Juneau, AK – This summer, Alaskan Brewing Company is offering the chance of a lifetime to six college students and recent grads from universities throughout the Western U.S. For four weeks, the Alaskan Summer Six Pack will be spokesmen and women for the Alaskan brand, contributing to the brewery’s marketing strategy, modeling Alaskan gear for their online catalog and representing the brewery at public events. Successful candidates will travel to Juneau, Alaska, for two weeks of onsite projects and after-hours wilderness adventure before returning to their hometown for two more weeks on the streets with their local Alaskan Brew Crew.

In exchange for each brand spokespersons’ work, he/she will receive the frontline experience of a lifetime along with $5,000 for school. Best of all, each spokesperson will have the opportunity for an Alaskan adventure such as glacier trekking, sport fishing, floatplane flight-seeing, bear watching or dog mushing on a glacier.

"For the first time, Alaskan Brewing Company is thrilled to offer this ultimate summer opportunity to students and recent grads in the Western States of the lower 48," says Kristi Monroe, marketing communications director for Alaskan Brewing Company. Most students spend the summers working typical summer jobs to save money. We’re able to take summer jobs one step further: not only will students be rewarded financially for their work this summer, they’ll receive a phenomenal life experience living as an Alaskan."
