Top Rated Maine Beers and Fresh Maine Lobsters - It doesn't get better than this!
Oct 2021
This is one of the top rated Brewers in the US let alone Maine.
It is a wonderful spot to stop and enjoy a tasty brew and some local food.
Plenty of parking

I loved their Haunted House Black Ale and of course they are known for their Allagash White.

They have a local food truck that serves delicious Lobster Rolls and Lobster Melt Sandwiches. Award winning Maine beer and fresh Maine lobster - it does not get any better than this -except their are several other brewers, like Definitive you can visit and make a day of it with friends.

I agree, the only negative is the lack of an indoor toilet. You have to use a porta potty.

Good morning! Thank you very much for visiting us recently, for your very kind words/feedback and for taking the time to write such a great review, we greatly appreciate it. This is just amazing! We're humbled! We're happy to hear you love our Haunted House, one of our employee favorites. This beer's malty and coffee-flavored bitterness is so good. And Bite Into Maine is in a league of their own! They're top-notch! Their flights of lobster rolls fixed three different ways are heavenly, as is all of their other great food choices. A cold Allagash, our neighborhood brewery friends and fresh Maine lobster helps make life pretty darn good. I would have to agree with you, it doesn't get much better than that. Come back soon. We'll be pouring some new beers on tap next time you visit. Thanks for your support of Allagash, Bite Into Maine and our brewery friends on Industrial Way. Cheers!

Fun place, great beer, no indoor toilets
Sep 2021
The only reason I could not give Allagash 5 stars is because of their lack of “facilities”. Trust me Allagash, no one wants to use a port-o-potty during a charming afternoon drinking good beer. Outdoor hand washing station (located in the middle of the portable toilets) left a lot to be desired.

Good morning! Thanks very much for visiting and for your review, we appreciate it. We're happy to hear you like our beer and our beer garden. Maybe one day soon we'll be able to reopen our brewery for guests to use our indoor bathroom facilities. In the meantime, we'll have to continue using our very clean porta potties. Thank you for your support of Allagash. Cheers!

Enjoyable visit to a place that makes world class beer.
Sep 2021 • Couples
Another 5 star review for a 5 star business. Great beer, friendly people in a great atmosphere. We went twice over a 3 day trip to Portland. It was very busy both times, but we found parking, staff was friendly and the grounds are spacious. Of course the beer is world class with 10 or so offerings on tap (12 or 16 oz) or via can pour. Food is provided by a food truck that does a lot of business (30-40 wait to order and receive food) so plan around the crowds.

Thanks very much for visiting Allagash twice and for your amazing review. We're happy to hear you managed the crowds okay and that you enjoyed some beer and food from Bite Into Maine. I'm certain the food was well worth the wait. We appreciate your kind words about our expanded tasting room patio, our parking and our staff. Thank you! We hope you come back soon. Cheers!

Good beer stop
Aug 2021
This is a nice place to stop for a beer junkie. The beer is great, and they have a lot wider of a selection at the brewery than I can get at home. There is outdoor seating only at the moment, and that made it difficult to find a spot on a rainy day. Additionally, parking is limited. The outdoor bar area to grab drinks is welcome while you're drinking there. Children are fine, but there's nothing for them to do and limited food (it's a brewery, not complaining, just noting). Overall, a good stop.

Good afternoon! Thanks so much for visiting recently, for your review and for your feedback. We always appreciate it. I'm sorry it was raining when you came by. Rainy days tend to get quite busy at Allagash, as well as at the other breweries on Industrial Way. The next time you come by, please give us a call so we can let you know where there's additional parking on Industrial Way. In addition, please feel free to bring in your own food for your children to enjoy. We'll be happy to provide Bite Into Maine with your feedback, thank you! We love to see families with children stop by the brewery. We have a few outdoor "lawn" games set up, I'm sorry if these were already in use. May I offer a suggestion? I keep a pre-packed backpack in my car containing special puzzles, books, games, coloring books and crayons for my little ones to enjoy when I'm visiting breweries and restaurants. We hope you join us again for beers on our patio. Thank you for your support of Allagash. Cheers!

Friendly atmosphere, good beer

Friendly atmosphere, good beer, and easy free parking. The food truck, Bite Into Maine, had delicious lobster rolls. Lots of shaded outdoor seating.

No Parking?
Aug 2021 • Couples
It might be a Portland number one stop, but there is very limited parking! It was Monday at 2pm and we had to leave. Very disappointed after driving all the way up here.

We'd love to meet you and pour you some beer. Cheers, Jeanne!

Great Beer, Great Food
Aug 2021 • Family
Love the beer and variety of choices to sample. They no longer do flights but you can ask for a sample before a pour. Food truck options are limited, but exceptional! Thought this was the best lobster roll/beer combo on our trip to ME.(CT style). Kids loved the burgers. Allagash is a must stop if you enjoy beer and just relaxing with some good food.

First Day Back!
May 2021
We got lucky as we came to Portland for the breweries, and arrived at Allagash (pre-booked) on the first day of re-opening.

Spent way too much money trying every beer on tap, and of course souvenirs.!

This place doesn't need a huge review, it's what you would expect. Despite no tours being available, the staff here were FANTASTIC.

Plenty of other breweries on the same road if you want to sample them all, but as usual we stuck to Allagash on Saturday and would've stayed for 5 more hours if we were allowed.

Very clean, sanitized and we shall return. Thanks Guys!

Good afternoon! Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a nice review and for visiting us on our re-opening day. We're grateful! Thanks for your very kind words. We love, love our Tasting Room staff. They're a pretty special group. They'll all get your feedback, as will their managers, and I know they'll be thrilled. Come back soon. Even though we're booking 90 minute tastings, feel free to come back over the course of several days and get your additional 5 hours in, if you'd like ;-) Take care! Cheers! And thanks again!

Thanks so much for your kind words. I say you celebrate the weekend of the 4th with us again. Make it an annual event?! We've got so many new beers to introduce our friends to this summer. If you're referring to Bite Into Maine, the lobster roll truck, they're amazing!! Thank you from them. And thank you for your support of Allagash, we appreciate it. Cheers!

Beer pickup curbside
Aug 2020 • Solo
Allagash craft beers are great, and I enjoyed drinking Allagash White enough in local restaurants. So, ordered pickup of Allagash Violeta and White from their website for curbside delivery. They open curbside at 10:30 am but you have to wait 1 hour for fulfillment. I picked up at 1pm. Enjoying the wild berry brew beer, thanks Allagash!! Too bad that not all beers are available locally in NYC.
