Kent Rathbun, Matt McCallister, and Scott Romano Host Copper River Salmon Dinner with Alaskan Brewing Company


Copper river salmon is hot right now, and you better gobble it up before it’s all gone. Pretty soon there won’t be any copper river salmon dinners, copper river salmon entrees, or copper river salmon anything. Sucks, right? Help me, help you. Go to this dinner tomorrow. There are several seats left. It’s only $60 and you get four courses made by Dallas’ best chefs. Each is paired with beer. What more can you really ask?

Hurry up and call 214-890-1103 for your reservations.

Who:      Alaskan Brewing Co. Overview & History

Alaskan Brewing Co. has been handcrafting award-winning beers in the remote coastal community of Juneau, AK since 1986.

At Alaskan Brewing, we look to the Last Frontier for inspiration for every beer we make—its history, local ingredients, independent residents, and the spectacular landscape. Recipes for our flagship Alaskan Amber and award-winning Smoked Porter were inspired by archived brewers’ notes from the Gold Rush Era.

Alaskan beers feature everything from glacier-fed water, Sitka spruce tips and alder-smoked malt to birch syrup and fireweed honey, all sourced from the land around us. But our greatest inspiration is the landscape, lifestyle, and the people of Alaska.

Like the land that inspires them, Alaskan beers are anything but ordinary. The same can be said about the people who drink them.

Alaskan Brewing Co. & Copper River Salmon

Alaskan Brewing Co. has partnered with Alaska Seafood and Copper River fishermen for years and is proud to bring the excitement of both world-class catches to Texas with this event.

Salmon fishermen were the first to bring Alaskan beer to the lower 48 when they would fill their holds with Alaskan Amber before sailing south to Seattle.  Pretty soon all along the western seaboard there were bars and restaurants asking for Alaskan.  Now Alaskan is available in 14 states including their southern most, Texas.
