We will make a handful of stops to talk about the natural landscape and historic events that have shaped Anchorage over the years.

After your 3 hr. bike adventure, enjoy some free time in downtown for lunch and sightseeing before the afternoon brewery tour.

The afternoon will be spent by van exploring Alaska’s rapidly growing craft beer industry. Your Big Swig Tour's Hoperator will lead you through the Anchorage craft beer scene from grain to glass as we get a behind the scenes look into this thriving industry.
