Obviously The Beer Up Here’s blog caters to Alaskan breweries, Alaskan beers and Alaskan beer lovers, but yesterday the guys at K&L Distributors were at Humpy’s celebrating the release of Rogues “The Beard Beer” with a group of bearded beer lovers. From Rogue’s website:
“It’s here! Our latest brew Dedicated to Beards, Beard Beer is brewed with a yeast created from Brewmaster John Maier’s Beard. No Need to freak out, Brewers have used wild yeasts in beer making for centuries. John has had the same Old Growth Beard since 1983 and for over 15,000 brews, so it is no great suprise that a natural yeast ideal for brewing was discovered in his beard.”
And if you’re wondering, yes, it was delicious.
By the way, if you are wondering what Humpy’s has on tap right now, you can download The Beer Up Here and see a daily updated list. We are continuing to add more alehouses and growler bars from around the state.
