Introducing Anchorage Brewing Company

Gabe Fletcher started brewing at Midnight Sun Brewing in Anchorage, Alaska in 1998. When Shelton Brothers met him in 2008 at the Great Alaskan Beer and Barleywine festival, he had begun to work with wild yeast and barrel-aging at Midnight Sun and was happy to share some of our bottles of Jolly Pumpkin. When he called about a year ago to say that he was starting his own brewery, we told him that we'd love to help him sell his beers. All of Anchorage Brewing beers will be aged in oak barrels and fermented with brettanomyces yeast.

We're pleased to announce that the first release has made it down from the cool North and is now available in New York. Look for 750ml corked bottles of Whiteout Wit at your favorite store. Whiteout Wit is a 6.5% Belgian-style witbier brewed with Sorachi Ace hops; spiced with lemon peel, coriander, and black peppercorn; fermented with Belgian yeast in the tank; aged in French oak Chardonnay barrels with brettanomyces; and finally bottle-conditioned with a third yeast strain.

Look for Love Buzz Saison and Bitter Monk Double IPA this fall.
