Bethlehem brewer and friends to trek by motorcycle to the Canadian Arctic to brew a historic beer

FromTHE MORNING CALL:
Later this month, Chris Bowen of Bethlehem and a couple of his friends will lead a motorcycle expedition north – far, far north – to the Canadian Arctic, where they plan to set up a portable brewery and make 100 gallons of a hoppy, potent beer that is exceeded in richness only by its own fanciful history.
We’ll get back to Bowen in a moment, but first, the beer. It’s called Allsop’s Arctic Ale. The first people ever to drink it were British sailors dispatched to the Arctic by Queen Victoria in 1852 to discover the fate of an earlier expedition to that frozen realm.[Full Story]
