What more could one ask for from one of the top Craft Brewers in the country. The 4 beers we tasted we each unique and near the top of beers in their individual style. The young folks who work the bar and gift shop were friendly, welcoming and quite knowledgeable. Although you have to drive through a few of the... More

I'm from one of the biggest brew cities in the US (Milwaukee), so my standards are pretty high. Having said that, take the time to check out Allagash. Good tour and great beers. We don't get Allagash in Milwaukee, but the next time I'm down in Chicago I'm going to make sure to grab some to bring back. Well played... More

Did the brewery tour since it was free and we love Allagash. Very informative and you get a great sense for the passion and love that goes into this wonderful beer. Lots of swag to purchase as well as beers that are not sold anywhere else in NE. Well worth the time. No food available so bring a snack to... More

Great little brewery tour. They provide headsets so you can hear over the machinery. Lots of beer tasting and cool items for sale. I highly recommend it.

Full disclosure: I am writing a book about New England craft breweries and brewpubs and I visited Allagash to interview its owner/brewer Rob Tod. I know Rob from my last book, but it's been at least 15 years since I've seen him. My husband and I had never done the Allagash tour, so I combined my interview with Rob with... More

We went to the brewery for a tasting only as the tours were full (book early if you want a tour on a Saturday!). We sat at the bar, and sampler boards of 4 beers were brought out with a tasting card describing each beer. There was no rush, so it was a comfortable time chatting and tasting beer. Great... More

This was a great brewery tour with everything you'd want. It's a little outside of downtown, so nice and easy (and free) parking. The brewery is big (constantly expanding), the drinking area/store is nice, the outside is spacious and fun, and everything feels very professional and great. You can reserve your spot online in advance so there are no surprises.... More

This was the perfect place to visit on a rainy afternoon (actually anytime). I enjoyed the tour. The guide was terrific and amusing. We saw how the beer was made and were given explanations about how it was made and what made the beer special. The 4 tastings were generous and good! I'd highly recommend this tour.

Allagash Brewery is about 20 minutes out of Portland downtown. The cab trip was $20 each way. If you had a car, it is off I-95 and would be easy to access. You need to book your tour of the brewery at least a month in advance on the Allagash website if you are going in the summer. The tours... More

Came here from Chicago looking for some of my favorite beer. I drank that beer. And I was happy. Then i drank more, and I became sadder and sadder, because that's what beer does to you. I left with beer in my stomach and in my trunk and it was good.
