Stopped in a couple of times over GABBF weekend. First stop was Friday afternoon. Not far off the highway and located in a very industrial area. The building stands out though, not only because of the logo on the garage door, but it is clearly the newest structure in the area. Enter on the lower level at the opposite end from the brewery where they have a few tap options and a glass front tall cooler loaded with bottles. I imagine they use this area on the weekends or something, but it wasnít open so we headed up stairs to the loft. Nice clean minimal, metal and concrete industrial feel to it. Small little kitchen in the middle that just opened that week, with plenty of seating and the bar located on the opposite wall. We got lucky and they pulled many of the regular releases to have such things on as Sloth, Oaked Monkís Mistress on Nitro and Good MoJo. Bar is flanked on the ends with merchandise on one end and a cooler lager than the one down stairs with all the bottle offerings including some in larger format. They do offer a discount on a case of bottles. Draft options had 2-3 size offerings and service was fantastic. They do also have some nice large windows that just past the industrial neighboring lots, offer great views of the mountains. We didnít have food either day, but they do offer fresh soups, some sandwiches and quite a bit of sharing/snack food. Only wished we would have made it in earlier on Thursday for the tour. Great facility and a must stop.

Wow, the new place is great! There is a lot more room. You can SIT and drink a few beers now. There is a nice line of taps so the selection has gone way up from the 6 in the old warehouse. I still need to go on the new tour of the brewing facility but this is a major set up from the old place. I canít wait until they get the kitchen up and going for food and beer. Good Job MSBC!!!

Pretty good selection to take home. Not incredibly friendly and prices for a couple of bottles were higher than the stores. They also charge for samples...even if you buy more than $140 worth of shit. Their beer is good though.

These guys are great, we got there at noon, not realizing that they donít open until 3pm. No problem they opened the door and took great care of us. Itís not fancy, but who cares the beer is great and the people could not have been nicer. Oh yea and the beer is awesome. All of their bottled beers were avaible refrigerated.

Update for the new facility. WOW, what an upgrade. Located in an industrial area that can be hard to find the first time. Ambiance is industrial with a sleek, modern, clean look with lots of concrete, brick and steel. Great service, they keep 2-3 people pouring during peak hours. Selection is great, up to 16 beers on tap, 4 sodas and a cooler full of 22oz bombers of core and seasonal beers. You can also get kegs and growlers filled although some of the special beers on tap are "buy the glass only". Value is good. Overall this is a great place. You are limited to 36oz per person to consume on site because of some dumb city or state law.

stopped by to pick up a case, was not there on a tour day. Good selection of midnight sun in growlers, and a half dozen on tap for samples. ambience is lacking since its just a garage, beer cooler and cash register, but the quality makes up for it

Stopped here on a Saturday afternoon before leaving Anchorage AK. Basically a garage in an old warehouse in Anchorage, AK. The kid pouring the beers was great. I was there for hours just chatting with him about beer, Anchorage and Midnight Sun. They donít do tours on Saturdays but when it slowed down he took me for a walk through

They only bottle and sell growlers here. The hours are limited so make sure you check their website. While I was visiting the owner and one of the brewers Ben Johnson stopped in. They chatted with me for a while and even helped me pack up a box of beer I purchased. Ben made sure the stuff was packed well and even send me on my way with a few bottles they didnít have out in the coolers for sale. Thanks for a great visit!

Friendliness goes a long way to increase the score for ambiance. What beautiful products are crafted here. Tour was very interesting and I wasnít spoken to like a novice. I wish I couldíve tried everthing on tap, luckily what I couldnít try was available in bombers.

Best beer in Alaska, period. Friendly crew at the brewery. Try and stop on a Friday if you want the "tour", but whatever happens, buy their beer!
