Allagash Brewing’s (Portland, ME) Curieux has just turned 10. To celebrate a decade of success with the bourbon barrel aged tripel, Allagash is releasing a special 1.5 liter bottle, and unveiling a special contest.
The bottle (seen above) is limited to a run of just 1,000. The contest? Well that requires your creativity. Allagash Curieux fans can submit a video of less than 3 minutes, showing off their love of the beer. After the deadline, fans can vote for their top 5 favorites on the brewery’s Facebook page. Grand prize is a trip for two to the brewery in Portland to be a part of the making of this beer firsthand. The contest runs October 15th – November 5th.
“In the spring of 2004 we decided to get a few freshly emptied bourbon barrels and try our hand at barrel aging beers,” said Rob Tod, founder and brewer at Allagash Brewing Company. “Curious about what would result, we decided to try our Tripel.”
Throughout October, Allagash will hold special barrel-aged events around the country with members from the brewery. The beer lineup includes Curieux, James Bean, Odyssey, Bourbon Barrel Black, and more.
