Single Engine Red brewed by the Denali Brewing in Alaska

Single Engine Red brewed by the Denali Brewing Company in Talkeetna, Alaska          

For years local air taxis have ferried mountain climbers to the base camp on the south side of Denali, flown flight seeing tours over “The High One,” and dropped off backpackers and other outdoor enthusiasts in all corners of the Alaska backcountry. Denali Brewing Company draws the inspiration for its red ale from Talkeetna’s rich aviation history. Brewed with five choice American and European malts and just enough hops for balance, we hope you find Single Engine Red a suitable compliment to your next Alaskan adventure, whether in the air or on the ground. 5.6% ABV | 46 IBUs

Beer Review from Beer Advocate
Appearance: Darkish amber-orange hue; this could almost qualify as a nut brown ale in color. Body is haze-free with a pretty strong effervescence and a finger of pillowy tan foam with good retention. Pretty attractive!

Aroma: Nutty, bready and a little biscuity with a bit of sweetness underneath. Again, we could be looking at a nut brown here. It's nice, though.

Taste: Sweetish with a lot of bready and biscuity character. Hops are earthy with a fairly high bitterness. Not bad for the style, but a little too biscuity for my taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with a good level of carbonation and a pretty decent creaminess.

Overall: This is a good beer for the style and is pretty drinkable. Definitely worth a try.

The Story of Denali Brewing Company
Denali Brewing Company is a locally owned microbrewery located in Talkeetna, Alaska, in the heart of the upper Susitna Valley. Denali Brewing Company began as two dreams.

Ever since coming to Alaska from the fertile craft beer grounds of Oregon in 1996, general manager Sassan Mossanen just knew that Talkeetna was thirsty for a brewery of its own. During the ensuing years, he made several attempts at filling the obvious gap. Along the way he also built his own cabin up the tracks from town, established a successful construction company, and found time to homebrew on the side.

All the while, brewer Boe Barnett was living 250 miles north of Talkeetna, in the Goldstream Valley outside Fairbanks, Alaska. He was teaching English at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, writing and publishing poetry, and brewing more beer than any one person should ever be allowed to consume on his own. He too had made several attempts at opening a local brewery. Ideas ranged from brewing in a little red cabin next to the main dog mushing trail through the heart of Goldstream Valley, to a more conventional operation located in the city’s industrial zone. The idea of brewery in a hip little town like Talkeetna, however, was too good to pass up.

The current incarnation of Denali Brewing Company was created in December of 2007, when the two partners met over a keg of Boe’s homebrewed pilsner. Sassan spoke of his passion for the community of Talkeetna and how its proud, independent minded citizens had, for years, been yearning for a brewery of their own. Boe spoke of his desire to bridge the gap between beer geeks and regular folks who just like to drink beer.

Fast forward to late winter 2009. Boe and his family now call Talkeetna home. Denali Brewing Company has found its own home on Main Street in downtown Talkeetna. The dream of bringing craft beer to the northern Susitna Valley is being turned into a reality. We look forward to sharing our dream with you during your next visit to Talkeetna, Denali National Park, or any of the other world-class attractions south-central Alaska has to offer.
