RED Quick Bite #88: Midnight Sun Brewing Company in Anchorage

It’s time for another Quick Bite!  This is the last bite-sized bonus from our trip to the Anchorage RunFest

We had a late flight on Monday following our completion of the Half Marathon, so we decided to explore Midnight Sun Brewing Company’s loft and highly recommended beer and food.

It was a short 20-minute Lyft from our hotel in downtown Anchorage to Midnight Sun Brewing Company’s loft and brewery. Their brewing space and kitchen are located on the lower level.  The loft is on the second level and has indoor and outdoor space where you can enjoy food and beer.  They have a kitchen in the space where they make some tasty food, and we got the “Off the Hook” Chorizo Dip.  Yum!

We loved the “beer forward” board where, after you buy someone a beer, you can post a note telling everyone why you chose to pay it forward to that person.

In this quick bite, we talk about the flights our beer tender recommended, both a “light” and a “dark” flight.  Each flight was inexpensive and had several tasty options for whatever pleases your palate.

We wanted to stay longer and sample more of their beer and food menu, but alas, we had to make our way to the airport.  If we get back to Anchorage, we will make a point of getting there when we can stay for a while, have a meal, and enjoy a pint or two.

THAT’S A WRAP

RED Quick Bite #87: Beer Flights at Glacier Brewhouse in Anchorage

It’s time for another Quick Bite!  A bite-sized bonus from our trip to the Anchorage RunFest

We talked about the upscale celebratory meal we had at Glacier Brewhouse in Episode 77 when we recapped the Anchorage RunFest Half Marathon.  Check that out if you haven’t because that is the way to celebrate!  

Not only was the food great, but the original beers they have on tap are quite tasty, too. So we decided to break down the flights of beer we had as we celebrated the completion of the half and Dana’s comeback to the half marathon distance.  We sampled 5 beers each so we could bring you a true tour of their original brews!

If we are lucky enough to make it back to Anchorage, we will be back to Glacier Brewhouse!  

THAT’S A WRAP

Stay tuned for more from Anchorage.  We still have some additional awesome food and beverage options when celebrating your accomplishments in Anchorage.

RED Episode 77: Anchorage RunFest Half Marathon, Glacier Brewhouse, and Moosestooth Pub

RUN

Welcome back to Anchorage RunFest!  This week we recap our half marathon experience.  This race includes beautiful weather with the exception of a really strong head or tail wind from time to time and beautiful mostly off-road course.  It is mainly flat and scenery is simply amazing. Beautiful trails with picturesque water views, beautiful trees, and a paved course.  The time limit is so generous and you get to interact with others on the course that are running the full marathon and the 49k race.  Other runners on this course are so friendly!  The water and sports drink stops as well as port-a-potties are plentiful so you have what you need to be successful.  The medal is a beautiful metallic purple reflective color.  And we ran into Bart Yasso on the way back to the finish line in downtown Anchorage.    There was a complimentary beer from Humpy's Great Alaskan Alehouse after the race was over.  We’d come back and do this one again!

EAT

After the half marathon we really indulged by celebrating at Glacier Brewhouse.  We’d say that this is a special occasion kind of meal.  Good news:  reservations are taken on Open Table and we highly recommend them.  We had an appetizer of Smoked Salmon Dip that was delicious.  Alder wood grilled entrees are plentiful on this menu, including a Ribeye we had.  We also sampled the Herb-Crusted Alaska Halibut.  We each added a half pound of the Alaskan King Crab Legs because when in Alaska... you know what to do! We finished off the meal with the Original Peanut Butter Pie.  Everything was so tasty and Travis was a great server!  We recommend this place for sure.  We will be talking about their beer on an upcoming Quick Bite, so stay tuned!

DRINK

Moose’s Tooth serves Broken Tooth Brewing Beer and when we were waiting for and eating the amazing pizza that we talked about on Episode 76 , we sampled a few of their original beers.  Dana’s offerings were cleverly named Van Damme Belgian Strong Ale and Darth Delirium Belgian-Style Stout, while Aimee had Chugach Sessions Cream Ale and Hard Apple Ale. They have a wide variety and something for every palate.  We wanted to try them all!

THAT’S A WRAP

Stay tuned for more from Anchorage because we couldn’t fit all the amazing food and beverage in one episode, as you can already tell!
