Alaskan Brewing Co. launches new beer
JUNEAU - The Alaskan Brewing Co. has launched its new Alaskan IPA beer in Juneau, selected via a process of "voting at the tap," the company announced.
"Alaskan IPA has been available as a Rough Draft in Juneau since it was first introduced at the Juneau Jazz and Classics Festival in 1999," said brewmaster and co-founder Geoff Larson.
"We're making it a year-round offering because people have been voting at the tap and we've been listening." Alaskan IPA will be available in bottles as well as on draft in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington and Wyoming.
Launch parties were held March 16 in various Juneau bars.
Alaskan IPA was described by the company as having "a fruity, citrus aroma, with a medium body and a clean, refreshing hop finish."
"What characterizes this beer is its drinkability," said operations manager Dave Wilson, who helped refine the final recipe.
"We made Alaskan IPA to appeal equally to craft beer drinkers as well as hopheads."
