Husky IPA Photo Contest

Enter to win great prizes for you, your pup, and your local animal shelter!

Life in Alaska is about much more than just the place – it’s about the creatures we share it with, too. Join us in celebrating our third year of the Ales for Tails program and the extraordinary bond Alaskans share with our dogs with our Husky IPA Dog Photo Contest! To enter, snap a photo of your dog on its best Alaskan adventure! We’d love to see Alaskan beer or beer gear in your photo, but it’s not necessary for entry. Then, use the hashtag #alaskanbeer when posting on Instagram or Twitter, or post directly to our Facebook page. The grand prize is $500 to the local nonprofit animal shelter of your choice and an Alaskan Brewing dog cabin.

Winners will be voted on weekly (by likes) on our Facebook page. We’ll have weekly prize package winners throughout the month of April, with one grand prize winner. Contest opens April 1.

Since it was launched in 2017, Ales for Tails has raised a total of $58,423 for local nonprofit animal shelters. Last year, $35,500 was raised, and we hope to top that in 2019! To participate in other Ales for Tails events in your area, check out our Facebook page.
