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 Episode #76: Anchorage RunFest Recap Part 1, Moose’s Tooth, and Matanuska Brewpub

RUN

Welcome to Anchorage RunFest! This week, we recap Saturday’s events on our trip, including the Expo and the Anchorage Mile.  The Anchorage Mile events included a Women’s, Men’s, Military, and Community Mile that went off throughout the morning.  We had a great time running the flat course that looped 1.5 times around a great park where an outdoor post-race event was held with tents setup with games for kids, a truck serving coffee, post-race pizza, and hunting safety tips tent was set up.    Then we got the honor and privilege to hear Bart Yasso, Jeff Galloway, and World Record Holder for Double Amputees in the Marathon, Marko Cheseto motivate us and provide us with wisdom ahead of the longer races on Sunday.  Such great events to start the weekend off right!  We will recap our half marathon experience on next week’s episode, so stay tuned for more about this awesome weekend.  

EAT

Moose’s Tooth boasts the best pizza and beer in town.  It did not disappoint!  We arrived to find there was a wait.  It is not on Open Table, so be prepared to wait, but good news... there is an outdoor deck with a waiting area around a fire pit and beer from Broken Tooth Brewing.  We will recap the beers in a later episode.  But, that pizza was amazing!  We got a large so we could try two different kinds from the menu.  The Call of the Wild included Reindeer sausage!  The Brewhouse Favorite had chorizo sausage and Denali sauce, which is a unique ricotta-based white sauce with herbs and spices.  Crust was a thicker New York-style crust.  The wait staff was knowledgeable and friendly and the view from the outdoor patio where we ate was incredible.  You gotta stop by!

DRINK

Matanuska Brewpub in downtown Anchorage was only a few steps from our hotel!  Matanuska Brewing Company actually brews their beer in Palmer, but has several Brewpub locations in Eagle River and in Anchorage.  We tried a variety of their beers and were really pleased with their selection.  There is something for everyone from an IPA lover to someone who loves a fruit beer, and as you know, we love places like that.  They have a menu and, the sandwiches that came out looked amazing.  We would have gone back for the sandwiches, but we ran out of time!! 😞

THAT’S A WRAP

Stay tuned for more from the Anchorage RunFest including our recap of the half marathon and more great places to eat and drink as you celebrate your accomplishment.
