    Hey everyone, just in case you are planning a trip to the last frontier for Great Alaska Beer and Barleywine Festival in January, I wanted to let you know that I just submitted a ton of Alaska Beer Week events. There will be more to come. But as BA no longer has regional beer guides, my submissions need to be approved by someone other than myself now, so I don't know when they will actually appear on the calendar. In the meantime, you can see all the events at
    More are being added, so stay tuned to BA's calendar or bookmark the AKBeerWeek link.

    ciao for now,
    Julie in AK

    Looking forward to it. Already have my eyes on a couple different events. Missed most of last year's so hoping to make up for it some this year. MSBC/Sullivan's and Arkose/Rusty's look good.

    The events I submitted still haven't been added to the BA calendar, but keep checking for additional events. They are being added regularly. There are several regular events that haven't been added yet, but I know they are annual things, so keep checking.

    I've just added a whole bunch more events to the BA calendar for Alaska Beer Week, but you know they take a while to show up on the calendar, so in the meantime you can go here: And check out the events page for everything going on during Alaska Beer Week to better help you plan your trip to Great Alaska Beer and Barleywine Festival! The first events start next week! Thursday, Jan 10!

    Can hardly wait for the GABBF! I'll be coming up again and staying with my bro-in-law "AKFaust". I will once again be festooned with kilt and moose hat :0D

    I was planning on coming down, but my work trip got cancelled, so I guess I'll just have to stay up here and drink more hoodoo beers....

    OMGosh! So many more events just added to AKBeerWeek! You can check out what's been added so far to the BA calendar, but for the latest additions check out
    There are events in Juneau and Fairbanks for those that cannot make it to the ANC area for the festivities. I am so excited to see the addition of so many new venues and events this year! There is a variety of dinners, tastings, some are $$$$ and others are very reasonable! Something for everyone!

    Although the Snowgoose held a beer dinner last night that unofficially kicked off Alaska Beer Week, today marks the actual kick-off. And today's event is at MSBC. Check it out:
    I don't know about anyone else, but I'm very excited to try their new Belgian-style barleywine, 3000 which will be tapped (firkin) at 5p tonight! Also 2013 Arctic Devil is being tapped today in the loft at 11a. This place will fill up quickly so get their early if you can!

    There is an event today in ANC, but as it's not beer, it's mead, it isn't posted on the BA calendar. However, if you are in the FBX area you can check out this beer event at HooDoo Brewing:
    And if you want info on the mead event just shoot me a message and I'll get it to you.
