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!

RED Quick Bite #86: Matanuska Brewpub’s Awesome Food Options

The Matanuska Brewpub Downtown location was just steps away from our hotel in Anchorage when we were there for the Anchorage RunFest.  We recapped their awesome beer selection on RED Episode 76.  But they have an awesome menu of delicious food, too.

So, we ordered two items from their menu.  We are going to break them down for you on this quick bite.

The first:  The Shrimp and Artichoke Flatbread that was $10.  It had a crispy flatbread crust with huge shrimp and big pieces of artichoke hearts as well as tarragon, mozzarella, sun-dried tomato, capers, and garlic. Every last bite was so tasty!

The second:  The Alaska Pot Roast Sandwich that was $15.  it was huge!  The sandwich had a generous serving of pot roast on French baguette and topped with brown gravy and garnished with parsley.  It was such a great comfort food option!

Matanuska had an outstanding variety of beer but also a fantastic menu.  If we ever return to the Anchorage area, and we are already planning... we will be back and we highly recommend both their beer and food to you!

THAT’S A WRAP

Stay tuned for more from Anchorage.  We still have the half marathon to recap plus some additional awesome food and beverage options when celebrating your accomplishments in Anchorage.
