I took the same tour (and delicious tasting) a couple summers ago. Also made our way over to, I think, Sabago for lunch. Not so thrilled with the brews we had at Sabago, sadly...

Very cool! I didn't have a chance to swing through there when a few friends and I were in the state last year but we did have a chance to visit Atlantic Brewing Co. in Bar Harbor. It isn't nearly as big as Allagash but it is awesome and the BBQ joint on site is very tasty! I plan on driving up again next year and Allagash is on my list of stops.

(Maine native here) I'm not too enamored with Sebago's brews either. They tend to have some decent seasonal things, but their main lineup is fairly mediocre. Gritty McDuff's down in the Old Port has some good brews (and food), and if you're just looking for suds (and some meat and cheese), Novare Res has the largest selection by far.

My mistake, it looks like it was built on the side/back. This is a great video if you are interested.
