We enjoyed 2 different meals or 2 non- consecutive days here. The food and beer were great both times. Enjoyed dinner one night and watched the World Cup during lunch a different day. The atmosphere was relaxed but far from lazy! Pricey, but no more than the competitors in is tourist town.

These folks know what to do with fresh sockeye salmon - you can have it planked, grilled, or in a great salad. We loved our meal there, and the Big DIPA is a great beer...

While waiting for our Flightseeing tour with Talkeetna Air Taxi, had lunch here. As a sorta-beer-snob, was very happy with the selection of beers and the food was terrific. My daughter had the reindeer meatloaf, which was wonderful!

Stopped for a quick beer on our walk in downtown Talkeetna. Good craft beer and the hubby bought a shirt. Quite crowded but looked like a fun place.

Stopped by for a beer and appetizer at the bar. Great atmosphere and good tasting beers. Tourist trap but a great memory of Talkeetna.

We were in Talkneeka and looking for someghing a little better than burgers so we tried Denali Brewing. We tried the broiled salmon with quinoa and kale along with the french onion soup. It was certainly better than burgers...but...the fish portion was small and the soup seemed heated rather than baked. Service was attentive and slightly rushed. Atmosphere was great... More

We discovered this place by accident. We were looking for the Denali park and the GPS took us to the look out point that is in Takeeta, Ak. We just happen to drive past the the Denali brewing Co and had to stop. The beer is very good, especially the higher proof ones. Samples are only 2.50 and there is... More

Solid food menu to go with really good craft beer. A must-visit if you are in or near Talkeetna (which is a great town to visit on the drive to/from Anchorage to Denali National Park or Denali State Park).

This was a great place to stop after a day of driving. Lots of beer choices to satisfy all the different preferences in our party from very dark to light. Excellent pub fare, nice patio, good service. Willing to make menu accommodations to fit dietary needs. Excellent sweet potato fries-large pieces instead of match stick style.

I tried the beer cheese and the fish and chips. Both left a very bitter aftertaste. They make their own root beer which I wanted to try but they were out. The fish was extremely oily skI ended up taking the existing to get to the fish. True disappointment.
