Our friends at 49th State Brewing Co Anchorage have a special message about co-hosting the Czech Ambassadors for our July 25th Europe of the Future: Czech View --

Head Brewer, David Short says, "It’s a great privilege to host the current and former Czech Ambassadors at 49th State Brewing Company. In honor of this occasion, we decided to brew a Pilsner beer in the Czech style to welcome him to the 49th State. The beer is brewed with Bohemian Pilsner malt and Czech Saaz hops lending bready and floral flavors to this balanced and refreshing lager."

Here is the team hard at work preparing this special brew for the 25th. Visit the Alaska World Affairs Council website to learn more and to secure your ticket.
