This is my third season in Alaska; the last time I was here was 2008. I remember back in my first season in 2007 the Skagway Brewing Co opening its doors. Back then it had a menu of various different beers from around the world and as it is at the end of the main street in Skagway, not many people visited it.
Four years later the place is heaving and you have to get there early to get a good seat! They have a selection of their own beers and a couple of guest brews. I’m a fan of their Spruce Tip Blonde as I mentioned in a previous post and have indulged in a few this season. Here are my tasting notes from their other styles:
Blue Top Porter
Real smokey taste with a hint of coffee and chocolate, very drinkale.
Boom Town Brown
My favourite after the Spruce Tip Blonde. A good malty taste with a hint of toffee
Chilkoot Trail IPA
This has a very bitter beginning with a nice grapefruit after taste, not a bad IPA
This one was too bitter for me as I'm not a fan of Pales but still quite refreshing.
