BREWERY VISITS & TOURS:
We would love to have you come the brewery for a visit and check out what we are up to. Our tours typically last around an hour, and include a sampling. We can only do samplings in conjunction with scheduled tours. In order to give everyone the best possible experience, we have moved to reserving spaces for our tours. Please check the scheduling link to the right for availability and tickets (they are free!) Saturdays (spring through fall only) are extremely busy, so you may want to plan ahead a couple of weeks.
Allagash Brewing Company started in 1995, as a one-man operation in a small space on the outskirts of Portland, Maine. Founder Rob Tod had worked in a brewery setting before and recognized a void within the craft brewing movement. While both German and British styles had become prevalent throughout the U.S., the ever-creative Belgian-styles were very difficult to find. Through his travels, Tod had sampled many of these unique beers and felt that the flavors and traditions of Belgium needed to be shared with the American drinking public. He designed a small 15-barrel brewhouse, gathered the finest array of authentic raw materials and began his quest towards the production of traditional Belgian style ales. Rob sold his first batch of beer in the summer of 1995 . . .
