Seeing Double

A customer favorite is reincarnated as a DIPA! Plus, barleywine party in Anchorage next month!


Seeing Double

Sluice Box is back, now brewed as a double IPA and more often than before!

Plus, get ready to party, Anchorage!

“You’re trapped in a box of tremendous size. It distorts my vision, it closes my eyes.” -No Doubt, “Trapped in a Box”

Who’s ready for a fresh take on one of our fan favorite brews?! Sluice Box is, once again, gracing us with its presence, but now… it’s a double IPA! Hazy, juicy and twice as nice, Sluice Box will be making regular appearances on our brew schedule moving forward!

So besides being amped up to a double, what else is new about this brew? The hop additions, that’s what! Dank, tropical Mosaic; rich and fruity Idaho 7 and luscious, passion fruit-y Galaxy hops now play starring roles in this vibrant brew. A healthy addition of oats contribute to this beer’s smooth, fluffy and irresistibly drinkable body.

Sluice Box Hazy DIPA is now available on tap and in 4-packs to-go from our taproom, and keep an eye out for it at select retailers in Fairbanks and Anchorage.

Let’s Party!

You can catch us in Anchorage at the Alaska Craft Brew & Barley Wine Festival at the Dena’ina Convention Center on Friday, February 2 and February 3! We’ll be pouring plenty of new releases, as well as some of your favorite BSBC flagships! As one would hope, we’ll probably throw in a barleywine or imperial stout for good measure, too. Get your tickets now, and we’ll see you in a couple of weeks!

A Need for Mead

Looking forward to our next batch of mead? Samesies. Mark you calendars for a lil’ Mead Monday action on Monday, January 29! This next batch will see a revisitation to blackberry blossom honey and will be available on tap only (no to-go). These super fun, super small batches always sell out quickly, so scurry on over to get your fix of mead before it’s all gone!
