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.

Big store on the Old Seward Highway ( I think the address listed here is wrong...) Ample selection of Alaska made products including the Celestial meads, some PNW, Lost Abbey, and a Unibroue and Dieu du Ciel selection that actually offends me as a Canadian who can’t get half that in my own province. Mostly grabbed Midnight Sun products with a few others. Service was good, but we didnt have too many questions. Prices seemed a bit pricey for some things, but I don’t have anything to compare to really since I don’t normally have access to those products so they might be average.

There are several of these located throughout Anchorage - the one I visited was at 4140 Old Seward Highway which seems to be the largest in the city. Has a great selection of Alaskan and other Pacific Northwest brewers. Most are sold only in six packs - with an exception of a few bombers. Has a decent selection of Belgians - counted at least 25 or so on two different shelves. I picked up a bomber of Elysian Perseus Porter here on my last day in the city just so I would not walk out empty handed - already had stocked up earlier in the week at Yukon Spirits. Overall a decent place - just not as catering to the beergeek.

Super beer selection. But be sure to talk to the beer tenders they will know if the stuf has sat for along time.

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 selection of micro’s, local, and imports. Good prices and even better prices if you shop the sales. Good service, just don’t expect anyone there to tell you the difference between a Belgium Dubbel and Tripel.

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.

Visited on a Saturday afternoon back in September, this huge warehouse of liquor has an incredible selection. Beers from Quebec that we don’t get in Ontario are found here in abundance -- Unibroue and Diel du Ciel! Tons of local Midnight Sun bombers and Belgian selections, nothing overly expensive. Absolutely worth the bus ride out.
