October Technical Tour – King Street Brewery

Sep 27, 2019

Given the upcoming ASSP Alaska Occupational Safety Summit October 22 and 23, the regular October Chapter luncheon will be slightly different.

In addition to the Safety Summit, King Street Brewery has agreed to host a technical tour of their brewing facility at 9050 King Street, Anchorage, AK 99515.

The tour is scheduled for October 15, 2019, at 4:00 p.m.  To minimize the risk to operations at King Street Brewery and to AK ASSP members, the size of the tour group must be limited to 25 attendees.

The tour will consist of a discussion and a walk around tour of the facility.  There will be an opportunity for additional networking following the tour.

Due to the space limit of 25 attendees, it is essential for those that wish to attend send an RSVP to Chris Warner, AK ASSP President, at  president@alaska.assp.org.  RSVP’s for the tour will be granted on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Those that submit an RSVP to Chris will receive a reply acknowledging his/her status as an attendee for the tour or assignment to the standby list.  A standby list of attendees will be created for those that are not one of the first 25 to RSVP.  As attendees on the RSVP list cancel, individuals on the standby list will be notified via email.

There is no cost for the tour.  Estimated length of the technical tour is 90 minutes. No special PPE is required for participating in the tour.

Send your RSVP to your Chapter President, Chris Warner, at president@alaska.assp.org as soon as possible to reserve your spot on the RSVP list.
