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.

Welcome Growler Bay Brewing, in Valdez, to the Alaska craft beer family. Plus, interviews with Barnaby Brewing Co. in Juneau and Double Shovel Cider Co. in Anchorage and a return to the simple pleasure (but not-so-simple to brew) pilsner. Cheers to surviving 2020!
