It was a crystal clear Autumn day at the 2013 Talkeetna Brewfest. The festival is a benefit event for the Northern Susitna Institute, a collaborative nonprofit educational organization based in Talkeetna. The small town north of Anchorage is a welcoming, tight-knit community. The festival felt like a small get together of good friends in a cozy cabin, complete with a band jamming away in the loft. A fine selection of local craft breweries were on hand for the event including King Street, 49th State, Broken Tooth, Kenai River, Denali, HooDoo, Alaskan, Arkose, Silver Gultch, Glacier, Kassik’s, Midnight Sun, Anchorage and more. A great time was had by all. -JJ
We just added the 300th beer to the app! The Broken Tooth Beg, Yarrow or Steal – a saison with hand-picked Alaskan yarrow and juniper berries. Our initial release included 255 beers. So we’ve added 45 beers in the 35 days the app has been live. That’s an average of more than one beer a day. If you buy the app, you get all those beers and a growing database for the price of a beer. Thanks for the support!
Join us at Moose’s Tooth in Anchorage today starting at 6 pm. We are selling merch, demoing the app (on sale TODAY ONLY for 2.99) and drinking some 17er – Moose’s Tooth’s 17th Anniversary beer. The pale ale-style brew is being added to the app as I write this!
From Tyler Jones at Broken Tooth Brewing:
“17er (Extra Pale Ale) Old enough to drive but still too young to vote… Happy 17th Moose’s Tooth! This year’s Anniversary Ale walks the line between Pale Ale and IPA; too big to be considered a Pale but not quite hoppy enough for an IPA by today’s standards. This beer pours a light bronze and has a solid malt structure to it. Four different hops, including our favorite lemony experimental variety, provide notes ranging from spicy to floral that balance the palette without overpowering it. Brewed by Sean Heyer OG 1.061, ~ 30 IBU, ABV 6.2%”
In addition, JJ will appear on Channel 2 news at 5 and 10 pm today, and on 94.7 fm radio at 8 pm, so tune in!
Cheers, hope to see you soon!
