Lively place, quite busy on my visit. Unlike Gold Rush, they are open year-round, but I suspect for most people thatís a moot point. It was early September and theyíd run through almost all of their beer, so only two house offerings on tap. Service was hit or miss - a couple bartenders were great, but another came on shift and struggled to acknowledge our existence.

Okay, not a bad place but limited taps lead me only to Chilkoot IPA, Blue Top Porter and Spruce Tip Ale. Friendly serviceable staff came fairly quick to serve me. Fairly clean and a well kept place. I had a mushroom swiss burger which was good. Overall, not what I was expecting. Spruce Tip was their best and they treated me like I was a tourist. Maybe, if they knew no cruise ships were in town they wouldíve realized I wasnít a tourist. Iíll only come back when they have more beers on tap. Average brewpub.

Nice looking pub, not special. Friendly staff.the regular brewer had broken his leg and was out, so the full line up was not available. The food menu was extensive, and nice. Reasonable priced place for a tourist trap especially. They have limited guest taps on as well, although nothing great. Their own beers are relatively decent. Worth a stop if youíre in this remote corner in the world.

You are in Alaska, how can the ambience go wrong? This is a great stop. The Spruce Tip Blonde Ale made our "list" which is saying a lot. There are only 13 beers on the list.
I highly recommend!

Stopped in there last summer on a Pacific NW trip with my wife... we were cruising and the boat had Alaskan beer that wasnít bad but we were eager to get off the boat and hang out in a local pub. This is a very small town and the brewery is a throw back to the old west saloon style. Nice rustic feel with alot of friendly locals who had as many questions about us eastcoasters as we did about their town. The brews were good solid beers but nothing too exciting... its been so long I wouldnít rate any of the beer I drank there but would recommend as a place to visit if your in Skagway ... but wouldnt go out of my way if Skagway was not on your list of destinations!

Canít believe I didnít rate any of their brews! Kind of kills me. From what I recall, really small and quaint home-town charm. Wait staff was incredibly attentive and the place was packed due to our cruise ship landing their. Food was really well prepared and piping hot on a cold day. Definitely worth stopping in if you are in port!

Nice alaska lodge type of vibe with about 5 good house brews on tap. The food was very good as well. Especially the fish and chips. As far as beers I recommend trying the spruce tip ale.

Quaint little saloon, only missing old-west style saloon doors. Was semi-full. Service was ok. Halibut fish and chips were better than excellent, they were incredible. Had Alaskan brews and some other as well as the house brands. Had a sampler of their house stuff for the ticks. Only decent place in town. Definitely worth the trip.

This place makes Skagway worth traveling to -- it is that good. Walk to the end of all of the touristy crap and take a seat at the bar. Order the fish & chips and start drinking. You will thank me. Two barrel aged barley wines when I was there. Best fish & chips I have ever had. London canít compete.

If you make it to Skagway and donít go here to have a few beers . . . well, you probably were just dreaming of Skagway. Donít even think of asking the bartender for any samples - with a few thousand people getting off cruise ships here each week during the summer months, he gets tired of people who donít even drink beer coming in, asking for a beer sample, and then leaving. So donít blame him for being a little grumpy by late August. Make sure you buy a hat before you leave - itís probably the second best thing they sell here, and will remind you of the best thing they sell here . . . that being the spruce tip pale ale.
