Alaska Beer Coasters
There are thousands of beer coasters worldwide, so I narrowed my focus to where I live - the great state of Alaska! Visiting breweries, cideries, wineries, and bars in Alaska make it easy to ask for beer coasters and sample beer.
Collecting beer coasters is a hobby, but taking pictures and researching breweries can feel like a job.
Alaska Beer Coasters website, social media sites, and the content posted are completely managed and created by myself. I'm not sponsored or paid by any business or brewery.
Alaska Beer Coasters are an art form that preserves not only the brewing history, but also the history of Alaska. I hope you enjoy the collection.
