You can’t unread “1984.” It gets into you, which is why allusions to the classic George Orwell novel about the dystopia of dystopias have become ubiquitous.

Jack Marshall has held many a Southeast Alaskan child, Elder, and boa constrictor on his knee over the past few decades as Santa Claus. He's also a real-life Santa: Whenever he makes enough on the gig, he and his wife Judy buy presents for or give donations to needy families.

A couple of weeks ago, I featured Bleeding Heart Brewery, a new brewery that's in the making out in Palmer. This is another Alaska brewery that came in under my foamy radar and was revealed to me by Chris, the server at Midnight Sun Brewing Company one day when I was enjoying fine libations in the brewery's Loft.

Ketchikan has the reputation of being on an island with a poor deer population. I have my doubts. It could be something as simple as access, which would then make it pale in comparison to Prince of Wales — my home island. Students show me pictures of the bucks they got on POW. I tell them as long as they stay out of my spots, they can go get their deer. Friends head over there too. I tell them as long as they stay out of my spots, they can go get their deer.

There’s a new brewery on the radar in southcentral Alaska. Patience, my beer-loving Southeast friends: You’ve got a new brewery on the way too, but Baleen Brewing of Ketchikan is a ways off yet. It’s not quite a race to the finish, but Bleeding Heart Brewery is one of three new breweries up here that could open late this year or in early 2015.
