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 #75: Green Bus Brewing in Huntsville

QUICK BITE: GREEN BUS BREWING

My cameraman had a work trip to Huntsville a couple of weeks ago.  We spent some time around some amazing exhibits at the US Space and Rocket Center.  We stayed near the Von Braun Center and Big Spring International Park, which was a great park to run in right outside our hotel.

Huntsville has their own Craft Beer Trail that incorporates the fantastic breweries and tap houses we had the opportunity to visit.  So many that we could not cover them all on the episodes.

In this Quick Bite, we recap Green Bus Brewing.  We did a live broadcast from there.  We had flights of their tasty original beers, but did you know that they also make meads, ciders, and their own beer cheese with two of their own brews?

We tried these in flights:

  • Tiramisu Milk Stout

  • Twickenham London Porter

  • Dominant Red

  • Camper Van Blonde

  • Downtown Julie Brown

Their beer cheese is made with their Big Spring IPA and Camper Van Blonde.  It was sharp, cheesy, and tangy from the beer. A must when visiting!

Their meads,  Spiced Orange at 16% and Earl Grey at 14%, pack a PUNCH! But they are tasty, too!

Their tap room is so cool too.  Such nice and knowledgeable people are behind the bar.  Wood floors on two different levels, the brewing setup is upstairs and it is also extra seating or what could be a great place to have meetings.  They have the front of a VW Bus over their bar on the first floor and walls that incorporate some beautiful brick.

We are so glad we went and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area!

RED Episode #24 Levis JCC Sprint and Sip in Boca Raton

RUN

Last July, we went to Boca Raton to run the Levis JCC Run, Sweat, and Beers Race. We stumbled upon a great race.  It was on a Thursday, and that was the day I had off from work, and it was to support a community organization, so that is why we decided to go.  But we discovered a great organization, a well-organized run, and a great brewery at the after party.  So we registered for their inaugural Sprint and Sip, which was originally scheduled for September.  Hurricane Irma forced it to be postponed until March 2018. It is a great little nighttime race series, all contained within a park, and with beer at the after party.    This time, we got great little medals that double as bottle openers!  If you are in Boca Raton, check these little races out.

 

EAT

The reason I got so fascinated with this restaurant was that their logo looked like a comic book and caught my eye, but the food is so delicious at Kapow Noodle Bar.  The mural inside is beautiful and the food is next level.  We tried the Singapore Street Noodles. Their curry flavor and pork belly make me wish I could have it all over again as I write these show notes.  Mouthwatering goodness!

 

DRINK

Barrel of Monks Brewery is nestled in a little industrial park, but the vibe inside is comfortable with great lighting and barrels mounted on walls.  Swag that pays tribute to classic 80’s movies and video games is the icing on the cake.  The beer is so tasty.  We tried the Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout Den of Sins.  Amazing!
