This is a great Alaskan style pub. A bit rustic on the inside, but that just adds to the charm. The food is great and not too overpriced. The draft beer menu is one of the best in Anchorage if not Alaska. They have a huge selection of local and imported beers of all different styles. This place can get crowed and loud in the evenings.
Atmosphere is nothing fantastic, sort of a dive bar meets diner slash night club. First visit was late on a Saturday night with a jam packed weekend crowd. Loud music, and slowish service (to be fair it was busy) were off putting but that probably had more to do with me being tired from a long day. Returned the next day for a late breakfast, service was friendly and fast, food was pretty decent (scrambled eggs with potatoes and reindeer sausage) and reasonably priced. Awesome spot to watch the game over breakfast and a beer actually! Tap list was pretty decent, lots of local Alaskan products and PNW representation. Well worth a visit, but personally I preferred my AM visit.
Stopped in Anchorage for 2 days and all I heard was GO TO HUMPY’S. Wise choice. Salmon was excellent and went well the GREAT brew selection. They had some of my fav WA beers not to mention some locals and Alaskan Brewing beers which I love. Really liked it and it was nice to have some good brews before heading to Korea AGAIN. Wont forget it and I advise any and all headed to Anchorage/Elemendorf AFB area to hit up HUMPYS! Oh yeah..the bartender even knew her brews. OUT FREAKIN STANDING. Humpys is where its at.
This is the place to go when you want a good meal, and a great local beer. Christoff and crew take great care to get the best beers available in the state at your fingertips. The food is excellent get their early tables fill up fast on the weekends.
Food - not typical dive food, but this is not the place to go for a meal
Beer - excellent selection of local anchorage brews, but nothing unique to this bar. You might have more fun hitting up the individual brewpubs, but if you can only go one place this should be it.
Great downtown Anchorage craft beer bar. 52 freaking taps!...all craft beer nothing from the big guys. Everything from Deschutes, Midnight Sun, Stone, Moose’s Tooth, Pyramid, Stone, Full Sail, over 10 Belgians’, Sleeping lady and somehow they even managed to get in Monk’s Flemish Sour....
If you are a beer geek you need to go here if in Anchorage. Great place, exactly the type of beer bar I would want to run. I did not eat here but the food looked good.
Bar maid was hot...but did not know much about the beers and wasn’t one for chatting. She even made the comment at one point "I don’t know I just pour them" when I asked about a certain beer. Not good at a beer bar like this!
Carft beer tap handles, posters and tins all over the place.
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 you’ll never want to leave! Check their schedule for fun bar events Trivia, Board Night etc.
Visted back when I attended Alasken BW fest. A well worn bar that might be a bit run down, but in a good way. Its popular. Big J shaped bar. Booths & tables on either side of it. Gets loud as it has kind of low ceilings in the scheme of things. I had good service, though I was at the bar mainly or wasn’t here at peak volume. Great selection of Alaskan brews, good selection of Washington & Oregon brews, Few others. Had solid pub food and a good breakfast (yes breakfast if you wanna watch football up there you have to get up early) I had alot of fun here, met up with JSquire and friend here. Hung out Ben, Assistant brewer at Pelican brewpub during Colts-Steelers playoff game. Felt like a home away from home.
Standard hang for Anchorage. If you’re looking for a wide selection on tap, this is the place for you. Service is usually good, though they get very busy sometimes. Smoking allowed in the whole place and it gets really noisy, especially with the live bands (almost every night). Food is pretty good bar food with a couple pleasant surprises, but definitely not the very best in Anchorage. Some specialty stuff in bottles available, but the better stuff is around the corner at Sub Zero (owned by the same people).

I love this place, and it is my home base when I get to Anchorage. A great selection of Alaskan and PNW beers, and a lot of Belgian and other imports too. Maybe because I can’t get halibut tacos or good smoked salmon spread in Ohio, but the food is excellent. This is a must stop when in Anchorage.

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.
