Alaska. Craft beers in the spotlight during the Cheers ans Beers festival
If you like beer and country music, Cheers ans Beers is for you. This event will take place on August 29 during the “State Fair” in Alaska (a festival which aims to gather the different know-how present in Alsaka). The principle of this event is simple, to highlight the local breweries of the State through a tasting of craft beer. A tasting that will take place just before the concert of country singer Aaron Watson.
The price of a ticket to participate in this tasting is 1$ (less than 1€). After tasting the proposed beers, it will be possible for you to buy a cup filled with your favorite craft beer for 20$ (approximately 17€). In addition, all Aaron Watson concertgoers will receive five free samples of homemade beer upon presentation of their tickets. However, you should be aware that there are limited reserves on site, which is why it is advisable to visit early.
