About Alaskan Brewery and Bottling Company
Alaskan Brewery and Bottling Company opened in 1986 by Marcy and Geoff Larson. The Larsons turned out to be a match made in beer-making heaven. Geoff was a chemical engineer and his wife, Marcy, was an accountant with a flair for research. She was able to find a list of ingredients and method of brewing from a since-closed brewery in Alaska from the early 20th century. Geoff created a bath of an authentic, Gold Rush-era beer which is now the Alaskan Amber and cemented him as the Alaskan Brewery brewmaster! The rest, they say, is history. Believe it or not, it was the first brewery in Juneau since the repeal of Prohibition! Since its first opening, Alaskan Brewery has expanded its distribution to 20 states and is one of the top-awarded breweries in the history of the Great American Beer Festival! Visit the Brewery
Alaskan Brewery is located at 5429 Shaune Drive in Juneau, Alaska. When you visit, you can purchase any of beers in individual bottles, six-packs, and 12-packs, as well as 5-gallon kegs (the kegs do have to be returned within 90 days). During the summer, you can enjoy a guided tasting for just $20! You’ll learn a little more about the history of the company, how the beers are made, and other fun bits of Alaska trivia! You can also enjoy the brews at the onsite bar. Best of all, when you tip the staff here, it gets passed on to charity. They have given more than $20,000 back to the community. That’s drinking for a cause!
