Allagash Brewing Company Binny's

 

Allagash Farm to Face

HIGHLY LIMITED!

Farm to Face begins as a pale ale brewed with Allagash’s famous house yeast strain. After primary fermentation, lactobacillus, pediococcus and 6,000lbs of fresh peaches are added and allowed to quietly rest for nearly a year. The result? It has to be tasted to be believed. Juicy, tart and brimming with fresh peach flavor and aroma, this is one Allagash’s best. Don’t just take our word for it, the beer world agrees.
