A ghoulish crowd gathers to celebrate in 2015.

Four years ago on Halloween, we opened our doors to a great, enthusiastic crowd who waited patiently for delicious, fresh, local beer.

Candy pairings, too!

Monday, October 31st, is our four-year Anniversary, which will no doubt be fun since it is on Halloween. We’re not typically open on Mondays, but this is a special occasion, so we’ve gotta open those doors.

We have some treats planned, and if you can make it in, please do! At 4pm, we will tap our highly-anticipated fruit beer, our Anniversary Pumpkin Ale.

We’ll hold drawings for great door prizes every half-hour starting at 3:30 for those who celebrate with us in costume. Other treats for adults will be $1 Stout or Pumpkin Ale Floats. For the kids, and kids at heart, we’ll have spiced cupcakes by local confectioner A&K Cupcakes and of course, loads of candy up for grabs. We’ll have a Limerick contest going on Facebook starting Monday October 24 – the winners will read their limericks aloud to the crowd at 7pm. Grand champ will take great prizes including two tickets to the UA Museum’s “Chefs’ Challenge at the Museum” event on November 11.

Hope to see you in the taproom and thank you for your support. Here’s to many, many more years together!

PROST and have a Happy Halloween!


Full-bodied, Complex, Spiced. “Pumpkin pie in a glass,” said a few people last year.
As the days get shorter, the temperature drops, and the snow begins to accumulate, nothing warms the Fairbanks soul better than a slice of creamy pumpkin pie, topped with a dollop of whip cream.

Especially if this delicious treat comes in beer form. Our Pumpkin Ale is an old Ale brewed with cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and allspice and over 200-pounds of locally-grown gourds from area farmers.

The rich aromas from the pumpkin and light spice additions complement the rich malty base of this deep orange colored beer. Upon first sip, an up-front spice is immediately supported by a creamy, complex sweetness. The spices give way to rich maltiness before the beer finishes cleanly, but full-bodied.

It’s a perfect beer for Fall, and a great celebration ale as we ease into the holidays.
