America's Top Free Attractions

Allagash Brewery Tour, Portland, ME
Rob Tod felt there weren’t enough Belgian-style beers in the U.S., so he decided to do something about it by founding the Allagash Brewing Company in 1995. It became one of the first American brewing companies to make cork- and cage-finished beers and use bottle conditioning, which makes beer carbonate naturally. Free tours begin with samples of about four types of beer—rumor has it they pour generously—and spend about an hour among the brewing equipment. Be sure to make an advance reservation and wear closed-toed shoes.
