We are proud to announce the 2021 Manufacturer of the Year award was presented to Turnagain Brewing of Anchorage, Alaska! Turnagain Brewing has been brewing and selling Belgian Style Ales and sour beers in Anchorage since 2017. In 2021, Turnagain Brewing expanded their sales while partnering with local producers throughout Alaska to feature a wide array of Alaskan inspired flavors for locals and visitors alike. The company has developed and incorporated an innovative CO2 reclamation system for their brewing process, as well as expanded their offering of house-made non-alcoholic beverages and barrel-aged vinegar products. Turnagain Brewing has also demonstrated a commitment to community by partnering with local non-profits including the Nordic Ski Association of Anchorage, Friends of Pets, Challenge Alaska, Food Bank of Alaska, Hope Center Downtown Soup Kitchen, League of Women Voters of Anchorage, and the Anchorage Park Foundation.

We'd also like to recognize Sipping Streams Tea Company in Fairbanks, Alaska as our runner-up. Sipping Streams started the first-ever tea farm in Alaska in partnership with Chena Hot Springs Resort. 

Thank you again to all our wonderful Made in Alaska permit holders who applied for this year's Manufacturer of the Year.
