Tomorrow we’ll be hanging an art show at Turnagain Brewing Co. before the brewery opens. We’ll also get to hang out at the brewery and drink beer during the First Friday art opening from 5pm – 8pm. If you can stop by, I’ll be happy to see you! I can’t believe I get to drink beer and talk to friends for my job! I have had dozens of art shows, but for some reason I still get a bit of an adrenaline rush every time I walk in.
Turnagain Brewing is one of our favorite small craft breweries here in Anchorage. Dr. Ted Rosenzweig has done an amazing job with some of his unique beers from the sour side of the brewery. I really love drinking the Framb Was, a raspberry sour. I pretty much order a glass of it every time I visit. Turnagain also does a really good job in the “clean” side of the brewery, or the “non wild yeast” side. The Blanca, a Belgian wit beer, is really well brewed, and I think it is the best example of the style in Alaska. It’s Maria’s go-to beer when we go to the brewery together.
Some of the paintings have been shown before, but never in this specific grouping. I really like the way Ted built the hanging system on the walls, it makes putting a show together really straightforward and easy. There will be 14 original oil paintings in total, as well as a selection of limited-edition prints, a few of which are about to become sold out!
I look forward to seeing you, if you can make it! The city has lifted all restrictions, so there is more capacity inside the brewery, but there is also an outdoor beer garden. Bring your masks, they are still mandatory indoors in Anchorage! Cheers!
