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.

The FREE guided beer tasting includes generous samples of four varieties on tap. The "guide" shares the brewery's history and describes the beer sampled, and the entire experience lasts approximately 40 minutes. While others have been disappointed, we found it to be interesting and entertaining, especially given the price and time commitment. Sara was an enthusiastic brewery representative and storyteller...

We had rented a car for the day and combined this with a visit to the Shrine of St. Therese and the salmon hatchery. I definitely recommend it, although we were expecting a tour which this is not. This is a free beer tasting. There was a young woman who spoke about the history of the brewery and how the... More

I have loved Alaskan Beer since my first trip to Alaska. Lucky enough to maintain my love affair with Alaskan Beer in my home state of Minnesota. When I got the chance to go to the brewery on my second trip to Alaska, I was so excited. We went into the tasting room to do a tour of four beers... More
