Alaskan Winter Ale

Alaskan Winter Ale

Posted in BEER, DRINK By

True, people in the lower 48 know cold. North Dakota, Minnesota we’re looking at you. But in parts of Alaska, they get down to the negative 70s come wintertime. While Juneau may be spared the worst of it, it’s still a part of Alaska and therefore a place we consider properly familiar with ways to fight off the chill of winter. Independent craft brew company Alaskan Brewing is still owned and operated by Alaskans, in Alaska. And every year they offer their Winter Ale.

It’s an English Olde Ale made from glacier-fed water and local spruce tips. While it’s rich and malty, it’s not an overly dark ale like many winter editions. With just the right amount of alcohol (6.4%) to start a fire in the belly, consider this a gift from the 49th state to warm up rest of us. Even Arizonans. Learn more at Alaskan Brewing.
