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 #84: Grilled Salmon with Mango Chutney at Splitsville in Disney Springs

RunDisney’s Virtual Race Series celebrates 80 years of Marvel. While we were up at Disney completing the August 5K in the series, we got some great food at Splitsville in Disney Springs.  

Mike Crave, General Manager, sat down with us and took us through some of his favorites from the menu.  One of them is the Grilled Salmon with Mango Chutney.  The salmon is grilled and tastes so fresh atop the sticky rice.  The broccoli is topped with a flavorful garlic butter sauce.  This entree would be great after a long run or actually anytime. (Bonus hint:  Mike says it is great blackened!)

THAT’S A WRAP

Stay tuned for more from Splitsville throughout the week.  Mike, was so nice to sit down with us and give us a tour of his favorites from the menu.  There were so many amazing flavors that we couldn’t fit them all in one episode, so we will be sharing them as quick bites throughout the week.  Everyone should know about the elevated food, drinks, and fun at Splitsville.
