Giant beer conglomerates under the micro-brewer-scope

Maren Bruin for NPR

On this episode of Drinking on the Last Frontier, Bill interviews local craft brewery owners Zack Lanphier (Bleeding Heart Brewing in Palmer) and Eric Slater (Seward Brewing Co.), discusses bock style beer and the impacts of major beer corporations imitating and buying independent breweries. The good news is, all craft breweries in Alaska are still independent craft breweries. That's worth a cheers!

Bill Howell is the author of four books on craft brewing in Alaska, taught a beer appreciation class at Kenai Peninsula College and has been brewing and tasting craft beers for 30 years. On Drinking on the Last Frontier, Bill uncaps his vast knowledge for listeners, sharing news from the beer world, interviewing Alaska brewers, doing deep dives into beer styles and much more.
