does not look like much, but what matters is a good beer selection - both Alaskan and form the lower 48s, plus few European; decent food, harried but attentive service, expensive but not more than other downtown Anchorage joints

Sort of a rundown, old locals and college-kids looking place, which is kinda my style. TVs and radio going at the same time so you don’t have to think were a bit annoying, but not nearly as loud as most places. Was a Sunday when it wasn’t too busy and service was really lackluster. That’s really my only complaint, and I know this is usually just related to high turnover in staff. I don’t think this was the case here; they were catering to locals-only on this start of the tourist season Sunday afternoon. Otherwise, a great beer selection, with the typical Alaska pricing, especially for the food.

Spotted 50 draughts during Alaskan Beer Week, with 21 listed as local. Most ran about $5. Dimly lit "diner" decor with large c-shaped black bar of light wood trim and steel pipe fool rail. silent TVs all around, football on the large-screen, rock & roll tunes. Double doors mitigate some of the arctic chill outside. Live music Thursdays and Fridays packs the place.
Food includes crab roll, halibut fish and chips, king crap, southwest salmon cakes, halibut tacos, pasta, halibut burgers, salmon burgers and steamed clams. Easy walk from other downtown locations. Very popular place.

Went here after Sub Zero for a few pints. Great selection of beers but we didn’t eat anything. Just sat around, listened to the band and
Gets crowded and loud, walking distance to Glacier Brewing and Sleeping Lady, good times!

Had lunch there on a Thursday in June, while on vacation the day before we left to catch our cruise. This place was fairly busy for a mid-week lunch. Sat out on the back patio, which had heaters going. Had a Moose’s Tooth IPA and halibut tacos. The tacos were pretty good although expensive. Service was good. They had a good selection of Alaskan brews and some Belgians. Worth a stop if you come to Anchorage.

Went to Humpy’s twice for lunch on a recent business trip, so I can’t comment on it being crowded at night, or crowded during peak season. First, the food rocked. I had the Halibut tacos on my first visit and the Crab Roll on my second visit. Both items kicked my ass. Great food. The beer selection was full of Alaskan beers and rotates often. There were Belgians and some others on draft as well. Around 30 drafts total. Parking is a pain, as you have to pay no matter what. Service was friendly and the bartender knew about each beer and recommended other menu items. Humpy’s pretty much is everything a beer bar and restaurant should be. Great beer, great food and great service. If I’m even in Anchorage again, this will be my first stop.

Visited on a Saturday night after the GABBF connoisseur session. The place was packed and they were ID’ing at the door, so we figured we would go straight to the bar for a ’one and done’. Draft list was quite large, but nothing super crazy or rare when we were there. It was nicely mixed though with locals, domestic crafts, and imports. After getting a beer, the couple at the bar in directly in front of us were on the way out, so we sat down and took a look at the menu. Decent mix of salads, sandwiches, burgers, pizzas, and seafood. A bit pricey for what you go and pretty much middle of the road quality wise. Good service though and would check it out again if I were in town, I just wouldn’t go out of my way for it as it is a bit of a tourist trap.

Best TAP selection in Anchorage that I could find, with focus on Alaskan beers & Pascific mainland brews.
Atmosphere is very run down, almost "dive" style bar - plump oval booths, old tables, & run down exterior appearance.
Clientele is diverse, and almost disturbingly so. On a Sunday night at 8pm I couldn’t get a table. Everyone had their kids in this place (most under 10yrs old), even though it’s a worknight and a loud band is starting. A lot of people were blue collar working folks, which I thought was odd for a place serving upscale beers.
Service was simply average. On afternoon visits I received proper attention but on moderately busy evenings it was below par.
Food was average and reasonably priced, given Alaska prices on the whole.
Conclusion: if you can get here on a slow time during the day, preferably on a weekend, then Humpy’s is a good place. Evenings are another story.

Visited on late on a Saturday night, the bar had a live band and a crowd of 20-something-year-olds. Service was abnoxiously slow but to be fair it was very busy and rowdy. There’s a neat tap graveyard running the perimeter of the bar at the ceiling, and interesting artwork on the walls relating to Humpy’s (or pink salmon, which are never served here). Fantastic beer selection of 51 taps. We returned the next morning (very quiet, football highlights on the televisions) and ate breakfast, which was filling and enjoyable.

A must visit alehouse. The food is good but the real treat is the selection of beers. The biggest selection in Anchorage that I have seen so far. The menu is great and the beers are listed by style (helpful!) This is going to be a new staple in my list of resturants to eat at because of the beer selection.
