Year Round: Wednesday-Sunday // 2:30pm - 6:30pm

Anchorage Brews

Imagine your frosty cold pint with a storyteller sidecar and you’re imagining an afternoon with big swig.

Our tours are as much about the history of Alaskan beers, the masters who brew them and the locals who drink them, as they are about tasting the beers themselves*.

During your 4-hour adventure, your Big Swig Hoperator will escort you around town and off the beaten path by van, as you explore 3 of Anchorage's finest breweries.

Tickets include a minimum of 14 beer tastings from 3 different brewery stops, charcuterie boards at Midnight Sun Brewing Co., roundtrip transportation and 4 hours of stories you’ll be sure to recount to your friends back home.
*Okay, so tasting the beers is the most important. Who are we kidding? Big Swig’s our name.

The Breweries


Since opening in 2011, this quaint taproom has become a magnet for locals who know good beer. Proof that even the young cubs can hang with the old grizzlies.


Anchorage’s oldest brewery, Midnight Sun has medaled at both the Great American Beer Festival and the World Beer Cup. Tastes like victory. BOLD BEER. BREWED HERE.


Cynosure (pronounced sin'-oh-sure and meaning the North Star) crafts Belgian-style ales and socialbe lagers with a focus on balance and drinkability. Enjoy these well-balanced, subtly sophisticated brews in Cynosure's convivial taproom.


Old World Tradition...The Alaskan Way. Turnagain Brewing specializes in Belgian Style and Sour Beers.
