HAINES — As Rosie Ainza finished handing medals to the winners of the 23rd annual Great Alaska Craft Beer and Homebrew Festival, she was confronted with a surprise.
Her boyfriend, Logan Lott, had climbed onto the Klondike Stage at the Southeast Alaska State Fairgrounds and sank to one knee. In his outstretched hands he held a ring.
The question was obvious. So was the answer.
Three years ago, Ainza and Lott met at the Haines festival. It was only fitting to propose there.
“It’s our anniversary place,” Lott said. “It’s something special.”
