Although Alaska is not Ireland and even not Germany, people here know how to make and drink beer! The best time to try local beverages is during the Alaskan Beer Week, which is held in Anchorage every year in January (check dates on the official website). Ten days of the festival, an endless stream of thick craft beer, noisy pubs, and great company—this is exactly what you'll find! Of course, during the festival, various events are held too. Visitors can take a part in competitions, tastings, beer experiments, and many others activities. It seems that locals know how to make cold and dark winter days just a bit warmer!
