We like to check out different breweries when we travel. Alaskan Brewery did not disappoint. Our guide was well-informed about the beer and the brewery. We enjoyed learning the history of the brewery and the way that new beers are chosen and introduced. There is a small selection of merchandise at the brewery and there is a much larger store... More

We had a wonderful time at the Alaskan Brewery and had a great tour and tasting of their wonderful beers. Our guide was very knowledgeable an entertaining. It was very interesting learning the history of the brewery and about the different beers. The tasting room was a fun time and you get to try about 6 different brews.

The only way you can get this tour through our cruise line was if you bike to it and we didn't want to chance the weather or exert the effort! Our group of four strolled downtown from the cruise terminal in Juneau and about midway through town on the right hand side is the Alaskan Brewing Co. store. It has... More

We loved this brewing company. The tour was informative and the free samples at the end were all delicious. Out of all the ones I tasted I liked Alaskan Amber the most.

I am guessing that the people who gave the Alaskan Brewing Company tour a 1 or 2 star rating are either writing their reviews during their AA meetings, or are the same people who stand outside of a bar at closing time to yell at patrons. Not sure how you can go wrong with a free tour that is provided... More

We drove here while in Juneau (although for cruise shippers, there is a shuttle from the ABC depot downtown). Samples are free so that you can find the beer you like. You can then buy beer or merchandise. Good beer - the Amber is a good historic recipe.

First on getting here. Shuttle was 15 dollars round trip. Cab from the city est 18 on way. More than three = cab it. Otherwise it's a 15 dollar beer tasting as the tasting is free. As others note, There isn't a tour rather you are in a room where they tell you the story with windows into the brewer.... More

Took the shuttle from downtown, interesting drive and entertaining driver. Informative employee oversaw a tasting session of 6 beers. Delivered back to town in a little under 2 hours. Highly recommended.

We took the shuttle from the downtown Alaskan Brewery store out to the brewery which is about 4-5 miles away. It costs only 15 bucks and once you get there the beer samples are all free! You get to try the beers while they give a talk about the brewery and how they created the beers. The smoked porter is... More

My family enjoyed this trip from our Norwegian cruse line stop in Juneau, Alaska. We had a great time and very much enjoyed the excursion. We highly recommend the trip.
