Coastal CODE


 Promoting a Sustainable Ocean



Alaskan Brewing promotes sustainable business and brewing, but we also promote sustainable living.

That’s why Alaskan Brewing is donating 1% of all proceeds from Alaskan Icy Bay IPA to promote the sustainability of the Pacific Ocean and its coastlines.

We are working to protect the health of the Ocean and the waterways that lead to them.

Icy Bay IPA

Yep, it’s COLD

The surfers who ride the waves around Yakutat and Icy Bay have to be prepared for all of the extremes that come with Alaska’s maritime climate. That can mean air temperatures well below freezing, and water temperatures not too much higher. It’s sometimes called blue face surfing, and it requires a special breed of adventurer to seek out the rugged shorelines that yield the best breaks.

Alaskan Icy Bay IPA comes from the heritage of a beer brewed to endure the long ocean journey from England to India, with a bold taste, brisk bitter bite, and a citrus hoppy aroma. For the surfers who venture into the cold waters of Icy Bay, it’s a beer to match the intensity of a remote ride on a wave breaking on a solitary Alaskan beach.

Alaskan Icy Bay IPA is made from glacier-fed water and a blend of Summit, Bravo, Calypso, Apollo and Cascade hops and premium two-row pale and specialty malts. Our water originates in the 1,500-square-mile Juneau Ice Field and from more than 90 inches of rainfall each year.

Alaskan Icy Bay IPA – Making a difference, one beer at a time

Since the creation of the Coastal CODE in 2007, over 1 million pounds of trash have been removed from cleanup efforts made possible by the CODE. Beaches and waterways from Alaska to California and now the Gulf to the Midwest can all benefit from this beer with a cause.
