A Note on This Beer
Most people know the Last Frontier for its sprawling forests, treacherous glaciers, and unrepressed wildlife. But craft fans? They know it for the insanely good beer!
Because there, amongst 17 of the highest peaks in America and the largest national rainforest in the world (the Tongass), a brewery quietly creates some of the best beer in the country — it’s Anchorage Brewing!
To craft their insanely juiced-up Wasted NEIPA, the renowned Alaskan crew used loads of Phantasm Powder. The powder’s made from freeze-dried Sauvignon Blanc grape skins, which contain a lot of thiols — the same stuff that produces the fruity characteristics in hops! Sure enough, this potent ingredient accentuates the plush flavors of the brew’s Sabro and Mosaic Hop profile.
Crack open a can, and aromas of freshly sliced peaches and apricots swirl on the nose. Take a sip, and nectarous swells of tropical coconut, ripe pineapple, and plump blueberry erupt on the palate!
Miss your shot at Anchorage’s Wasted IPA, and you might have to journey to the Last Frontier for another. Although considering how fervent those hophead locals are, who knows if there will be any left to sip by the time you get there!
Anchorage is one of Thrillist’s Best Breweries in America!
