CATCH 49 SEAFOOD SALE AND PAELLA FEAST

Catch 49 provides Alaskans with delicious high-quality wild seafood responsibly harvested by Alaska’s small boat fishermen and delivered to areas stretching from Homer to Fairbanks. Their selections are tailored to Alaskans’ big appetite for seafood, so they sell larger volumes of custom-processed seafood that is frozen, vacuum-sealed and ready for your freezer. This special sell includes Bristol Bay sockeye, black cod, halibut and rockfish. To sweeten the deal, Casa Pepe’s Jay Mullen will be dishing up freshly made paella for $11 a portion from 12 – 2pm. Seafood can be purchased in person between 12 – 6pm or online at Catch49.org. (Catch 49, 636 E 15th Avenue)

BEER RELEASE: CASK VIBE-A-LICIOUS

Remember the Vibe-a-licious Pale Ale we brewed with SJ Klein for the Girdwood Forest Fair? An easy-drinking lower ABV beer made for dancing in the sunshine. We conditioned some in a pin (1/2 firkin) and some in two kegs. Now it’s ready! Come early to compare Vibe-a-licious served at cellar temperature with a beer engine versus keg-conditioned served cooler and on draft. Mountain Pies will be serving up pizza and wings starting at 4pm! (Cynosure Brewing, 144 E Potter Drive, Unit E)
