On this month's Drinking on the Last Frontier with Bill Howell, go behind the scenes of the Beer 49 channel, back in time for a Burton ale, in the back room of Kenai River Brewing Co. to see its new canning machine and to your backyard for the makings of birch beer.

It's April — the snow is melting but not fast enough to be gardening outside anytime soon. But that doesn’t mean you can’t be harvesting. Greenhouses get you a jump on spring and hydroponics can be a vault toward productivity. Tour Cheryl and Steve Beesun's hydroponic greenhouse in Soldotna, with cucumbers, lettuce and zucchini already ready to eat.

There seems to be no end in sight for the growth of craft brewing. But how much beer do you have to make before it’s not so crafty any more? KDLL’s Shaylon Cochran had that question in mind when he spoke with Doug Hogue from Kenai River Brewing about the newest member of the team.

In the March episode of Drinking on the Last Frontier, Bill visits Country Liquor for a look at the retail craft of stocking unique beers and ponders brewery secession planning to see who will pick up the tab for breweries in the next generation. Plus, the magic of yeast in brewing science, the return of beer gear and the kick of coffee beers. Cheers!

Alex Douthit talks about his experience starting, with his wife, Sarah, their new business, Kenai Peninsula Driving Instruction.

On this month's Drinking on the Last Frontier, Bill revisits the history of alcohol in Alaska and visits with Doug Hogue of Kenai River Brewing about new additions to the brewery. Also, gift suggestions for the craft been lover on your gift list. Cheers!

 


 

Peer-to-peer services aren’t all that new on the central Peninsula. Air BnB has been around for years. And buying and ordering personal services via the internet is only growing. Case in point, you can get an Uber now.
