How to get here
The Cellars at Allagash Brewing
50 Industrial Way, Portland, ME 04103
How is it different from your tasting room?
Our tasting room is open to the public without the need for reservations. It offers more than a dozen beers on tap, lots of beer and merchandise to go, and an onsite food truck. The Cellars is a reservation-based experience that focuses on our wild and sour beer program, with a more intimate guided tasting experience among the barrels and vessels we use to age these special beers.
Where are The Cellars located?
The Cellars is located at 100 Industrial Way right down the street from our main tasting room at 100 Industrial Way.
What will the experience include? What will we see?
The experience includes a welcome sample of Allagash White, and then a guided tasting and discussion of four barrel-aged, wild, or sour beers, intertwined with stories and history of Allagash. The experiences will conclude with a wander through our barrel room to see where the magic happens. There will also be some time once the tasting has ended to purchase beer and merch to go, and/or purchase one additional sample size beer before you go.
When and how will I be able to make a reservation?
Through our booking software Tock which has 14 days rolling availability.
How far in advance can I book?
14 days out
Will you have beer and merchandise for sale?
We will have a selection of limited-edition beers and specially-branded merchandise available for sale exclusively at The Cellars, along with some well-loved year-round beer offerings.
Will beers from The Cellars be available in the tasting room also?
On occasion, we expect to have these beers available in the tasting room, but the majority of the blends we create for The Cellars will be sampled and sold through their namesake space.
Will you have food available?
We’ve created space for food trucks on our new Cellars patio and look forward to offering all sorts of food options at some point in the future. We will not have food trucks on a regular basis to start.
