49th State Brewing Company  (1:00)

Dine at an authentic Alaskan original, with a menu featuring local ingredients, great beer, and Alaska-sized portions.

How unique is the 49th State? For starters, it’s the only brewpub restaurant here that serves Alaskan yak, in the form of a yak burger. Or tuck into the buffalo meatloaf, a specialty. Don’t miss the housemade Bavarian pretzel. And Fridays bring a special treat—a pig roast, with a pig from a local farm, roasted in ale and smoked over alder wood.

Speaking of beer, this is the place to come for it. The staff is 100% cicerone certified, meaning they know beer, including the proper glass for each type. The Solstice IPA pairs perfectly with any hearty meal; if you come for the pig roast, try the American-style white peach wheat or the German-style, gold medal-winning Smoked Marzen. Or sip on their flagship beer, the Golden Dahl (another gold-medal winner) which pairs well with the pretzel. If whiskey is more your thing, you’ll find nearly 300 choices (!), and a staff educated by a Master of Whiskey.

Sit inside or escape outdoors into the garden, where you’ll find a replica of the Into the Wild bus; climb on board to see the memorabilia. After all, you’re just 20 miles from where the original bus, and this one is (much) easier to find. Kids can play games out here while enjoying the children’s menu and its mac & cheese and PB&Js.

And don’t miss the events. June brings the Solstice Brewfest—a 2-day festival in the campground right next to the brewery. Or come for Augtoberfest, a Bavarian-style festival with live music and authentic Bavarian food. German sausages, anyone?!
