Anchorage Brewing Company- Maumasi
Maumasi a very special beer made in collaboration with a very special person. Mareko Maumasi of Maumasi Fire Arts, one of the most gifted culinary knife makers in the world; check out his Instagram and you will understand why. He traveled up to Anchorage to teach me his way of knife making and Damascus making, and I was honored to have him here. Maumasi is our first ever Triple Oaked Imperial Stout that we finished with Toasted Coconut and Coffee from Olympia Coffee Company, which is in Mareko’s home town. Yes Coffee has been added to beer a lot, but the interesting connection to this beer is the fact that Mareko uses coffee to etch the carbon steel in the Damascus to show the the contrast of black and silver in the steel.
