Just got back from a whirlwind tour of south eastern Alaska. So I saw about .0000001% of it. Anyway, Alaska has a lot of beer. Most places we went to eat had many beers on tap, which was good. However, once I looked at the list I noticed that there were a bunch of IPAs, several beers with fruit and other unwanted additives, a few ambers, and (usually) a single stout. First, what's with the over-popularity of IPAs? I'm not a fan of 12 oz of Centennial per 5 gallons of wort. The ambers were drinkable but not stellar. The stout (Pipeline was the only one I had) was pretty good. Where were the brown ales and Scotch ales and such? They had a bunch of Belgians but I don't like those either. Don't tell me I'm too persnickety because I know that already. Anyway, a place with that much beer can't be all bad.
