  • Local Host Bill Howell

This show is a celebration of craft brewing on the Kenai Peninsula and Alaska. Bill Howell is the author of four books on craft brewing in Alaska, teaches a beer appreciation class at Kenai Peninsula College, has been brewing and tasting craft beers for 30 years and is uncapping his vast knowledge for listeners. He’ll share news from the beer world, interviews with local brewers, reviews of beer-related books and gadgets, deep dives into beer styles, suggestions for beer and food pairings and much more.

In this month's Drinking on the Last Frontier, Bill takes a look at how breweries are coping with government mandates on social distancing, with an interview with Doug Hogue of Kenai River Brewing. Plus, a look behind the scenes at the role of distributors in Alaska, a sampling of the stout beer stye and some recommended reading to get you through quarantine.

Bill visits with brewers at Frozen Riverfest and hears from Cooper Landing Brewing on the progress of their new building. Plus, flagship beers, beer and food pairings and a review of an online beer course.
Cheers!
