Drinking on the Last Frontier

11 a.m. the last Saturday of the month
  • Local Host Bill Howell

This show is a celebration of craft brewing on the Kenai Peninsula and Alaska. Bill Howell is the author of four books on craft brewing in Alaska, teaches a beer appreciation class at Kenai Peninsula College, has been brewing and tasting craft beers for 30 years and is uncapping his vast knowledge for listeners. He’ll share news from the beer world, interviews with local brewers, reviews of beer-related books and gadgets, deep dives into beer styles, suggestions for beer and food pairings and much more.

Bill visits with Stephanie Queen from the city of Soldotna and Doug Hogue with Kenai River Brewing to discuss legislative wrangling over potential changes to liquor licensing in Alaska. From today's news, travel back to yeasts of yore and consider which came first, beer or bread? Also, quench your thirst for nonhoppy beers with the Scottish ale.
