Allagash: The Pride of Maine
One of best craft beers and one of our personal favorite craft breweries is Allagash, located in the lovely city of Portland, Maine. Founded by Rob Ford in 1995, Ford’s goal was to fill a major gap in the American beer market. Back in ’95, German and British style beers were well-represented in the mainstream American market though Belgian style beers were not. Thus, Ford set out to bring the delicious Belgian style white wheat beer to the market. Ford perfected his recipe by adding a hint of Curacao orange peel, coriander and other spices. Nearly twenty years later, Allagash White remains their flagship beer.
Allagash other beers also come from the rich Belgian tradition with six yearly beers and seven seasonal beers. Stop by and try the Allagash White which currently on tap!
