“Brewery Extraordinnaire”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Allagash Brewery is a delightful place to visit. They give informative tours about the brewery and brewing beer. My favorite part of the whole experience is the beer tasting (prior to the tour). My favorite beer of all times is Curieux. You have to visit Allagash and taste their Belgium inspired beers! Yum!!

“Alla Tours - Visa's for Russia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

We booked with Alla Tours, as they clarified that we did not need to apply for a visa for our 2 day tour while on a cruise. We booked with them because Alla responded almost immediately to our queries, was most helpful, and her tours were a great success!

“fun thing to do with free beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

This was a fun thing to do on a snowy Saturday. First you get to sample some beer then you get a tour of the plant with some explanations about how beer is made. You must get free ticket ahead of time

“Authentic ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

If you're looking for an authentic brew tour in Portland..this is a good one. While Allagash is getting HUGE across the country...you don't feel that way on the tour. You feel like you're hanging out in Portland with friends. One of the things I love about this tour is that you drink BEFORE the tour..not after. 4 free samples then off to a short tour in the brewery. The brewery is not big, but big enough to see a really cool process. I thought the best part was going into the "barrel aging" room. Yes, they age some of their beer in barrels...so unique! Really chill tour guides. Great free activity if you're heading up to Maine!

“Freat way to spend an hour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

You usually make reservations in advance, but there were a couple of walk ins today. A small brewery that is growing. The cement trucks were there today. We tasted five of their Belgian style beers. Great explanations of each, and why it tasted like it did. Great explanation of why Belgian is different than British or German. Knowledgeable staff helped out. I will do it again
