Commercial Description
Extra Special Bitter Ale. Alaskan ESB is darker and hoppier and is brewed and fermented at different temperatures than our popular Alt-style Amber. It has an exquisite copper color derived from Crystal malt and an aggressive, yet pleasant hop character.
Malty with roasted overtones, Alaskan ESB has a crisp finish resulting from the use of premium Northwest hops.
Alaskan ESB is made from glacier-fed water and a generous blend of the finest quality European and Pacific Northwest hop varieties and premium two-row and specialty malts. Our water originates in the 1,500 square-mile Juneau Ice Field and from the more than 90 inches of rainfall we receive each year.
Complements spicy Asian and Mexican food, robust soups, stews and other winter fare. Ideal with wild game.
