    What to Expect
    Make your way to the meeting point in downtown Anchorage in the afternoon and meet your tour “hoperator,” who will give you an informative overview of Alaska’s beer culture from a local's perspective before driving you to your first of three included tasting tours.

    Get your taste buds ready for Alaska’s best brews as you visit pioneering breweries and and trendy tap rooms. In all, you'll visit 3 of the best breweries in Anchorage. Listen as your guide tells you about the history of Alaskan beers, the founding brewery fathers, and what makes Alaska’s beer culture stand out. Take in the awe-inspiring scenery of Anchorage’s dramatic skyline, with soaring mountains as the natural backdrop.

    Stop into Anchorage’s oldest brewery and taste why it was medaled at the World Beer Cup. Enjoy the chef’s selection of appetizers as you taste the beers. Sip on some hoppy goodness at a newcomer to Alaska’s beer scene. Then finish at one of the fastest growing breweries in the state. By the end of the tour, you’ll have a good idea of what makes Alaskan beer great, and what makes Anchorage such an appealing city.
