Responsible adults invited to imbibe beer by the boatload at the Talkeetna Brewfest

Thursday, October 4, 2012

Beer brewers from around the state and pacific northwest will be represented at the first-annual Talkeetna Brewfest on Friday night at the Sheldon Community Arts Hangar. Hosted by the award-winning Denali Brewing Company and the Northern Susitna Institute, a broad selection of suds will be available for sampling starting at six.

The event will offer a dizzying array of brewed options in four-ounce servings, while generating some funds for the Northern Susitna Institute.

Sassan Mossanen, one of the owners of Denali Brewing Company, helped organize the Brewfest, after the original idea came around several years ago. After being forced to re-schedule the event due to flooding in Talkeetna on the original date, he says its a high honor and a good cause.

Presidential Debates on the big screen at Sheldon Arts Hangar

Thursday, October 4, 2012

by Melis Coady

On Wednesday night 30 people gathered at the Sheldon Community Arts Hangar to watch the 2012 presidential candidates debate about domestic issues. The debate, streamed in high definition, elicited laughs and mixed reactions from the crowd as they heard Governor Mitt Romney battle President Obama over America’s sluggish economy, the merits of Obamacare, education reform and the nations energy policy. After the event, viewers overall were pleased that the candidates were civil, issue focused, and more clear about explaining differences in their policies. Many people in this area live without television or have data rate plans too slow to watch video footage of the candidates on the Internet. It was a great opportunity to see the candidates face to face on the big screen. (more…)
