Super beer selection. But be sure to talk to the beer tenders they will know if the stuf has sat for along time.

Great selection and prices. Lots of coolers full of good beer and some on the shelves. Friendly service. Growler fills.

There are several of these located throughout Anchorage - the one I visited was at 4140 Old Seward Highway which seems to be the largest in the city. Has a great selection of Alaskan and other Pacific Northwest brewers. Most are sold only in six packs - with an exception of a few bombers. Has a decent selection of Belgians - counted at least 25 or so on two different shelves. I picked up a bomber of Elysian Perseus Porter here on my last day in the city just so I would not walk out empty handed - already had stocked up earlier in the week at Yukon Spirits. Overall a decent place - just not as catering to the beergeek.

Large selection of microís, local, and imports. Good prices and even better prices if you shop the sales. Good service, just donít expect anyone there to tell you the difference between a Belgium Dubbel and Tripel.

Big store on the Old Seward Highway ( I think the address listed here is wrong...) Ample selection of Alaska made products including the Celestial meads, some PNW, Lost Abbey, and a Unibroue and Dieu du Ciel selection that actually offends me as a Canadian who canít get half that in my own province. Mostly grabbed Midnight Sun products with a few others. Service was good, but we didnt have too many questions. Prices seemed a bit pricey for some things, but I donít have anything to compare to really since I donít normally have access to those products so they might be average.

Visited on a Saturday afternoon back in September, this huge warehouse of liquor has an incredible selection. Beers from Quebec that we donít get in Ontario are found here in abundance -- Unibroue and Diel du Ciel! Tons of local Midnight Sun bombers and Belgian selections, nothing overly expensive. Absolutely worth the bus ride out.

SHIG  (195) Wasilla, Alaska | May 26, 2012
When they say warehouse they mean it, vast selection of beer and wine. Not to mention they have at least 10 taps to do growler purchase/fills. Lots of locals and regional beers fill the shelves. Service at the growler station is more than what anyone could ask for, but the rest seems like Costco. Worth the stop if in Anchorage.

Large open warehouse feel. Not as personal, that is to say "initmate" as La Bodega. Thereís not really any reason to compare the two; Iím only doing so because they both sell beer, and are both categorized as a "Beerstore". Just because of sheer size they had a more expansive selection. They had a couple of taps in the back for growlers. They also had a decent Belgian selection, amongst other European brews. Fairly good prices for big-volume beer packs, like 30-packs, but their 22 oz. bottle werenít cheaper. Overall, it was fine, and the service wasnít bad at all, but I guess thereís a price you pay for the experience, too.

jsquire  (152) St. Marys, Ohio | January 21, 2012
Big beer wine and liquor store. Big selection of Alaskan and PNW micros, as well as a few meads and ciders. They have a growler filing station with some nice kegged beers. Much bigger than la bodega and a little cheaper, but not quite the depth, especially on the meads. Really you should hit both if you go down there.

Excellent selection for Alaskan beers and Pacific Northwest options. Not a bad Belgian selection either. The place is very large (at least the Old Seward Hwy one anyway). Thereís a cooler with singles , but for the most part youíre stuck buying six packs of anything smaller than 22 oz.
