This Brewery never fails to impress. Every new beer release is at a high level. Small tap room, but guest are allowed to walk the brewery and enjoy their beer. Very nice Atmosphere

Good music, good people. They don’t update their pour list online, so you never know what is on tap until you walk in. Usually about 8 of their own beers.

A down to earth Alaska man makes for a great lead brewer, good beer, and low key but great atmosphere. They have quickly outgrown this rather newer space due to their popularity, so plan accordingly if you intend to stop by, especially on a big release day. Dogs are allowed, as are children, which is nice. It is kinda located in a weird area of town, but with the newer king street building coming in next door, and other nearby buildings popping up, the area will likely seem less random sooner rather than later.

I waited in line for their release of DWTD (an Amazing Beer). I have to say, even with how rude some of the locals were to Gabe ( the owner), he and his employees treated us out of town folk (from Washington) like we had been friends for years. [Service, 5 out of 5] The inside of the brewery is beautiful, very clean setup, the tasting room is very nice and you can go in a little outside area and sit around one of the 2 fires. The place feels as every brewery should. [Vibe 5 out of 5] Try DWTD or one of their Saisons, you'll agree. [Quality 5 out of 5] I think there was about 8 total beers on tap, a fair selection, IPA's sours, Bwines, something for everyone. All in all this brewery is a 5 star business, amust stop location if you're ever in Alaska.

I visited Anchorage Brewing two days ago and absolutely loved it. It was hands-down my favorite brewery stop in Anchorage. The build-out is great, with wood-cladded brite tanks and local artwork hung everywhere; its location is a little out of the way but it seemed like a great place to hang out. The quality is outstanding; they do a great job with their mostly-oaked and mostly-Bretted beers. They had 10 beers on tap when I visited, including a Mikkeller collaboration and a Mikkeller contract brew. This place is absolutely worth a visit; if you can only stop at one Anchorage brewery, make this one it.

Anchorage brewing is the premier brewery for Alaska. Their tasting room is very modern with a wide selection of most of their beers except ADWTD which is disappointing. Plenty on tap. They also have a wide variety of bottles but they need to update their reader board since two variations of Darkest Hour were available in bottles but not on the posted list. Staff very friendly and helpful.

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!
