This place was great. Had the brown ale which was good. Also got the sample brews. All the beers were great. Not a bad beer in the bunch. Must be the water in Skagway. The brewery is at the far end of town and away from the tourist traps when you first arrive into town. The service was good and very knowledgeable about the beers they had on tap. I could not believe that in a small town there was a great place to go and have a great fresh beer. I wish this beer was around on the east coast. If you are ever in Skagway, Alaska this is a must stop.

this place was a welcome change from the more touristy things to do in town. we visited the place for about three or four hours and it was busy the whole time. it's quite small, so it seems surprising it never got too loud. the beer menu was small but they did carry beers from other breweries. after trying their beers (pretty good for the most part) i ordered a lindemans framboise. the bartender suggested mixing it with some youngs double chocolate, as they keep it on hand for that reason alone. friendly staff and visitors there.

Surprise find during an Alaskan cruise. This brewpub is located toward the far end of the main drag of downtown Skagway. Make sure to pick up a coupon book as I got a free hat with purchase of a sampler.
The interior is a green/yellow color scheme with lots of wood. The bar is on the left side, with table seating on the right. The brewing equipment is not visible but is on another floor.
Skagway Brewing has 6-7 beers on draught, including one or two seasonals. I did not see what bottles, if any, were available. 4 of the beers are available in a sampler as well. The beers are somewhat unique, including a Spruce Tip Pale and Wee Heavy included with the more typical Stout, Amber etc. All of the beers were above average, with a couple being very good.
Service was good on a weekday late morning. The place was really getting busy (with the majority of the clientele being cruisers getting samplers so they could get a free hat - they clearly adopted the South Park model). The bartender tried to find the brewmaster to come talk to us but he was not around. The staff had a good understanding of the available beers.
We did not try any food on the visit.
Overall this brewpub is a gem that is an absolute must-stop if for some reason you find yourself in Skagway.

Stopped by on my Alaska cruise. BA had the location as closed so I was excited to find it open.
They had 6 of their beers on tap along with several other Pacific NW guest taps.
The waitress was very slow, but to be fair the place was pretty busy. I had a stout and spruce tip IPA both of which were pretty good. I also sampled the Red which was nice as well.
I had a couple pretzels and they were big, soft, homemade and damn good. The mustard was nice as well.
It's nice to see them back open, and if the crowd was any indication of what's to come I think they could be around for quite sometime (at least during cruise season)
