3...2...1... Cheers!

Our fifth annual Countdown to 8PM and Golden Spruce Cone Drop will take place on New Year's Eve!

3… 2… 1… Cheers!

Join us on New Year’s Eve for our annual Countdown to 8PM and Golden Spruce Cone Drop!

“All that glitters is gold.” -Smash Mouth, All Star

It wouldn’t be a Black Spruce New Year’s Eve without a couple of annual taproom traditions: our Countdown to 8PM and Golden Spruce Cone Drop!

Why do we countdown to 8PM and not midnight? Under current Alaska state law, breweries such as ours are required to stop service at 8PM (this will change to 9PM on January 1, 2024). We can’t stay open until midnight, so we party until 8PM!

What’s the Golden Spruce Cone Drop? It’s exactly what it sounds like. More wholesome than the giant ball in Times Square but every bit as majestic, our humble, glittery lil’ cone slowly descends from our ceiling to a TBD receiver as we countdown to 8PM. It’s fun, it’s goofy and it’s what we do.

If you’re looking for some cheerful NYE fun, stop by our taproom to enjoy a pint by the fire, grab a few 4-packs and partake in our festivities. We’ll be open from 3PM to 8PM this Sunday, December 31 and closed on Monday, December 1.

Thank you for a terrific 2023! We wish everyone a safe, joyful and happy new year!

Pack ‘Em Up…

…then ship ‘em out! On January 1, we’ll begin shipping beer! Yep, you read that right! Now, you won’t have to miss out on new releases or your fix of one of our flagships just because you aren’t in Fairbanks! Beginning in 2024, we’ll have our beers and ciders available through our online store to ship to you!

*Some restrictions will apply, depending on shipping address, order volume and product availability.

Barrel Beers

We’re on the other side of solstice, but we’ve still got a few months of stout (and barleywine season) left! Stock up now on all FOUR of this year’s barrel-aged releases! We have two variations each of Long Nights Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout and Reginald Van Horn Barrel-Aged Barleywine available in single cans to go. Enjoy now or cellar to enjoy later! Available in 16oz single cans.
