First person to have made it out here on Ratebeer, I see. I ím not sure what type of business this used to be, prior to Kodiak Island having occupied the building. Taps are up and to your right, as you walk in. They have some fairly cool glassware, but not much of it, in terms of variety. T-shirts, and some other beers items are strewn across the walls. Beer is REALLY good on average. I brought co-workers here, and they loved it; even co-workers that arenít "beer people". This place is loved by locals, as itís fairly easy to spot a tourist. Are you wearing water boots? Chances are youíre a local. There are church pews scattered across the place (they still have the Bible holders on the back). Thereís a stand up bar area for talking to your friends. Thereís a place to purchase beer, but other than that, itís a open feel. Glad to have visited Kodiak, possibly for the first and only time in my life. Iím sure once youíre here, youíll notice the large number of bald eagles. Anyways, great experience, and very good beers, to boot. They didnít have any visitor taps; they had ~7 of their house beers.
