Unique movie set locale in the fairgrounds. Check hours before you set foot from the ferry dock. Small, standing-only bar with immediate view into stainless steel brewhouse. Owner/brewer Paul very pesonable and informative. They sell all they can brew to locals, with growler fills very popular. Distinctive beers, especially the mellow and non-piney spruce-tip beer. Most go well with salmon! Local beerfest is an immediate sell-out.

BLUF: I didn’t care for this place. I was put off by the service from within a minute of being there. I’m saying that first so you can judge this review accordingly. A new looking brewery built in the cabin style. Clean, sparse interior. A few tables and a decently long bar. A fairly decent size outdoor beer garden with a lovely view to the mountains. The beer was solid. Nothing special but not bad. The spruce was the best of the few I tried. I don’t like this place. The service to visitors is what kills it, for me. I tried to order a flight- no dice. Not a problem, I’ve been to places that don’t serve flights before but I still do find it odd and off-putting. They will sell you a taster ... one at a time only. Weird, but not a deal breaker. When I asked the barkeep why, she said the brewer wants it that way because he doesn’t like that people drink different beers one after another. Uh, huh? I am the beer drinker, I will decide how I drink beers, thank you. I ordered my taster and went outside to enjoy it. Finished it a few minutes later and came back in only to find her selling six or seven tasters to two men. I asked her if I could also do that, since it seemed like it was ok and she again said no and that she had already explained why to me. I pointed to the men and she got flushed in the face and said well, maybe if I knew you. So, locals can drink beer how they want but us visitors must obey the brewmaster? No thanks. If I ever make it back to Haines I’ll make sure to drink at the local dives instead, where we were welcomed with a friendly conversation instead.

The brewery is built inside of one of the buildings of the Dalton City movie set of White Fang. Very cool location in a small town, literally. The head brewer is Paul Wheeler and he is an awesome host, but beware no cell phones are allowed in the brewery. He has at least 8 taps, where you can get anything from a sampler to a litter growler to go of his vast array of brews. I would recommend if you ever get a chance stop in you won’t be disappointed!

This place is part of the set of White Fang, which I found hilarious. Tiny spot, but with a respectable number of taps. No taps, just beer.

If you like beer and you find yourself in Haines, you absolutely must visit the Haines Brewing Co. An excellent little brewery easily found hiding in the fairgrounds of this little town. Paul makes some very tasty English style ales on his 3.5 barrel system. It’s not a brewpub or a restaurant, but you can get tasters of all the brews on tap. Once you find a couple you like, have ’em fill a .5 gal growler and/or a swing-top liter for you to take with you. All of the beers are good, but I found the Lookout Stout and the Black Fang Imperial Stout to be especially noteworthy.. (Perhaps due to the highly Alkaline and Calcium makeup of the water supply there?) The owner was very friendly, talkative and welcoming. Highly recommended.
