Anchorage Breweries Go-To Guide For Craft Beer Lovers

The craft beer scene in Anchorage, and the entire state of Alaska, continues to grow as Alaska is ranked eighth in the nation for the number of breweries per capita. Holy brews!

Anchorage breweries offer barrels of variety, from the type of beers to the style of tap rooms. Some breweries have full menus while others have local food trucks and outdoor seating.

My favorite way to visit local breweries is by bicycle! I love curating a brewery bike tour to see how many breweries my friends and I can visit in one day. Since Anchorage doesn’t have too many breweries, it actually would be possible to visit all of them in a single day. (I’ve never had much success! :P)

So, if you want to know ‘which Anchorage Alaska breweries should I go to?’ and ‘which breweries have food?’ Well, you can read on for a quick and easy guide to the best breweries in Anchorage.
