This is NOT some stuffy awards ceremony.

We Alaskans know summer is short so we have to make the most of it. Don’t get stuck indoors at a boring after-hours business event. Come party with us on the sun-drenched deck at 49th State Brewing Co. and enjoy:

  • Live Music – Start tapping your toes now: We’re excited to have Blackwater Railroad Company take the stage! Blackwater Railroad Company is a folk-rock group built from diametrically opposed backgrounds, coincidentally brought together by love of music and Alaska. Like good moonshine, this group was formed in a dark basement, in the middle of winter, and consistently delivers warm, raucous evenings.
  • Beer – Every admission gets a drink ticket for 1 beer, wine or cocktail. Premium cocktails are available for purchase (including a couple 49th State signature “Best of Alaska Business” cocktails).
  • Prizes – Every ticket holder gets entered to win door prizes last year’s was 2 tickets on Alaska Airlines, come find out what we’re giving away this year. (Hint it’s going to be awesome!)
  • Beer – Because… Beer.
  • SWAG – Everyone at the party will be leaving with some sweet gear in a Best of Alaska Business tote.
  • Food – The best Alaskan grub you have ever tasted in your life, Guaranteed.*
  • Beer – Did we mention beer?

This sounds amazing! Where do I park?

What is this “beer” you keep telling me about?

Great question. According to Wikipedia, Beer is the world’s oldest[1][2][3] and most widely consumed[4] alcoholic drink; it is the third most popular drink overall, after water and tea.
