Serious Eats Top 50: Allagash

Serious Eats has selected Allagash Merveilleux top represent Maine in their list of the 50 best beers from across the country.

Then, when everyone else was racing to see how many hops they could shove in a bottle, Allagash was one of the first to experiment with wild-fermented and sour ales. Merveilleux is the love child of those early funky beers. A blend of bourbon and wine barrel aged wild ales, Merveilleux is a wonderful example of what happens when brewers go beyond the novelty of brewing their first sour beer.
