As a quickly growing sector of the Alaska economy, it seems a year doesn’t pass without a new crop of breweries showing up somewhere in the state. Here’s our latest roundup of what’s new on the Alaska brewery scene so you can add to your must-do list on your next vacation to the Last Frontier.
Matanuska Brewing Company
With its taproom opening just last month, Matanuska Brewing Company in Palmer is one of the newest breweries in the state. The brewery is located on the former Matanuska Maid Dairy Facility with a small tasting room onsite and the beer is distributed in both cans and kegs. Beers available include the Snow Bike White, the Sky Cab Gold pale ale and the Long Track IPA.
Glacier BrewHouse Brewery
While not a new brewery in town, you can now get your favorite Glacier BrewHouse beer in cans – perfect for camping, hiking, fishing and all of your favorite Alaska activities.
Devils Club Brewing Co.
In Juneau, Devils Club Brewing Co. opened its doors this April in the city’s historic Hellenthal Building after a successful Kickstarter campaign. On tap now is a stout, two India pale ales, a wit, an apricot beer and a Saison to name a few. Its three founders, all from Juneau, bring an array of expertise to the new brewery and are excited to open their doors in their hometown.
Turnagain Brewing Company
In the works right now and slated to open this summer is the Turnagain Brewing Company, which will specialize in Belgian-style and sour beers. We’re excited for a new member to join the club!
