At press time, the hottest new brewery in Anchorage is King St. Brewing Company. Since opening in 2011, this quaint taproom—located in a small industrial district—has become a magnet for locals who know good beer. KSBC has a fantastic lineup focusing on traditional, European beer styles rather than big bold standouts. Under Alaskan law, breweries must close by 8 p.m., so this is a great stop for happy hour. Try one of their custom blends from the tap, or stick with a true Czech pilsner. Don’t forget to grab a 4-pack of tall-boy IPA cans, great for camping trips.
