Allagash Coolship Red

I’ve been working at Allagash for two and a half years, but I’ve decided to go back to school and get my masters in social work. It was a hard choice. The brewery is like my family. It’s where I’ve met my closest friends, but I had a calling. The direction I want to take is helping people who are new to the country get settled in. There’s a huge need here in Portland especially with new arrivals and refugees. But whenever I come back to the brewery, it’s like nothing has changed.


Pallet was a premium print magazine for people with curious minds and adventurous palates. Or put more simply, those who like to think and drink.

Pallet used beer, subtly, as a conduit to the things we love: interesting conversation, great writing, science, history, photography, music and more. Coupled with eclectic content that stretches beyond beer, Pallet was for anyone who is intellectually curious.

Printed on deluxe stock, perfect bound, and with a minimum of 144 pages, Pallet was made to be saved and savoured. It was created by a small army of contributors, stationed all over the world, and executive editor Sam Calagione of Dogfish Head Brewery.

All four back issues of Pallet are now only available digitally, via our friends at Readbug.
