Don't drink this beer unless you were born in Alaska, have been there or love the place.
This is your ONE and only Alaskan brew. Your opportunity to have Eskimo friends over. Or people you froze your ass off with... To watch a winter game and remember the good old days... Back when Alaskan Amber was THE beer to drink. And then, when the nostalgia hits them, pop a classic amber for each.
Jump in the hot tub and remember that once-in-a-lifetime experience: "True wilderness and cold". A vacation, a fishing trip... watching a bald eagle for the first time... throwing rocks or hitting pucks... even getting your car engine to start when it's too damn cold. If you love an approachable beer this one is for you. A balanced and smooth beer, fermented slow and colder than most ales. Malty and long on the palate, with enough hop backing to make a well balanced, amber colored “alt” style beer.
Classic Amber: Water, hops, yeast and alder-smoked malts Voted “Best Beer in the Nation” in the 1988 Great American Beer Festival Consumer Poll. 12 gold medals since 1987! But if you need to be sold... this one is not for you.
Every beer box travels by air or sea. There are no roads connecting Juneau, Alaska to the Lower 48 or even the rest of the state. Each evening fishermen from all walks of life return to a safe harbor and close the day with a cold Alaskan Amber.
The Manifestation of Alaska: When you love Alaska so much that you refuse to leave... you get resourceful. Picture this... You hear stories about 1700's gold rush. Rumors about explorer's favorite brew: local beer. You dust a local recipe off and detailed instructions on how to brew it... You look around and see 1,500 square-miles of ice fields...
What do you do?
You start a brewery. At least that's what Marcy and Geoff Larson did back in 1986. Geoff, Marcy and 10 volunteers’ hand-packed and shipped 253 cases of Alaskan Amber.
Rumors have it they started with 260 boxes. Call it "quality control" 12 hours of work, 10 volunteers... you do the math...

The fact that craftshack stocked this particular brew was the main reason I initially signed up. This is a perfectly balanced amber ale, with a sweet malty taste that has just enough hop to keep it from becoming syrupy. The perfect beer for a Spring or Fall night on the deck with friends, or an accompaniment to a fine BBQ meal. Throw in a good cigar and we are talking utter perfection.
I haven't ordered from Craft Shack since 2015, and then I only ordered Alaskan Brewing Company beers. This, my children, is some kind of "smooth nectar" Would recommend it to anyone in search of New Brews.
