We're celebrating May Day and the return of Alaskan Summer Ale
in stores and bars near you, as well as onboard Alaska Airlines, Princess Cruises and Holland America.
The first cruise ships come into port in Juneau on May 6. There's no better way for visitors to get a taste of Alaska than with Alaskan beer, and our award-winning summer seasonal is a very popular choice. The German kolsch-style beer has a softly malted palate that is balanced with the clean freshness of hops that pair especially well with Alaskan seafood.
Once people get a taste for the easy drinkability of this summer seasonal, they clamor for more. So for the first time ever we're making Alaskan Summer Ale available in all our markets: Alaska, Arizona, California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Washington and Wyoming.
Consider this a May Day gift from the Alaskan Brew Crew. Cheers! Alaskan Summer Ale Style:
Based on the traditional style of Kölsch beer brewed in Cologne, Germany.
Alaskan Summer Ale balances a softly malted palate with the clean freshness of Hallertauer hops. In the tradition of the style, neither overpowers the other. Both hops and malt come together to refresh and renew the palate. The straw-gold color and easy drinkability are an enjoyable way to celebrate summer.
