Nice towneven better pizza. Stopped by for dinner, and had some pizza and a beer. The place is small, fits loe 30 or so people, they had a brew event the previous day so they had a few leftover brews on tap. Selection was about six taps. The food and sevice was pretty good. Overall a nice place and an nice town.

Not really sure this place should be here. They do have a decent selection of craft beer and Alaskan stuff, but definitely not a beer destination. Small eating area with a big deck during the summer. Pizza and sandwiches are good, service is usually decent unless they are slammed during the summer. Value is Talkeetna so you are pretty much getting screwed. Overall a decent place for food and the beer selection is decent.

Reindeer sausage on the pizza was a hoot. The food was good, the service was great, the beer selection so-so. Remember that this is a pizza place that serves beer. They had a couple of drafts from Alaska Brewing and some bottles. Not a destination, but a nice place to stop if your in the neighborhood.

Talkeetna is out of the way. You have to go up a 15 mile spur of Park Hwy to even get there and the road literally deadends in town. The closest road other than Parks Hwy is hundreds of miles away. It is, however, the starting point for most climbers looking to conquer Mt. McKinley and draws a fair share of tourists. Iím actually not sure thereís anything there that doesnít depend entirely on tourists to stay in business. Still, the locals recommend this place and the pizza was excellent. Reindeer sausage makes a great pizza topping. I was actually surprised at the beer selection. There was no macro on tap although I think there was one tap reserved for Red Strip or something. Most was Alaska-brewed beers and a few Northwestern beers. They even had Alaskan Big Nugget Barleywine on tap. Not a bad little place for a few beers and some decent pizza.
