Spring cleaning sucks. This beer rules.
We’ve been dreaming about this all week: spontaneously fermented beer aged on Balaton cherries, free doughnuts, free coffee. Doors open today at 10:30am with a four-bottle limit for this brewery-only release of Coolship Balaton. 🍒🍻🍩

Herbal with golden raisins, honey, and biscuity malt. The bittering hops come through nicely on the finish. One year did wonders on this.
Breaking this one out shortly. Coolship Resurgam spontaneously fermented ale aged in oak barrels 17’ from @allagashbrewing.
I had a very long week... cheers to the weekend 🍻
In full honesty, I thought Coolship Red was a little too sweet. Nice flavors of grape must and red raspberry, but it came across a bit syrupy, which was a bit of a letdown. What do you think of this beer?
I handled today's responsibilities. All finished up and lunch date with my homegurl. #Allagash
on deck! Holla at ya boi!!! We outchea living and having fun. Y'all do the same. One!!! .
[ I want someone to look at me the way I look at beer 🍻 😍] Check out all the new product that just came in the door. #happyfriday #newbeerfriday
This Saturday 3/23, we will be releasing the newest version of a Coolship beer that hasn’t seen the light of day since 2011: 🍒Coolship Balaton! 🍒
Coolship Balaton is a blend of two and three year old spontaneously fermented beer that has aged on Balaton cherries from Dole’s Orchard in Limington, Maine, giving the beer a bright red hue with cherry dominating the flavor and aroma. As you can tell by the look on Mike's face, we are super excited to share (and drink) this amazing beer. —-
To celebrate Coolship Balaton's return, we will be opening early with coffee and donuts, plus a special cask! 🙌🙌 See you Saturday!

Our monthly series called "Memoirs of the Allagash" written by Lois O'Leary. These thoughtful stories and drawings by Brian Jandreau take us back in time and is something we look forward to receiving every month.
Here is an excerpt: "Looking back I think there were days, months, and probably years when I was so busy taking care of our three boys,keeping the house, and running our sporting camps that I didn’t have time to stop and think about Bob’s activities. This may sound strange since the activities I’m referring to have to do with his ideas of the type of lifestyle he wanted to live.
Bob decided the Farmer Brown lifestyle looked good to him, but since I was never a big fan of the 1960s, I knew he was trying to recapture a magical moment in his past. It started small with buying a cow. They must have been out of magic beans that day, because I’m sure the bean stock would still be growing. The cow was to take care of itself on an island with a lot of other cows. Next the pigs came to our backyard. The kids were excited as the fences were built. Meanwhile my Dad told me horror stories of how pigs would attract bear; he warned that a bear would take a small child as quick as it would take a pig. I thought of pouring honey over Bob’s head but I just didn’t have the time. Finally, the hens arrived. I remember the mailman tooting his horn and motioning for me to come out to the mailbox. Believe it or not, that was not easy to do with three young boys inside always looking for something fun to do. The mailman looked a little frazzled as he got out and handed me a big flat box of cheeping chicks. He claimed he had been listening to them all day and was ready to lose his mind. Bob hadn’t mentioned chicks coming in the mail— I’m sure I would have remembered that—so I assumed they were for his classroom. Yeah, no. They were for us. Soon a hen pen was being built as the boys, the pigs, and my puzzled father watched in silence."

We’re feeling spontaneous. Maybe it’s the brewery-only release of Coolship Balaton? This beer is spontaneously fermented in oak barrels and then aged on fresh, Maine-grown Balaton cherries for a complex flavor that blends spice, tart cherry, and oak. The bottle release starts on Sat. (3/23) at 10:30am with free coffee and doughnuts for all! 4-bottle limit per person. 🍒
FACT: Walt Disney said: "We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths." Like the path that lead Kevin to the women's restroom because it's every guy's fantasy. Except Jim. Idiot....

Emily is awesome. For proof, check out this video celebrating women in craft brewing by @grassowhat
She didn’t mention it in the video, but she’s also a top-notch designer of pinewood derby cars.

When I first had Coolship Red from @allagashbrewing
in 2014, I said it was the best fruited Wild Ale I’d ever had. I said *fruited*, in case Duck Duck Gooze is reading this...Five years and many batches later, it remains my favorite. I can't believe 30 cases just made their way to Chicago and hit shelves. I feel like the Larry David.gif, kind of sad it doesn’t all sell out at the brewery, but pretty dang stoked to have It hit home.⠀

Pablo turned 3 and paw-tied till he passed out.
Once a week, I head over to wegmans and hang with their beer dude. He's been helping me hunt down my perfect beer. I'm definitely not picky, nor am I a beer snob, but I really dig heavy wheat germy beers. So far, I've tried a bunch of bomb beers! I started with @magichatbrewing
Not Quite Pale Ale , then to @ufobeers
great Hefe, next was Pearly Wit @springdalebeer
which was super good, onward to @allagashbrewing
White, and I'm currently on @chouffeusa
Blonde which is killer! They've all been tasty, but it's not quite right. The Allagash and Chouffe are in the lead as being pretty close to my perfect beer! I'm sure it will take long time or perhaps forever, but it's ton of fun trying new beers 🍻! #wegmans #wegmansislife #beer #beerstagram #Belgium #Bavarian #german #beers #drinkstagram #naples #ny #newyork #wheat #allagash #ufo #magichat #lachouffe #springdale
