Thursday, May 16, 10-11:30 am
When Rob Tod founder Allagash Brewing Company in 1995, it was a one-man operation in a small space on the outskirts of Portland, Maine. He had worked 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.
Today, Allagash has six year-round beers in its portfolio, seven yearly releases and numerous one-offs and keg only releases. It began as New England's original Belgian-Style brewery and have grown into one of the industry's most distinguished and well-respected brands.
