Not quite sure if this is the brown jug i went to, but it was across the street from gold rush (another large liquor store). This place was great. Tons of stuff I didn’t expect to see...lost abbey, lambics, most pnw. But they had a ton of descutes (abyss and black butte xx) and alaskan barley wine...for pretty f-ing cheap too. Staff was friendly too.
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.
A great place to get local and other craft brews. The selection is great, alot to choose from but they could get more. A large selection of wines but I dont know much in that area. The people are always willing to help, and have offered up some really good beers I would have overlooked.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
