Rob Tod founded Allagash Brewing Company in 1995 as a one-man operation in a small space on the outskirts of Portland, Maine, after recognizing 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 has grown into one of the industry's most distinguished and well-respected brands. At this tasting, we will sample some of Rob Tod's favorite brews and discuss what makes Allagash beers so unique. Free for current career students and alumni; General public $40.
