What a great find (thanks RateBeer!). I literally arrived here within 30 mins of landing in Anchorage and 15 mins before they closed so I could stock up on great beers for my 2 week driving tour of Alaska. I figured once out of Anchorage craftbeer would be few and far between (the only exception really being Fairbanks and a few stops on the way south to Denali and Talkeetna). The guy working the store helped me assemble an impressive stockpile of Anchorage beers (plus Denali beer from Talkeetna) as well as some really good selections from the US northwest (ex. Deschutes and Ninkasi). My favorite turned out to be King St. IPA that was recommended (I visited that brewery at the end of my trip and flew some of their beer home to NJ) was extremely fresh and hoppy...the kind of Heady Topper style that has to be consumed in the first 2-3 weeks max. This was a great place to start off on my adventure. Thank you to La Bodega! Note that they also sent me next door to Amsterdam Café for dinner where I was able to try a number of Alaska beers my first evening in the state...a perfect 1-2 punch!

I was in Anchorage recently and had to check this place out. Does it live up to the hype from what I hear? Yes, here’s why. It’s a super clean store with an absolutely more than friendly service. The selection was probably the absolute best I saw in all of Alaska that I’ve been in. Jolly Pumpkin, Victory, Dogfish Head, hard to find Ninkasi, SN and MS that doesn’t send certain brews to Juneau graced the shelves. Prices were definitely better than Juneau. Yeah, I was more than impressed. This place does live up to its hype at least for AK. When in Anchorage, this should be your first choice for bottle shops. They even helped me pack my suitcase with the beer that I bought!

Neat little bottle shop in central Anchorage. Lots of local/Alaska beers and much beer from Washington/Oregon. Saw some Jolly Pumpkin there too! Good stop to pick up some seldom seen beers down here in the lower 48. The staff knows their stuff too.

Nice bottle shop. Most of the beers in coolers, some on the floor. Great selection and good prices. Next time I’ll come with an empty suitcase.

This bottle shop has a great selection of beverages from around the globe. A large selection of ciders which I was surprised by. They had an amazing selection of beers, meads, ciders from around Alaska as well. Great stop.

Stopped by their new location. Plenty of room with a very diverse selection of beer. They now offer growler fills in 32oz an 64oz. The service is spot on and very helpful in that not annoying way. Prices are on the higherside; however many of the singles they have are not found readily elsewhere. This will most likely become my regular stop.

Stopped by to pick up some mix a six pack of Alaskan beers. This place is smallish with most of their beer in coolers. they have hundreds of northwest beers and especially Alaskan beers. The guy at the shop was helpful and knowledgable. The prices were great I think I paid like $10 for a six of mixed stuff. Would highly recommend if you are looking for quantities of different Alaskan beers.

Great bottle shop. 500 +bottles to choose from and they move the product. It comes in and it goes. Great section and great service.

Space wise, this place is not very big, but it does pack a punch with the space it’s been given. Great selection of Celestial Mead meds. Great selection of beers. They didn’t really seem to have anything "rare", but I’m not from here, so everything, is in a sense, "rare" to me. The service was nice, and I was able to shoot the shit with the guy working there, for a few minutes. Very personal experience, but doesn’t carry the selection as say the Brown Jug off of Old Seward, or wherever it’s located. The prices here seem to be pretty consistent everywhere I’ve been.

Comfy, laid-back little hole in the wall on one side of an old mall. Great selection of regionals, Western US micros, and some European imports. Everything can be purchased singly; woo-hoo! Nice and knowledgeable young sales lady was the only other person in the store on a Sunday afternoon. Fair pricing for Alaska.
