TBP Podcast: Celebrating 20 years of Allagash with founder Rob Tod

The Brewed Palate podcast is back! For the the third year in a row I recently headed to my go to NYC craft beer bar, Blind Tiger Ale House for their annual Allagash Brewing Company event. However, this  year’s event was different in that it was a celebration of Allagash’s 20th anniversary…After catching up with some Blind Tiger regulars I invited Allagash founder Rob Tod outside for our third annual interview to chat about his brewery and the state of American craft beer. Afterwords we continued our celebration with a few Allagash beers and a couple of my home-brews. Both of which he and all those who tried them enjoyed…Now that I finally purchased a new audio recorder I hope to record and post more podcast episodes in the near future. Cheers!
