Excursion Overview

Kick back and relax Alaskan style with this Alaskan beer tasting tour!

Hold onto your hats for Alaska's rich history of brewing, and this tasty excursion is your opportunity to partake in it. From the explorers of the 1700s through the Gold Rush era, many thirsty Alaskans have been able to enjoy locally made beers and we want you to enjoy them too!

The Alaskan Brewing Company was the 67th brewery in the country and the first brewery in Juneau since Prohibition. Alaskan beers reflect many of the same characteristics of beers that were brewed here during the Gold Rush era. From the historically based Alaskan Amber recipe to alder-smoked malts and Sitka spruce tips, Alaskan beers reflect Juneau's local brewing history and innovation.

While sampling our award-winning beer, learn about the history of Alaskan Brewing Co. and how beer is made. View our original 10-barrel brewing system and some of the inner workings of our brewery. Buy great beer gear, including apparel, glassware, and fun novelties. Best of all, meet our Brew Crew while sampling their work.

Would be nice if you had some soda crackers to clean palette between tastings. My wife appreciated that when she did not like one sample, your staff gave her a different sample for the same bottle cap. We did recommend to staff on the ship to try the next time they are in port. Had a great time. Staff were open to our travelling gnome.

This was a relaxed and informative good time. They have some items specific to the brewery for sale there. Not a big time commitment and we did like the beers! Making use of the tour operator made the trip super easy and he had some cool insights on living and working in Alaska
