Outdoor, in-person beer festivals return after the dark year of COVID, including the 10th annual Kenai Peninsula Beer Festival. Bill gets an update from KP beerfest organizer Matt Pyhala and muses on what makes a good beer festival (hint: quality, not quantity). Plus, interviews with Girdwood Brewing and Darcy Kniefel, with the 2021 Alaska Craft Brew Festival, on July's Drinking on the Last Frontier. Cheers!
On this month’s Drinking on the Last Frontier, aging beer in whisky barrels is a great way to add class to craft brews. Plus, Bill checks in on the new location for Bearpaw River Brewing Co. in Wasilla, the new construction for Grace Ridge Brewing Co. in Homer and the newcomer brewery to the peninsula’s beer scene — Stoney Creek Brewhouse in Seward.
