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 - Allagash White, modeled after a traditional Belgian witbier - in the summer of 1995. 

Today, Allagash has grown from a one-man operation into one of the Top 50 Craft Breweries in U.S. (by sales volume) and has earned a spot on Maine’s Best Places to Work list for two years running.   Allagash has six year round beers in its portfolio, eight yearly releases and numerous specialty and draft-only releases.  Among U.S. breweries, they have served as a pioneer of barrel-aging beer in oak barrels (beginning with the launch of Curieux in 2004) and were one of the first to spontaneously ferment beers with the use of a traditional Coolship (beginning in 2007).

Allagash began as New England's original Belgian-inspired brewery and over two decades has grown into one of the industry's most distinguished and well-respected brands.
