February is a month where you can pour your heart out to the one you love; alternatively, it’s a perfect opportunity to pour a Fruited Sour Ale. Fruited Sours can be a little intense and definitively complex, but still completely satisfying (not unlike most relationships). For classic beer drinkers, the first sip of a Fruited Sour is more like trying a cocktail than sipping an IPA; Fruited Sours demand your attention in drinking. Their unique flavor profiles and ruby-red and golden hues make them perfect for special occasions- including Valentine’s Day. This month, look no further than Anchorage Brewing Company Fruited Sour, Scream, to celebrate the day of love.
Alaska needs to be on everyone’s travel list. One region in particular packs a bunch of the distinct traits that makes Alaska such a unique and special place into one area. With delicious and freshly sourced salmon and halibut on menus throughout the area and the home of the Kenai Fjords National Park, the Kenai Peninsula is a where you can experience a truly authentic Alaskan adventure!
Alaska has a beautiful way of humbling and grounding you.
There is a specific feeling when one steps foot in the last frontier. It is a culmination of the many stunning hallmarks found in Alaska that aren’t attainable in many other places.
A lot of people have the wrong impression of Alaska. As I sat underneath the sunlight at a time that most places would be pitch black, I poured myself a beer from the appropriately named Midnight Sun Brewing Company and realized the fact that the state is barely glanced upon as a destination for beer lovers from the lower 48.
Sleeping Lady Brewing Company is nestled in the heart of downtown Anchorage. In the winter, it’s a gathering place for locals and hosts a number of comedy shows and other events in its large first-floor theater. In summertime, it doubles as a tourist trap where locals and out-of-towners mingle on the spacious sun-soaked patio upstairs.

Being born a water sign, I have an affinity for things that remind me of my oceanic roots. So, it is only fitting that I was drawn to Midnight Sun Brewing Company‘s Sockeye Red IPA: The Last Frontier’s characterful brewery serving New York as it’s only East Coast distributor. As I was sipping a snifter full of this calming and fresh ale this past weekend, I felt it only right to share my flow of joy with the craft beer community
