Must see · Brewery · Hidden Gem · Food & Drink
Take a tour of Allagash Brewing Company and find out all about the process of crafting Belgian-style beers made of wheat in place of barley and spiced with orange peel and coriander. The brewery was conceived as a small, 15-barrel brewery and opened by Rob Tod in 1995, a former employee at Otter Creek Brewery who saw an open market niche for white Belgian beers. The tour includes four samplings of different types of beer, while the food truck in the courtyard offers some light bites.

  • We had the Curieux and the Golden Ale Aged with Riesling Must, a limited beer that was pretty great. Allagash is a favorite out of Portland's many breweries.  more »
  • Awesome beer and awesome atmosphere. We went to some other breweries in Portland but this was by far the best. Great food truck there too. Lots of outdoor seating.  more »
  • Already a fan of Allagash, but this tipped the scales for me. Excellent little tour, super cheap too. Great sized sample pours along the tour. Great tasting room at the end! I could have stayed in their beer garden for hours.... with the food truck and the lovely atmosphere! Highly recommend the trek out here. Totally worth it! And try a little of everything, even beers you might not think you’d like.
  • This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Portland. My wife enjoyed it too and she isn't a big fan of beer. The tour was great, led by Meg. After the tour she spent so much time with multiple folks from the group individually in the tasting room. She talked to us about what we like, brought some samples (found one my wife liked!), and even gave us a special drink when she found out it was our anniversary trip. She also took time to recommend other things to do in Portland. Gabe was also great and very friendly in the tasting room. These seem to be some of the most genuine and friendly people I've ever met. It's obvious they love what they do and want to share that joy with others. Even if you're not staying in this area of Portland, it's worth a trip out there. Give yourself time before and after the tour if you decide to book one as you'll want to stick around! The tour and the drinks in the tasting room are all reasonably priced. If we lived closer we would be here often!
