Portland, Maine based Allagash Brewing will debut their first ever cans this spring, starting with 16-ounce cans of Hoppy Table Beer.
Why not Allagash White?
When the brewery opened in 1995, founder Rob Tod only had one beer – White. It’s become an icon in craft beer, especially in the 17 states you can find Allagash. The brewery can thank their very stringent quality standards for their success.
Carrying over those same high standards of quality and flavor, Allagash has acquired a small can line and soon will branch out into aluminum.
As much as fans most assuredly want to sip tallboys of the famed White, Allagash has chosen Hoppy Table Beer for the maiden can voyage. HTB debuted as a year-round release in January of 2017. The lower alcohol by volume release boasts Chinook, Cascade, Comet, and Azacca hops, plus the brewery’s famous house yeast. The beer literally pairs with everything.
Initially, Allagash’s cans will be limited to the brewery. At least for now. There is no doubt the intention is to ensure the cans live up the brewery’s high standards before expanding production.
A date for the can debut has not been set.
