Episode 12: After Two Beers with Rob Tod of Allagash Brewing Co.
1 day ago
In the twelfth episode of After Two Beers, John Holl sits down with Rob Tod, founder of Allagash Brewing Co.
The two discuss how Tod moved from keg washer to brewery owner, and how he came to appreciate and brew beers in the Belgian tradition. Tod talks about some of the beers that influenced him along the way, including one in particular that inspired him to brew Allagash White, a beer that now accounts for around 75 percent of the brewery's production.
Tod explains why he continues to draw inspiration from Belgium, a country every Allagash employee who reaches the five-year mark gets to visit. These visits help to create a culture of innovation at Allagash, not just for brewers but for all of its 120 employees.
Tod also discusses the necessity of such innovation, as well as one of the biggest issues facing today's small and independent breweries.
