Tastings, beer and gear

Alaskan Brewing Co. has been located in the same building since we first opened our doors in 1986. All Alaskan beer is still brewed and bottled right here in beautiful Juneau, Alaska. We also have a tasting room and gift shop on site. Come by for a beer and pick up some beer gear while you’re here!

The Brewery

Beer for sale!

All our beer is brewed and bottled at our facility here in Juneau, and we’re quite proud of that! We sell individual bottles, 6-packs, 12-packs and cases of our beers, as well as 5-gallon kegs (about 40 16 oz pints) of beer. Legally, we can only sell one 5-gallon keg per customer per day. Keg purchases come with a pump and a sleeve of cups. Kegs are to be returned within 90 days of purchase. We cannot reserve kegs in advance.

Availability of each flavor varies depending on the season and our brewing schedule.

Tasting Room

Join the fun!

While as a production-based facility we are not able to offer behind-the-scenes tours of our facility, during the summer, Alaskan Brewing offers guided tastings for $20. We can talk you through your tasting to learn about the history of Alaskan Brewing Co. and how beer is made, along with other fun Alaska history and factoids. The tasting room is open all year round and our Brew Crew is totally stoked to teach you about our beer, offer advice about your visit to Alaska, or simply talk shop, if you’re a brewer or beer superfan yourself  – whenever you may visit!

Guests over the age of 21 are welcome to enjoy a selection of our beer at the tasting bar. In addition to our flagships and fan favorites, our selection also includes brews not available elsewhere on tap, like our awesome Crew Brews, Rough Drafts, and Treadwell Barrel Aged Series.

When you tip the Brew Crew, we pass the generosity of our guests on to our community. Each year, the Alaskan Brew Crew gives our collection of annual tips and proceeds from fundraisers, which has topped $20,000, to a local nonprofit organization. In 2018, the Alaskan Brew Crew voted to provide tip donations to the Alaska Network on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault.
