Let’s here it for the local team! Crossbar’s grand opening went off without a hitch. Anchorage Brewing Co. made a special IPA just for the occasion and it shares a spot on their 100% local tap line. There’s also a full bar, great service and a killer menu of well-prepared and creative dishes. There’s something for everyone on that menu. Did I mention the TVs? You have to see this place to appreciate how much hard work and love went into it. This bar is a shrine to everything hockey! This Chugiak High School Alum was touched to see their tribute to the great Coach Mac up on the wall. Soon you’ll be able to see what they have on tap in The Beer Up Here app so stay tuned and drink local – at Crossbar.


The Beer Up Here is live and for sale in the App Store!

To mark this momentous occasion, the boys are partying with the crew at 49th State Brewing Company’s Augtoberfest in Healy today. 49th State has six German-inspired beers on tap for this event on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Coincidentally, I am celebrating the fruition of all our hard work from afar in Berlin and will be promoting the app at the 17th International Berlin Beer Festival featuring about 320 breweries from 86 countries. Photos to come.

JJ has The Beer Up Here hoodies, shirts and stickers for sale, all printed in Alaska, so come get some merch!

Click here to download The Beer Up Here and use your fancy new app to decide what frosty beverage you want at 49th State!

Prost! Na zdrowie! Cheers!
