Visions of sled dog racing and the taste of Alaska fishing might have flashed through the minds of hundreds of area residents this past weekend, thanks to Sparge Brewery.
The Wellington-based craft brewery brought the Last Frontier to the Front Range on Saturday evening when they hosted a special event at their Wellington facility. As part of an event to showcase the brewery’s many specially-crafted beverages, Sparge brought the feel of Alaska to the forefront as On the Hook mobile catering served up fresh Alaska cod.
“It was a great way to bring the community together” mentioned Jeanette Daig, Social Media Manager. “It went very well!”
In addition to offering up some excellent codfish and fries, Sparge also highlighted the event by providing live music by the Mystic River Band. A trio, the band is comprised of Jennifer Bowers, Hanna Butler, and Chas McCarthy.
Sparge Brewery, which was established in 2018 has grown into one of the state’s top craft beer producers. The brewery is located 8 miles north of Fort Collins off Highway 87.
