Large aptly named place. Lots of local stuff, but also a good selection of Belgian stuff we hadn’t seen elsewhere. Decent mead and sake choices too. Plenty of parking. Worth the short ride from downtown.
A large warehouse in central Anchorage offering a large selection of Alaska micros plus some PNW options. There is a growler station with a dozen or so taps. The prices are pretty good and staff quite helpful and friendly.
When they say warehouse they mean it, vast selection of beer and wine. Not to mention they have at least 10 taps to do growler purchase/fills. Lots of locals and regional beers fill the shelves. Service at the growler station is more than what anyone could ask for, but the rest seems like Costco. Worth the stop if in Anchorage.
Large open warehouse feel. Not as personal, that is to say "initmate" as La Bodega. There’s not really any reason to compare the two; I’m only doing so because they both sell beer, and are both categorized as a "Beerstore". Just because of sheer size they had a more expansive selection. They had a couple of taps in the back for growlers. They also had a decent Belgian selection, amongst other European brews. Fairly good prices for big-volume beer packs, like 30-packs, but their 22 oz. bottle weren’t cheaper. Overall, it was fine, and the service wasn’t bad at all, but I guess there’s a price you pay for the experience, too.
Big beer wine and liquor store. Big selection of Alaskan and PNW micros, as well as a few meads and ciders. They have a growler filing station with some nice kegged beers. Much bigger than la bodega and a little cheaper, but not quite the depth, especially on the meads. Really you should hit both if you go down there.
Stopped in just after hitting Bodega as it is just down the road. Bigger than Bodega, but not nearly as big as Gold Rush. The selection seemed to have more than Gold Rush, but I didn’t pay much attention to the prices. They had more than enough Midnight Sun stuff and also had some things that that I haven’t seen for sometime in Seattle...Black Gold and Raspy XII. Didn’t look at the mead selection or the liquor. If you do find some ’older’ things though, I may be a little leery of the lighting conditions.
