American Craft Beer Week is here! Join us for fun events, awesome beer releases, great food, and a good, local vibe. All week, we’ll have a different food vendor each day in the Biergarten that will kick off our rotating summer food truck schedule. ACBW is seven-days dedicated to celebrating the ever advancing beer culture here in the U.S. – and Fairbanksans get to participate!
At this celebration, we also feature a local artist for a commemorative poster and t-shirt. This year’s artist is Jennifer Moss. Jennifer is an Fairbanksan who does beautiful art that’s inspired by our natural surroundings. We are excited to showcase her work!
Check out the whole schedule, and reserve your spots for beer pairings and classes soon!
