Alaskan Stout was originally brewed as a Rough Draft for our customers in Alaska. The popularity of the Stout allowed it to become the Brewery's fourth year-round product in the fall of 1998.
Alaskan Stout is made from glacier-fed water and a generous blend of European and Pacific Northwest hop varieties and premium two-row and specialty malts. Our water originates in the 1,500 square-mile Juneau Ice Field and from the more than 90 inches of rainfall Juneau receives each year.
Alaskan Stout is well matched with clams, oysters and pork tenderloin. For a special treat, pour over vanilla ice cream or serve with chocolate.
With only one person per square mile, the State of Alaska is one of the few places where a person can truly get away from it all. Wilderness cabin living in Alaska offers fresh fish and berries just outside your door, but requires complete self-reliance as your nearest neighbor is likely a moose or brown bear. Celebrate both the bounty and the independence of cabin life on the Last Frontier with the rich, full-bodied character of an Alaskan Stout.
To flavor his beer and prevent scurvy, Captain Cook brewed with the "tender new growth of spruce trees” during his 1777 voyage in search of the Northwest Passage. Spruce tips are an excellent source of vitamin C.
