Alaska's brewery in Juneau is worth a day trip with a few more days for recovery.

I like craft beer and Alaska Amber is very high on my list. The economics of shipping AA from SE Alaska to the lower 48 has always perplexed me, bottled beer being as heavy as it is for shipping and then having to compete on price with Washington and Oregon beers. They obviously have it figured out.

The commerce between Southeast and Seattle is carried by barges on which weight is largely irrelevant. And given that beer and recyclables are the only exports...well, there is all that oil...anyway the southbound traffic is mostly empty containers, so it's likely they can negotiate a pretty good rate.

Icy Strait brewery in Hoonah is worth a stop if you are in the area.

The brewery in Juneau, will give free beer to visitors. The older crowd of Juneau locals, still drink a lot of Vitamin R! Rainier..

Well, I was kinda counting on Al from Ketchikan to step up with the answer, but before it went large scale and regional, that little brewery in Juneau made a red ale called "Chinook".

For a few years thereafter you could demonstrate your bona fides by saying, "gimme a Chinook," but a new generation of bartenders have no idea.

I'm going to try it this summer .......Gimme a Chinook. We are normally around Craig most of the summer. I'll see if they are tuned in over there.

If the barkeep is under age 50, you'll probably just get a blank look, but you can show him this:

I may get there by the end of the summer. I'd like to, but it will depend on the winds allowing me to go north from May until September.

We will begin our transit of the Panama Canal tomorrow.

I will be cruising SE Alaska in a 34 ft sailboat this summer. I purchase her in April. Anticipate calling her Oz. She will start in Ketchikan then homeport in Wrangell. Contact korbey@mvdarlin.com.

Not another Oz in SE! It will especially confuse all our friends as Wrangell is so close to our homeport of Petersburg. I do claim rights as I'm from Kansas!

AP- You give me too much credit!!!In my younger days, (High school here in Ketchikan) the deal was to find a 'well lubricated adult' willing to purchase a case of "Oly" beer for a couple of eager boys. Story: When the red light started flashing, the bottles flew out all windows. The "well lubricated adult of the moment" asleep on the rear floor boards, and three accosted boys all transported to the local retaining center. After a bit, one of my cohorts asked the jailer if we could post bail. "Yes, $25.00 each" said the jailer. "Could I (my friend for life) asked my friend be let out to obtain the bail money?" "Sure" said the jailer. Where upon my friend headed to the 'Sourdough' bar and cashed a bogus check for $100.00 on the faith the bar tender knew his father,(He knew all of our fathers!!). So we were released. The next chapter was our day in court.
Asked to plead, I and my other associate other than my 'Friend for Life' pleaded guilty. Fine to be paid? Our bail funds.
My 'Friend for Life' a star on the high school basketball team destined for a State Championship, before he could plead, had the magistrate a HUGE basketball fan, asked for a recess. Following the recess, 'My Friend for Life" pleaded 'Not Guilty'. He received his bail money back.

'Friend for Life' later introduced my wife to me through a 'Blind Date' That is another story. The chapters of that story is currently at 59 years, but who is counting!!
