Notes: To-Go Bar on ground level. The kitchen in The Loft is now open, 11am - 8pm every day (Alaska state laws require breweries to be closed by 8pm). Their menu can be perused at their website. Remember, they are remaining licensed as a brewery only, not a brewpub, so per the State of Alaska, there is a 36 oz. on-site consumption limit per person, per day in the Loft.

Again continuing the Alaskan trend of breweries and eating establishments that you must climb large stairwells to enter, and worse walk down after having a few. 2020 visit.

Situated in a industrial section of town I found no problem finding a parking spot near by. Located on the second floor of an industrial building I hate to be leaving after a few with the large steel stairwell. Inside a cozy wooden atmosphere, deep and plenty enough for seating. I opted for takeout for the cooler. Prices were good, I actually got a buy one get one free for Havak which was a pleasant surprise.

A knowledgeable bartender entertained me with some history after asking for any hidden M’s lying around. He pointed me towards a guy who was willing to part with for a few thousand, just a bit out of my budget. A quint and cozy environment inside, service was friendly and fast. A decent selection of beers on tap 7-8, with a good variety, again never leaning to hard on the ipa craze and willing to do styles not commonly found elsewhere.

Great quality of beer, never heard an argument against style from no one. I hear this place can get pretty packed even on a weekday. Of course when you make beers like M, that is a given. I also hear they do a lot of one offs, good rotation of beers on tap, good for people looking for something new and keep coming back. Experimental beers.

I hear the food is excellent, would of tried if not eaten earlier but will take the locals word for it. For a fan of Alaska and Alaskan beer which is impossible for me to get where I am from, this was a worth while visit and one you can’t pass up. Lots of experimental and commonly brewed beers. Arctic devil barleywine comes to mind. Just don’t indulge to much, you still must tackle that steep stairwell afterwards.

Visited Midnight Sun on a recent trip through Anchorage and found it to have almost all of the brewery's beers available in bottles and on tap. The service was excellent.

Seating is first come, first serve so plan to stand around for a while at 5:00 on a workday. Growler fill prices included a new growler. The bottle selection was smaller than I expected around Christmas. The gift shop on the way out has a lot of stuff for sale. Nice staff.

Anchorage has many great breweries. Midnight Sun is a must try. The quality of beer is far beyond what you get in the lower 48 and the staff is great too! The food selection is also good. Taco Tuesday seems to be everyone's favorite day/night to visit. Thursday's are the brewery tour which is also a must. Visit Midnight Sun and have some great beer and food. You can buy beer to go too!

Midnight Sun is one of the if not the best breweries in Anchorage. They have a lot of beers on tap and the food is pretty good. Not your typical bar type food. Highly recommend a visit or two.
