One of two breweries in this small Alaskan town. On the edge of town and only a 20 minute walk or so from the pier where most people will probably come from. Rather large place but certainly gets busy when the ships are in. Even with full staff the place is a bit chaotic. Nice deck outside and rather large dining area with a game room on the second floor. First floor has a gift shop as well. Really good food for a brewery with several of the items having been made with beer. Lot of local food items as well which is understandable and a good change of pace. Beer selection is rather good with a good variety of beers including one made from spruce tips which was something completely different for me. Beer is reasonable priced but food is rather expensive. Par for the course in Skagway so I can’t ding it to much on value. Old time building with lots of exposed wood. A good place to hang out, eat and drink beer.

We were lucky to have arrived on a busy afternoon right before the start of the Klondike Road Relay. Got seats at the bar in the nick of time; within ten minutes it was standing room only. The running teams and their friends created a loud and lively atmosphere and it was a big party inside. Porter was good but the IPA was out of this world! I even told a perfect stranger at the bar how yummy it was, and he thought I was a goofball. Unfortunately they had run out of the spruce tip beer, which the bartender said was awesome. Generally a very cool and memorable place with a great vibe and good beer. Alaska rules.

Lively place, quite busy on my visit. Unlike Gold Rush, they are open year-round, but I suspect for most people that’s a moot point. It was early September and they’d run through almost all of their beer, so only two house offerings on tap. Service was hit or miss - a couple bartenders were great, but another came on shift and struggled to acknowledge our existence.

Okay, not a bad place but limited taps lead me only to Chilkoot IPA, Blue Top Porter and Spruce Tip Ale. Friendly serviceable staff came fairly quick to serve me. Fairly clean and a well kept place. I had a mushroom swiss burger which was good. Overall, not what I was expecting. Spruce Tip was their best and they treated me like I was a tourist. Maybe, if they knew no cruise ships were in town they would’ve realized I wasn’t a tourist. I’ll only come back when they have more beers on tap. Average brewpub.

Nice looking pub, not special. Friendly staff.the regular brewer had broken his leg and was out, so the full line up was not available. The food menu was extensive, and nice. Reasonable priced place for a tourist trap especially. They have limited guest taps on as well, although nothing great. Their own beers are relatively decent. Worth a stop if you’re in this remote corner in the world.

You are in Alaska, how can the ambience go wrong? This is a great stop. The Spruce Tip Blonde Ale made our "list" which is saying a lot. There are only 13 beers on the list.
I highly recommend!

Stopped in there last summer on a Pacific NW trip with my wife... we were cruising and the boat had Alaskan beer that wasn’t bad but we were eager to get off the boat and hang out in a local pub. This is a very small town and the brewery is a throw back to the old west saloon style. Nice rustic feel with alot of friendly locals who had as many questions about us eastcoasters as we did about their town. The brews were good solid beers but nothing too exciting... its been so long I wouldn’t rate any of the beer I drank there but would recommend as a place to visit if your in Skagway ... but wouldnt go out of my way if Skagway was not on your list of destinations!

Can’t believe I didn’t rate any of their brews! Kind of kills me. From what I recall, really small and quaint home-town charm. Wait staff was incredibly attentive and the place was packed due to our cruise ship landing their. Food was really well prepared and piping hot on a cold day. Definitely worth stopping in if you are in port!

Nice alaska lodge type of vibe with about 5 good house brews on tap. The food was very good as well. Especially the fish and chips. As far as beers I recommend trying the spruce tip ale.
