Allagash has by far the best brewery tour I've been on. It includes walking through they brewing, fermenting, bottling, and oak aging areas. The tour guide was fairly knowledgable about their operations and managed to slide Allagash's talking points in rather nicely. The headsets were a nice touch as several of the areas were rather noisy.
They had several bottles for purchase and at least one that could only be found at the brewery (Neddles).

They had tasting flights available but couldn't pull pints. Everything available to try was available on the tour.

Allagash didn't serve food but outside their was a food truck.

The tour is amazing and free. It does require reservations so go to the website. The 4 beer flight before or after the tour is also free! The only downside is there are only 4 at one time and there are no options to get pints on premise. Still doesn't stop me from going as much as possible.

Incredible facility and a very nice tasting room. They serve free flights, so tough to argue with that! The rating is more for the location than their beers. I like Allagash, but prefer American style APAs and IPAs.

Fantastic brewery, and a fantastic tour.

Allagash is a fairly large brewery overall, and their tour takes you through the entire operation, including their extensive barrel aging program.

They serve a great beer flight at the brewery, but alas, no food.

You can buy some of their great beer on the premises, including some options that are only available at the brewery itself, and others that are otherwise extremely limited in distro.

As to the quality of the beer itself, Allagash has made a name for itself as one of the pioneers of Belgian-style American craft beer scene. Their success makes them easy to overlook, but do so at your own loss; they are one of the very, very few brewers in North America who can legitimately claim to brew authentic, world-class Belgian-style ales (and are similarly one of the very few with a true coolship).

I cannot recommend their beer or their brewery tour well enough. One of the most informative, friendly, and yet not condescending tours I've been on to date.
