Great Introduction To Alaskan Craft Brewing
, Sep 2021
Started with a group of strangers, finished with a group of good friends and a lot of new appreciation of the Anchorage brewing industry. Our guide was a very knowledgeable 18-year veteran of the local brewing industry and knew the owners and staff of the breweries visited. Recommended.
Enjoyable experience
, Sep 2021
Enjoyed the explanations of how beer is brewed, from how the barley malts are harvested to how important it is to put the raw ingredients together just right for the brewing process. The staff and tour guide were so kind and amazing. I felt happy throughout my trip experience.
Do it!

We loved the tour! It was very informative. The guide did an awesome job. The beer samples and food were plentiful and really good.

Brian was a knowledgeable guide, every brewery was gracious and exuded passion for what they do. You can tell that the brewery world is a tight knit community. Would recommend to all!
Very fun way to spend an afternoon in Anchorage...highly recommend!

Guide/driver was helpful and courteous. All three breweries selected had excellent beers, friendly and knowledgeable staff, and interesting facilities. From geeking out on beer chemistry at one brewery to having staff at another poke fun at the person who "is too into chemistry" by claiming "I just make beer".
Tasty tour

Brian was a great guide and each brewery was welcoming. The beers were tasty and the other people on our tour a riot. Definitely recommend this tour.
Worth it!

Brian was great! The trip was fun and knowledgeable. Great for those who want to learn the different types of beer, brewing process, history of the breweries you’re going too, and everyone is nice that you meet.
lovely Darks! :))

Was fun going to 3 different breweries, learning about their brewing process and tasting a variety of beers!!
One of our Highlights of our Trip
, Aug 2019
From start to finish this was a fantastic trip, originally they thought they would have to cancel, but worked with us to keep it going given how much we had looked forward to it. Throughout the process they communicated in advance and so clearly. And given the experience, so glad it happened! The energy from the moment we met up with the bus was high and positive! She kept it fun and engaging. We did 3 breweries, each stop was ready for us when we got there and had someone designated to give us our tours and of course taste. The setup was perfect with the fuller presentation at the first brewery, extended tour and tasting...the second stop, still a tour but a bit shorter, tasting and some nibbles, and the last stop was a smaller shop with tastings! Throughout she stayed engaged and ensured all guests, even a non-drinker in the group, were taken care of. Truly a great team running this company delivering a very positive and fun event!

Well done brewery tour
, Jun 2019
This was very well done with visit to three local breweries via nice van. Guide was knowledgeable and met brew masters at each. Backstage tour of the inner workings of the brewery with education on how beer is made. Highly recommended for an afternoon in anchorage.
