An annual Allagash tradition, Hugh Malone Ale is a blend of both Belgian and U.S. brewing methods. This limited-release beer combines the intense aromas of American hop varieties with the delicate esters found in Belgian-style yeast. Hugh Malone is brewed with a blend of pilsner malt and raw wheat. Each year, multiple test batches are run to experiment with different hop combinations in search of the right balance of citrus, fruit, pine, and spice notes. While there is a commonality between the hops used in Hugh Malone each year, there’s always great variety.
