Get to know Belgian ales
Maine’s Allagash makes some of the best around
Allagash Brewing Co. makes some of America’s best Belgian-style ales, and all manner of them. It brews a strong stable of what one might call “regular’’ Belgian beers - a dubbel, a tripel, and of course its witbier - and packages them in 750-milliliter bottles as well as affordable four-packs of 12-ounce bottles (around $10 each). But Allagash’s premier beers - the more interesting ones - can run far more, from $18 to $23 per 750-milliliter.
