Alaskan Brewing Company unsure how steel, aluminum tariffs will affect manufacturing

Mar 28, 2018

The Trump administration’s steel and aluminum tariffs have a Southeast Alaska business unsure how it’ll be affected.

The Alaskan Brewing Company employs about 100 people making beer in Juneau.

The almost fully automatic canning line is behind the towering steel tanks that brew the beer.

A pallet full of empty aluminum cans is loaded into a machine, which feeds them into the almost fully automatic assembly line.

They slide down a series of conveyor belts. Along the way they’re washed, filled, sealed and finally packed into boxes.
