Product Review: Allagash Coolship Red

Brewing a beer in 2008, only to let it sit around in barrels and take up space in brewery storage until 2011 doesn’t make much financial sense but it sure does make a beer taste incredible. Coolship Red is one of those beers you want to drink once or twice, enjoy with a friend and then reminisce about it sometime down the road. Drinking any more than that, completely strips away that initial “wow” factor the beer presents when you drink it. The label, in true Allagash fashion, is simple but elegant.
