Description

Go behind the scenes and learn the art of craft beer-making at four popular breweries during this full-day tour from Anchorage. Enjoy a 3-hour train ride to Talkeetna in the shadow of Denali before visiting four of Alaska’s best breweries and dining on a delicious packed lunch. This tour is the perfect opportunity to see small-town Alaska, meet locals and get a peek at the thriving beer-making industry.

The fun begins in Anchorage as your board an Alaskan Railroad train for the 3-hour journey to Talkeetna. A delicious breakfast is available for purchase, or just sit back, relax and enjoy the view. This is the perfect opportunity to look for wildlife out the window as you ride through the countryside.

At Talkeetna Station, in the shadow of famous Denali, meet up with your expert local guide and begin the beer pilgrimage. First, enjoy a private tour of Denali Brewing Company, the second-largest brewery in the state. After sampling some of the goods it’s time to head 75 miles south to the Mat-Su Valley while enjoying a delicious packed lunch provided by the Talkeetna Roadhouse. Depending on the day of the tour, next up is a stop at either Arkose Brewery in Palmer or Bearpaw River Brewing Company in Wasilla. Both options are located between the majestic peaks of the Chugach and Talkeenta Mountains and are thriving small communities. 

The third stop will be a short drive to smallest production brewery in the state- Bleeding Heart Brewery. Tucked away on an original colonial homestead farm in Palmer, AK, Bleeding Heart’s mission is to create unique, high quality ales and lagers in order to bring new craft drinkers and seasoned “craft life” veterans together.

In Eagle River, a small community near Anchorage, sits one of Alaska’s newest breweries, Odd Man Rush Brewing. Themed after the local love of hockey, this final stop offers a chance to meet the owners, taste the product and learn about the place’s history.  Receiving two Denali Awards from Alaska Business Monthly in 2016 for Best Brewery and Best Start-Up Business in Alaska, Odd Man Rush is ripe for success.

Return to Anchorage at the end of the day.
