Alaskan brewing company holds events for 'beer week'

This week is Alaska Beer Week

Juneau, Alaska (KINY) Building awareness of beer products is the goal of a week long event known as Alaska Beer Week.

Events began last Friday and continue all week here in Juneau.

Darin Jensen of the Alaskan Brewing company said he's excited about the event, "It is centered around the 24th annual Alaska beer and barley festival in Anchorage.  They decided to do an Alaska beer week and events feature beer products produced here in Alaska."

You can go to the Alaskan Brewing Company Facebook page to learn about the different events that are taking place. 

Jensen said he thinks the industry is growing and competitive,  "The industry is good.  We started in 1986.  We were the 67th brewery in the US.  This year we have over 6,000 breweries.  That gives you a perspective.  It is a booming business.  We are fighting to stay on the shelf."
