Maine’s Favorite Alcohol Now Comes In A Can
Did you know you can now get "Fat a**" in a can?
Lone Pine Brewing Company has a new product that may interest Mainers. Allen’s Coffee Breakfast Stout, gives you the Allen's Coffee, without the brandy.
The state of Maine is well known for its love of Allen's Coffee Brandy, as it one of the top alcoholic beverages of choice. You know doubt no someone who has ordered a "Fat A** In A Glass" on any given night out at a local watering hole.
A New England treasure and a true Maine tradition, Allen’s initially earned its popularity among fishermen who added a warming splash to their early morning coffee. Allen’s Coffee Flavored Brandy has become a cultural rite of passage. From Kittery to Fort Kent, it is a beverage shared between generations of Mainers.
This new product is brewed with the heritage and tradition of Allen’s Coffee Extract wrapped into a lightweight stout that is about as Maine as it gets, and the goobers from "Welcome To Maine" have decided to give their take on it.
These 100% Mainah boys, Troy and Mark, have a Facebook page and YouTube channel, called "Welcome To Maine" that pokes fun at all the things that make the state of Maine so unique to the rest of the country. They have covered it all, from red snapper hot dogs, fiddleheads, whoopie pies, ticks, Italian sandwiches, Stephen King's house, Paul Bunyan, and even Marden's..
In reality, it turns out that Tory and Mark are actually comedians, James Theberge and Ian Stuart. You can see them perform regularly at The Maine Comedy All-Stars shows, and at various places across the state.
