From the early days of brewing in Alaska to the new kids on the block

Bill goes back to the early days of brewing in Alaska, in Skagway, and checks in with the newest kid on the central peninsula brewing block — Naptowne in Sterling. Plus, what's brewing these days in Girdwood, a look at the use of water in the science of brewing and a taste of the Burton ale style. 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.
