Welcome to the GNBC
Anchorage Alaska's biggest, best, and only homebrew club!
The Prez Sez, by Kevin Sobolesky - June, 2016
Greetings brewing friends,
I hope you are all enjoyed our stint of warm weather and the glorious Memorial Day weekend. Of course, this is the beginning of the phase of the year where everyone is madly out traveling our great state slaying fish and visiting the amazing locations so we won’t be having any more formal meetings until September.
The Spring Break-Up IPA homebrew contest was held with the support of 49th State Brewing Company and Anchorage Brewing Company. Willie Creamer won the best of show with his American IPA. Thanks go out to our comp organizer Dan Bosch and our sponsors.
Our Brewathon event went off well and once again, we had lovely weather to enjoy brewing outdoors and to grill some savory treats. Attendance was modest, but fun, and we look forward to the Sobolesky’s hosting us again next year.
The BJCP class wrapped up and while we could not hold the Tasting Exam, we will be back next year to hold the class, sans exam. Always a fun educational event with lots of classic beers to taste, look forward to it!
We hope to see you at the summer events we have until our first regular meeting of the season in September:
June 16th BBQ
John Craig’s Independence Day
Mike’s Brew Haulin’
