Albuquerque's Kodiak Moment

People have been clamoring for years about getting Alaskan Brewing Company beers in Albuquerque. Beginning September 9th, they'll get their wish. Alaskan IPA, White, Freeride American Pale Ale and the Amber will be available in bottles and on tap. Alaskan Amber has always been kind of special to me ever since I was 16, when my grandfather brought me back an Alaskan Amber t-shirt from a cruise up there. That has absolutely nothing to do with why you should want to buy Alaskan beers, but it helped form the problem drinker before you today. The four beers we are getting are Alaskan's core brands, and I'm not sure if we will see others like their million time gold medal winning Smoked Porter or the Winter Ale brewed with spruce tips. Maybe if we buy enough of the core beers we will be rewarded.
