35th Anniversary Ale

This complex and malt forward Imperial Stout is brewed with an array of local ingredients and flavors to add dimension and celebrate Alaskan’s history and home. Alaska birch syrup from Kahiltna Birchworks lends a deep, almost tart character to the dark malt profile, while wildflower honey adds a delicate sweetness and floral notes to the aroma and finish. The slight addition of our in-house alder-smoked malt alludes to the distinctive roasted flavor of turn-of-the-century malting practices, without overpowering the more subtle flavors of this dynamic anniversary brew.

A deep, dense beer with an intricate array of aromas and flavors, aged on toasted French oak to add further complexity. 

History

Imperial stout was originally brewed by the major porter brewers in London as an “extra stout” porter for export to the Baltic countries and Russia from the late 18th century onward. It gained its title as a drink supplied to the Russian imperial court of Czarina Catherine the Great.

The Story Behind the Label

This recipe, originally released as the Perseverance Ale, now resurfaces every time the brewery celebrates a 5-year milestone. The decision to brew a Russian Imperial Stout is an homage to Alaska’s Russian heritage, created using local ingredients to further bring forth a beverage with uniquely Alaskan roots. Specially brewed to celebrate our 35th Anniversary as one of the nation’s leading craft brewers.
