Brettanomyces and Belgian-style Brewing with Allagash Sr. Brewer Tom Bonafair

In this special Shelton Brothers Festival installment of Hop City’s Brewers Lecture Series Allagash Sr. Brewer Tom Bonafair talks about brewing with Brettanomyces, coolship brewing, and Belgian-beer production.

Founded in 1995 in Portland, Maine, by Rob Tod, Allagash has been on the forefront of the craft beer revolution. From their flagship White to barrel-aged Curieux, Allagash’s beers have won numerous awards and they continue to push the limits of what yeast, fruit, and barrels can do to transform beer. Allagash is the first US brewery to utilize a coolship as an open-fermentation vessel and has produced a wide variety of spontaneously fermented and wild beers—many of them barrel-aged.

The Brewers Lecture Series is a monthly feature at Hop City’s Westside location in Atlanta.  Follow Hop City on Facebook for details on September’s installment with Kathy Davis of Abbey of the Holy Goats.
