Alaska Beer Week celebrates the depth and diversity of craft beer here in the Last Frontier-and, yes, in the midst of winter. Alaska Beer Week with craft beer-centric events held throughout this magnificent state. That's Ten Days Of Craft Beer. And, as you might expect, all sorts of creativity and fun will abound.
With now almost 30 breweries and almost 30 years under our beer belly belts, Alaska's craft brewers are hitting the stage during the cold, dark days of January to showcase their finest wares. This is an exciting time of year that not only brings out year-round supportive, local beer afficianados but beer-seeking geeks from Outside. Obviously, AK Beer Week boosts our winter economy with travel and hospitality dollars but it also promotes this great state as a destination for craft beer-and all of the other local things involved in the enjoyment of craft beer: food, service, lodging, activities.
