Bars & Breweries
Most people travel to Haines for the adventure and vast wilderness that surrounds the town. While Haines Brewery and Port Chilkoot Distillery are making the news on their award-winning suds and spirits, visitors are now adding these on their “must do while in Haines” list. Sampling and sipping beer, craft gin, or infused vodka which is produced and shared in our tasting rooms or pubs with natural products found locally, is time well spent. Hand gathered herbs like spruce tips and local berries are used to produce and infuse the flavors that many have come to enjoy. Our local pubs have stories to tell of their own, one shows off their 1886 back bar, one was originally a hardware store, and one a brothel.
Great Alaska Craft Beer & Home Brew Festival made its first appearance in 1992 and is proud to be Alaska’s oldest craft beer festival!
