At Arkose Brewery today, glasses were raised at exactly 5:57 p.m. to toast those working to restore Alaska’s last steam engine. For the fundraiser, Arkose brewed a special one-time run beer, aptly named 557 Revival ale. A limited run of 100 special label Arkose 557 Revival ale growlers and pint glasses were awarded to donors of $100 or more.The donations will be matched by the Rasmuson Foundation. Thanks, as always, to June and Stephen Gerteisen for their help. Stop by Arkose in Palmer for a tasty summer ale while it’s still available!
