting the Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland for a very special dog adoption event. The event will feature:
– Puppies at the brewery, ready to be whisked off to a forever home
– A photo station set up for dog portraits (bring your pooch)
– Plus all leash and collar sales will be donated directly to the Animal Refuge League.
The event runs from 2:00 until 4:00, but we recommend coming early if you want to bring home a puppy—they usually find homes quickly. As an added bonus, two beers will have just released the day before. Brett IPA, a tropically hoppy beer fermented with 100% Brettanomyces. And Two Lights, a spritzy summer beer fermented with both lager and champagne yeast.
At Allagash, we love white beers. It’s a storied style that we just happen to think is delicious too. And because we can’t get enough of it, we wanted to take a little time to talk about both the beer’s origins, and our take on the style.
Here’s what you’ll need for a meal that serves two (hungry people):
One of the best things about working in the Allagash tasting room is simply talking to people about beer. And while talking about Coolship Resurgam (our interpretation of a Lambic-style gueuze) I’ve noticed many furrowed brows. That’s how this blog post was born.
There are two beers out there that sound sort of similar, but are actually extremely different: gose and gueuze (you’ll also see it spelled geuze). To further confuse the issue, both beers fall in the wildly varied category of “sour” beers and they both contain a pretty high portion of wheat. That’s about where the similarities end.
If there’s a dish that chefs make for themselves, it’s cacio e pepe. Pronounced “catch-ee-oh ee peh-pay,” the name literally translates to “cheese and pepper,” which is about the measure of the recipe. A sophisticated ancestor of today’s mac ‘n’ cheese, this meal is more technique than ingredients (the full recipe can be found at the bottom of this blog).
