Brewery · Hidden Gem · Food & Drink
For years friends trekked across tide flats and through coastal forests to our home, for the taste of Paul's fine brews. Then with the encouragment of local folks, and growing from those homebrew recipes, we took the leap to open the brewery. Starting off with dairy tanks from the midwest for fermenters, we scrubbed off the old butter and Paul started brewing. We grew quickly, exchanged the dairy tanks for closed fermenters, and now regional demand is more than Paul can supply. All our beers start with organic base malts, and use no filtering or pasteurizing, to produce one of Alaska's finest hand-crafted beers.

Currently, in our location in Dalton City at the Southeast Alaska State Fairgrounds in Haines Alaska, we have several beers available on tap. Beer can be purchased by the sample glass or pint to consume on premise, or by the liter or half gallon to go.
Haines Brewing Company is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , world travel planner Edition.

  • While the beers were well-brewed and delicious, the owner clearly lacked an appreciation for his customers and was not interested in providing a customer service experience. He was particularly unpleasant and inattentive, so we chose to explore elsewhere. Also, they have odd hours (closing before 7 PM on a Friday) and didn't accept credit/debit cards (cash only). We find the latter considerably inconvenient as Haines is located a short distance from the Canadian border and receives regular foreign cruise ship visitors. It seems like a change is needed for their customer-facing employees.
  • We went here strictly for Sitka Spruce Tip Beer. It was delicious! A nice roomy brewery with seating and good conversation with other cruisers in Haines. Also the brewmaster was good to talk with about different beers. A cool experience at a clean brewery with good beer at fair prices. We hope to return next year too!
