25th Anniversary Alaskan Perseverance Ale


25th Anniversary Alaskan Perseverance Ale

Alaskan has been brewing in the remote coastal town of Juneau, Alaska for the last 25 incredible years. To celebrate this tradition, the Brew Crew created Alaskan Perseverance Ale; a Russian Imperial Stout brewed with Alaska birch syrup, fireweed honey and alder-smoked malt Ė a tribute to all that makes Alaskan beers truly Alaskan.
 

      
STYLE
Alaskan Perseverance Ale is a Russian Imperial Stout. This style was chosen to celebrate our 25th anniversary of brewing on the Last Frontier in our coastal home of Juneau, Alaska.

FLAVOR PROFILE
This complex and malt forward Imperial Stout is brewed with an array of local ingredients and flavors to add dimension and celebrate Alaskanís history and home. Alaska birch syrup from Wasilla lends a deep, almost tart character to the dark malt profile, while fireweed honey from Delta Junction 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.

HISTORY
To celebrate their quarter-century milestone, the Alaskan Brew Crew wanted to create a beer that was big, bold and brewed with ingredients from Alaska that could be enjoyed fresh or cellared to be brought out to remember the anniversary for years to come. The Russian heritage still present throughout our state make this Russian Imperial Stout a tribute to all that makes our beers truly Alaskan.

INGREDIENTS
This limited edition Imperial Stout is brewed with glacier-fed water, birch syrup from the Alaska Birch Syrup Co., fireweed honey from Alaskan Bee Apiaries, brown sugar and an array of different malts including malted oats and a dash of our world famous alder-smoked malt.

RECOMMENDATIONS
The sturdy flavors in Alaskan Perseverance Ale pair well with rich and savory proteins ranging from fresh oysters to wild game meats. Custards, dark chocolate truffles, New York cheesecake and other creamy desserts bring out the the sweeter notes of fireweed honey, oats and brown sugar.

THE STORY BEHIND THE LABEL
Brewing in a remote town with no roads leading in or out has never been easy but, like the turn-of-the-century breweries of Juneauís Gold Rush who overcame all odds to serve the thirsty miners of the local, and appropriately named, Perseverance Mine, Alaskanís founders and employees continue to persevere. The connection between brewing and mining in Alaska goes back to when the brewers of early Juneau stored their ales in the dark and cool tunnels of area mines. The Perseverance Mine closed over 60 years ago, but the historic Perseverance Trail is now one of Juneauís favorite hiking trails and provides a reminder of the founding history and pioneering spirit that carries on at the Alaskan Brewery today.
