Allagash Nancy Bottle Release Nov. 14

allagash-nancyFree coffee, donuts and a limited wild ale release – yup, I’m sold. Allagash Nancy returns to the brewery on Saturday, November 14 at 9:30am, so start setting those alarm clocks. This is a sour red ale fermented with 6,000 pounds of cherries harvested from Maine’s own Doles Orchard.

The details:

  • $15 per 375mL bottle
  • Limit 2 per person

Nancy is a sour red ale fermented with Maine cherries and Brettanomyces in 100% stainless, for just shy of a year. The cherries were a blend of Balaton and Montmorrency and added at a rate of 2lbs per gallon. Copper in color, Nancy has an aroma of cherries, bread crust and a touch of cinnamon. The flavor is a medley of tart cherry, citrus and pie spice. The finish is dry with a lingering tartness. 6.3% ABV

Allagash Brewing Company is located at 50 Industrial Way in Portland, ME.
