Ten questions: Jeff Brown
web-posted Wednesday, July 1, 2015
Longtime KTOO program director Jeff Brown is the man behind the popular satirical magazine "Real Alaskan," now in its fifth year of annual publication. The magazine, which earned Brown a first-place Alaska Press Club Award in the humor category in 2011, includes exaggerated stories about life in Alaska and Brown's doctored photos, as well as fake ads from local businesses. The project grew out of his experience with "Juneau What," a satirical newspaper started by Brown, Bill Hudson and Ken Burch in 1983. The first issue of "Real Alaskan" came out in 2010 on April Fool's Day. Here's a Q&A with Brown about the latest issue.

You'll only catch me drinking a Budweiser once a year. It's usually a tall one. I drink it on the Fourth of July. I do it because I'm patriotic. Is Budweiser a patriotic beer? I have no idea. I just find the red, white and blue label symbolic in my own quirky way. Besides, Bud's been around a long time, and despite it being a bland, insipid mass-produced lager from a company that only dabbles in craft beer to control the market, the brand is deeply embedded in the fabric of America's beer drinking culture, so I'll hoist one.

This week marks the celebration of our nation's independence. I love the 4th of July. I remember growing up on military posts and the huge events the morale support department would host for the soldiers and their families.
