After you’re done sampling, be sure to vote for your favorite beer! The brewer of the People’s Choice award winner will be named brewer of the 2014 official Alaska State Fair beer. The 2013 official Fair beer was the Twister Creek IPA by Denali Brewing Co., which won the People’s Choice award at both the 2011 and 2012 Brewfests.

There will also be plenty of beer-friendly food available for purchase and live music throughout the night. Providing the soundtrack for Friday night’s event is Voodoo and Nervis Rex. Element 47 and Against The Grain take the stage Saturday night.
