Alaska has one of the most vibrant beer scenes in the country.  Despite its small population, it has more breweries than denser states like Connecticut, Maryland, South Carolina, and Kentucky. Every year, most of Alaska’s breweries descend on tiny Haines for their annual brew fest. This year, they celebrated their 21st birthday, and had their highest turnout yet.
