When in Juneau, go to the Lemon Creek location. The Douglas location and the Valley location do not have a growler station and are smaller in building size. So you just got off the cruise ship and youíre lookiní for good beer, perhaps good Alaskan beer, possibly somethiní West Coast, or just be amazed by some European selections. Ok, well, Iíve found the place for you. Take the taxi, bus or whatever and go here. The liquor/Beer section is at the back, the food is closer to the front. The liquor/beer section doesnít open until 9 am every day, though the store itself is open 24/7. The selection is pretty good as there is a good amount of Euro brews, Northwest/Alaskan, some West Coast, or Alaskan. Growler selections Iíve seen are: Unibroueís La Fin Du Monde, Kenai Riverís Naptown Nut Brown, Baranof Islandís Baranof Brown, Anchorís Brekle Brown; The service is very good. Every time Iíve gone in, there is always someone making sure Iím finding everything ok and every time I go in, I always strike up a pretty good conversation on beer with either someone who works there or someone checking into the beer scene of Juneau. The food there in the other part is awesome. Their breakfast burritos are the absolute best in Juneau, of course its Juneau, so donít expect anything to be cheap. Their sandwiches are just as good and a well varied selection of different home made styles. If youíre looking for something by Alaskan Brewing Company and canít find it here, the Brewery is within walking distance (or at least for me) just go south to the light and turn left, and then turn right onto Shaune Drive.
