You know it’s truly summertime when Wednesday becomes the new Friday! If you need the right place to kick back mid-week, look no further than Fairbanks, AK. The Banks Alehouse is perfecting the laid back, seasonal vibe with their summer beer tasting series every Wednesday from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
With a rotating selection of local and international craft beers, including 34 locally-crafted varieties, drinking is never dull at The Banks Alehouse. Come each week ready to sample a new set of crisp brews, enjoy tried-and-tested classics, and discover new favorites. With the tastings themed on craft beers hailing from Alaska and beyond to Scotland, Belgium, Mexico, and The Netherlands, you’re sure to find something to love at each series.
With The Banks Alehouse being a bar and restaurant, each themed beer tasting comes with a food pairing. For just $25, you can chow down on six different courses alongside the brews. Menu items can include bar staples, like nachos and breadsticks with marinara sauce, but also some unconventional items, like orange-glazed duck breast skewers. Tastings may even feature local food items from the alehouse’s menu, such as The Great Alaskan pizza with its elk and buffalo toppings, the elk burger, and even the Mount McKinley Cookie.
Enjoy your favorite sports game as you make your way through the tasting, use the evening to mingle with old friends and mix with new ones, or even bring your spouse and kids along! The alehouse is a family-friendly restaurant, perfect for the summer holidays. While you partake in the beer series, the younger ones can choose their own meal from the restaurant’s kids’ menu of sliders, pasta, and pizza.
