Went to Humpyís twice for lunch on a recent business trip, so I canít comment on it being crowded at night, or crowded during peak season. First, the food rocked. I had the Halibut tacos on my first visit and the Crab Roll on my second visit. Both items kicked my ass. Great food. The beer selection was full of Alaskan beers and rotates often. There were Belgians and some others on draft as well. Around 30 drafts total. Parking is a pain, as you have to pay no matter what. Service was friendly and the bartender knew about each beer and recommended other menu items. Humpyís pretty much is everything a beer bar and restaurant should be. Great beer, great food and great service. If Iím even in Anchorage again, this will be my first stop.
A must vistit if your a beer lover in Anchorage AK. Great beer ontap (more than I can count) an alaways changing beer list an almost daily event. Set aside a full day and taste threw all the beers and stay for a bite to eat youíll never want to leave! Check their schedule for fun bar events Trivia, Board Night etc.
An appealing authentic old "dive" kind of place, with tall 5-seat tables all aronds the room, the bar in the center. Loads of taps as well as a number of bottles. First, contrary to implications by earlier reviewers, Humpyís does offer many of its brews in 4-ounce samples @ $2 per pour. The service is friendly in a down-home sort of way, the staff is knowledgeable about the beer list, and the food is the usual but grub, but well done. Good for a stop if you are in Anchorage.
We arrived just before the Barleywine festival let out and were able to get a table. Our waiter was great, he spent time answering our questions even though he got flooded by customers. The selection of beer available was amazing, Our friends got food and I did look over the menu, typical pub fair. Great place downtown and close to other great beer stops.
Went here after Sub Zero for a few pints. Great selection of beers but we didnít eat anything. Just sat around, listened to the band and
Gets crowded and loud, walking distance to Glacier Brewing and Sleeping Lady, good times!
This is a true man cave of beer (as advertised). Dark, a bit dank, old shcool tavern look with a nice beer selection, with some imports and rareties. The food is bar food meets Alaskan seafood. Had the halibut Benedict, which was good if pricey (15$). Will offer free tastes, and for the local stuff, some sampler glasses.
Largeand friendly place, a bit scruffy in a nice way. Extensive local beer selection, including multiple not yet rated. Food is tasty and varied. Good stop.

My favorite place in Anchorage for locals and tourist alike. Great beer selection and there is always a fantastic special for lunch or diner! Best Halibut and chips in town period.
Also try the salmon spread.

Sort of a rundown, old locals and college-kids looking place, which is kinda my style. TVs and radio going at the same time so you donít have to think were a bit annoying, but not nearly as loud as most places. Was a Sunday when it wasnít too busy and service was really lackluster. Thatís really my only complaint, and I know this is usually just related to high turnover in staff. I donít think this was the case here; they were catering to locals-only on this start of the tourist season Sunday afternoon. Otherwise, a great beer selection, with the typical Alaska pricing, especially for the food.
