Allagash Brewing Co. | Seconds to Summer Lager

May 23, 2022 |

Seconds to Summer Lager, an apparent hit in their taproom-only release series last summer, found its way to cans and throughout distribution this season thankfully. The first and probably most defining characteristic of this beer is the aroma. It’s the beautiful Belgian yeast-forward aroma that is quintessentially Allagash – from White, and Fine Acre, to River Trip and so many others.

They will be donating 20% of every can sold of their Negro Leagues Celebration Series American Style Pilsner to the featured players’ families, and the Negro League Baseball Museum. Read More

April 14, 2022 |

It has been just over two years since the inaugural Side Project Invitational came and went, setting a new standard for craft beer festivals.
