Nice brewery to visit if your stopping by in port. They usually open up earlier when a ship comes into port. You can walk here from town thru the trails and is down the street from the raptor exhibit.
If your in port ,this is a worth while stop. Fantastic beer selection all made in house. Favorite Alaskan Brewery
