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 #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.

RED Quick Bite #68: Ramen Noodles at Asian Kitchen with Cameraman Dana

In this Quick Bite, our cameraman, Dana, tries one of his favorite dishes, Ramen Noodles, at Asian Kitchen! This is a continuation of our series recapping our visit to Tampa, Florida for our half marathon at the Publix Gasparilla Distance Classic Weekend!

This restaurant takes a variety of Asian influences and puts a unique, fast, and fresh take on them. The Ramen Noodles that Dana tried at Asian Kitchen were topped with pork belly, although you can have any protein you want - chicken, pork belly, shrimp, or brisket just to name a few!  Dana said that it felt very much like coming home because he grew up on authentic Asian cuisine from his next door neighbor, who was originally from Thailand. 

Be sure to drop by Asian Kitchen if you are in the area.  The food is amazing. (Did we mention they do their own smoked meats, original sauces, and dry rubs for their dishes?)

Be sure to visit Asian Kitchen’s website or their Instagram (which had our mouths watering before we even arrived in the Tampa Bay area!)

Thank you, Lisa, for the outstanding dishes and for welcoming us in like family!
