History

The origins of oatmeal stouts can be traced back hundreds of years, and were first promoted by breweries for their “health benefits” and “soothing properties”. Alaskan Oatmeal Stout was first brewed as a Rough Draft for our customers in Alaska, then part of our year-round product lineup in the fall of 1998. This tribute to that stout is sure to warm even the chilliest of Alaskan winters.

The Story Behind the Label

The Alaska Railroad stretches from Fairbanks to Seward, and was for many years one of the only ways to access many of Alaska’s remote communities, as well as to deliver vital goods and supplies from the coast to the interior. Steam Engine 557 could be found chugging through along the Alaska Railroad starting in 1944, hauling freight, supplies, and passengers north towards Fairbanks for a new future, or south toward the coast for seaward adventures. The last steam engine on the Alaska Railroad, Engine 557 was retired in 1962 and serves as a reminder of the rugged journey many Alaskans took in finding their northward homes. Engine 557 is currently being restored to its former glory by a team of volunteers. Check out this site to help restoration efforts.
