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.
As a preview of what is in store this Friday night, Mossanen offered this mouth-watering summary of some of the beers scheduled to be poured at the festival:
