The Story Behind the Label
The Tongass National Forest surrounds Alaskan Brewing’s hometown of Juneau, and in that forest is Admiralty Island, just to the west, which is home to the largest concentration of bears anywhere in the world. An estimated 1,700 Alaskan Brown Bears live on this island, at an average of one bear per square mile. Because of the abundance of food including berries, deer and a large number of salmon streams, and due to the protection of the Admiralty Island National Monument which covers most of the island, the bear population continues to thrive and has remained relatively constant for centuries. The beauty of the island continues to attract campers, and many a morning brew has been interrupted by a curious Ursus arctos alascensis.
