Drink it all in—the beer and the scenery. You’re sitting around a campfire on a remote Alaskan island. Stars sparkle above the glowing flames as you’re trading off bites of freshly grilled halibut with sips of craft beer no one has ever tasted. You took a plane, a boat and a kayak to get here, and there’s still plenty of exploration to come. But this evening, you’re simply enjoying good company and listening to a story of inspiration in a place that could only be called the Great Outdoors. With us on this seven-day Alaskan adventure is Scott Lawrence, owner of Portland’s award-winning Breakside Brewery. This is more than just a trip: it’s a celebration of a decade of amazing beer and the spirit of venturing into the unknown with a craft brewer by our side.
If you crave adventure, breathing in crisp glacial air, crossing the Icy Strait by boat and conquering the great 49th state, this trip is for you. From island camping to the coastal capital, we’ll hike, kayak and fly across America’s wild backyard wonderland. Alaska’s motto is “North to the Future.” Join us and we’ll go upward and onward.
