Only been open for a few months. Can see Mt McKinley from the main room on a good day. Rooftop overlooks the city and also the northern view toward Denali. Brew house is glasses in, set behind the bar, giving you a great bar room atmosphere. Tap list includes ales, lagers, and small batches. Service is great, with lots of bartenders who are knowledgable about the area. Descent gift shop. They have growler and crowler (32oz can) options to take home.

I've been toying with the idea of RV road tripping from New England to Anchorage and this place sealed the deal for next summer. I put their beer and vibe right there with Surly, 3 Floyds, Treehouse, Lawson, Alchemists. Never been in a brewery with so many great lines flowing at the same time. Scariest thing is they are brand new.. Bravo

The place gets busy on the weekends and during events but with room outside, around the barrels and at the tables you can find some room on a nice day. They play good music at volumes high enough to give a sense of privacy to your conversations in the crowded tasting area. You are free to wander the floor and check out the brewing equipment. A true small batch facility focused on quality. Bottles to go and growler fills from the 10 taps give more variety and the option of stopping in for a quick fill to go. Overall cool vibe and always good beer on tap. Worth the visit if you're in Anchorage and doing a brewery stop.

10 taps, bottles available for onsite, bottled to go. tasters of any of the taps.

A truly beautiful taproom with the beers to match. very knowledgeable and friendly staff. it's deceivingly smaller than photos make it look. you're free to wander among the foeders with your beer and have a look. no food as of yet, but they plan to do a charcuterie and cheese kind of thing in the future. a must-hit if you're in Anchorage, and close by to King Street and Midnight Sun for the trifecta.

There is a reason Anchorage Brewing Company has such high rating on their beer. Quality comes first! The same can be said about the brewery. While the outside may be deceiving, located in south Anchorages warehouse area, the inside is by far the nicest of Anchorages breweries. Wood finishes make Anchorage Brewing a site to see and complement the wood barrels used to brew. The staff is friendly and willing to talk beer if they are not too busy. No food as of this post but food trucks are sure to fill the vast parking area soon. If you are visiting Anchorage this is a must see and taste!
