Then brew master Jason Perkins takes him on a behind the scene tour of Allagash, including a special trip their wild barrel aging room, where he shows Matt how they blend Allagash beers. After that Jason shows me their Coolship, a special building used to add wild yeast to their specialty beers.

Then his beer tasting knowledge is put to the test on Allagash’s quality control panel. Next he sits down with the founder of Allagash, Rob Tod, to talk about the early days at the brewery.
