Goes to Rob Tod of Allagash, who was just in the shop a couple of hours ago. I hadn’t met Rob before; he’s a super-nice guy with a very curious and defined pallate, which I discovered as we tried out a Brasserie Mont-Blanc La Verte that he noticed and asked me about.
Of course, I’m currently out of Allagash White, Dubbel and Tripel, so I felt a little like I got caught with my pants down. Then again, I do have Hugh Malone (Belgian-Style IPA), Victor, Victoria, Black, Four and Fluxus so I don’t think there can be much questioning of my support.
Overall, a very cool guy. Thanks for making my day, Rob.
