Established in 1995, Allagash Brewing Company is the first Belgian-style brewery in the United States. The brewery was founded in Portland, Maine, by Rob Tod who was trained in Belgium.
Allagash Brewing Company features a unique brewing process, utilizing a coolship to cool down the hot wort after boiling. The wort is then transferred to the traditional, open fermenters, where it will cool overnight. In the morning, the wort is introduced to a mix of its house yeast and its spontaneously-fermenting wild yeast.
