Owner description: Allagash Brewing Company is dedicated to crafting the best Belgian-inspired beers in the world. Best known for our flagship beer, Allagash White, we also enjoy aging beer in oak barrels (beginning with the launch of Curieux in 2004) and spontaneously fermented beers (beginning with our traditional Coolship in 2007). Come up and visit us – we’d love to show you around.

We arrived at Allagash 5 minutes (we just arrived from NC) after the tasting/tour started and we were allowed to hop right in with the group. It was a great tour of the facility, the barrel room was really neat and also the ability to buy specialty beers at the brewery that you can't buy anywhere else. I hope to visit here again one day! One of the best breweries I have toured.

Make sure you go on their web site to make a reservation. Even in late October, it was busy. I thought the tour was typical for a brewery, although our tour guide was very animated and did a good job. They take you through the basics of the brewing process. They serve 4 samples of beer, probably around 3 oz each. The beer is delicious, although the non-beer enthusiasts (aka spouses) sometimes handed over their beers to their mates. Worth a visit if you have the extra time or are a real beer geek.

Have been on the brewery tour twice. Always found out something new and interesting. If you like brewery tours then this is worth the stop. Good beer and a fun tour.

I am surprised that some of the reviews of this tour are negative. We had a great experience. Call ahead to reserve your place on the tour, but the tour itself is free. Prior to the tour you get to sample 4 of their different brews, and to chat with the tour guide. The tour itself was pleasant, but bottling was not occuring on the day we visited, so we did not see that process. I'm not a big beer drinker, but I enjoyed the sampling and had a great time.

This was a great tour. It is free and you get to try about 4 beers which are explained to you before you start the tour. You are taken through a few areas to see where the process starts, bottling and kegging, barreling, etc. The tour leader was very knowledgable and stuck around to answer any questions after too. Definitely one of the top things to do in Portland.
