Well as I mentioned here I have been slowly wading through my hamper of American craft beers. I have poured at least six of them straight down the drain! But I found a real treat tonight all the way from Alaska and the Alaskan Brewing Company: the Alaskan Amber. Rolling in with an Original Gravity of 1,054 and a 5.3% ABV it is an immediate winner with this Fuller’s ESB lover. I’ve only had the one bottle and so things could change but the next time I’m at Specs (tomorrow, in preparation for the big one) I’ll track some more down. I was beginning to think this great nation had nothing new to offer when it came to local brews. I should have known Sarah was smiling for a reason!
