Iím not sure why people knock ambience for a working brewery, what do you expect? Itís about making beer, not making beer gardens etc...hell, most tasting licenses PREVENT you from even having bar stools as you are NOT a bar. Thus a perfect score for what I expected.
That being said Kassik was very very helpful. We walked in on a Kenai beer tour and the three of us just got started talking. Very interesting that his well water is in the low 40ís, uses no finings and cold chills everything just by using what he has. Expansion coming.
Beer was absolutely top notch and my favorite stop. I love the fact they have DOT signs pointing the way. Iím from San Diego and this was well out of my way but worth every minute to get there.

This place is a bit out of the way but definitely worth the drive. Basically a shop on the owners property, but very clean and new. We were welcomed in and treated like old friends right away. They poured us a sample of every beer they had on tap and were extremely knowledgeable about the beer. The owner/brewer was trying to brew up a batch but still took the time to take us on a tour. You canít buy pints for on site consumption but they fill growlers, keg, sobe bottles, or basically any vessel you bring in. The beer is excellent, quality ingredients and very flavorful, my favorite was the IPA. We will definitely go out of our way to go back and itís great to see their beer on tap around Alaska. Very good people and very good beer. Thanks.
