Description
  • Allagash Brewing Company is a tourist attraction.
  • Allagash Brewing Company is a brewery in Portland, Maine. Founded in 1994 by Rob Tod, Allagash sold its first batch of beer in the summer of 1995. Tod had been working in breweries around the U.S. and recognized a void in the American brewing movement. While both German and British styles were available throughout the country, Belgian-style beers were very difficult to find. He established a small 15-barrel brewery and began brewing Allagash White, modeled after Belgian Wit beer. His beer gets its flavor from the use of wheat in place of barley as well as the addition of Curaçao orange peel, coriander and other spices. All of the beers Allagash produces are bottle conditioned. The technique calls for two fermentations, the first in the fermenting tanks and the second in the bottle itself. A coolship is used to cool the wort for some of the beers. Before the beer is bottled, a small amount of yeast and sugar is added and a second fermentation occurs. It is this second fermentation which produces a notable increase in carbonation, a softer feel and remarkable complexity.
