Alaskan White Ale Splashes Into Western States
It has been less than a month since Alaskan Brewing released their newest year-round bottled brew but Alaskan White is already making a big splash in Alaska and the western states. “We knew we had a really good beer on our hands with Alaskan White,” says Alaskan Sales Operations Manager Jon Blakley, “but we can hardly brewl it fast enough to keep it on shelves here in the Pacific Northwest.”
Linda, a fan from Alaska writes, “I’m not a beer drinker, never have been, but we bought a 6-pack las weekend ‘just to try it,’ We’ve since gone back and bought a case–it’s delicious!”
Alaskan White is a crisp wheat ale brewed with spices and now available throughout Alaska and nine western states.
The label for the new brew features the artwork of renowned Pacific Northwest artist Jon Fehringer. Known for his ability to capture the unique scenes of Southeast Alaska, he applied his technique of airbrush and opaque watercolor to depict a polar bear traversing the icy landscape of the Arctic coast.
“Each of our labels features an authentically Alaskan scene, from the orca breaching in a Southeast Alaska sunset to the surfer riding a wave in the shadow of Mount St. Elias,” explains Alaskan Brand Manager Cindy Burchfield. “Our new brew toasts the polar bear and its extraordinary place at the top of the world.”
