Located in South Anchorage, Midnight Sun offers crazy cool beers and fresh fabulous food with a modern industrial vibe.

Midnight Sun Brewing Company opened in May 1995 and is located in an industrial park in South Anchorage. We have "man v. nature" views: man-made metal and concrete are very evident but the Sleeping Lady and the Chugach Mountain range offer beautiful contrasts. 

THE LOFT
Our Alaska brewery license allows us to serve beer until 8 pm daily. We accept food orders up until 7:45 pm to keep in sync. This license also limits beer service to up to 36 ounces per person per day for on-site consumption (for here) and up to 5 gallons per person per day for off-site consumption (to-go).

Located on the second floor of our main building, the Loft offers 16 beers and 2 sodas on tap — all house-made. And we’ve established a daily menu of fresh fabulous fare — as well as exciting hot dish specials — to accompany our world-class beers. Our eclectic beers range from 4% wheat beers to over-12% imperial stouts and barley wines with many beer styles in between. And, in keeping with the 36-oz per person limit, we serve our beers in 6- and 12-oz glasses as well as a sampler paddle (4 x 3-oz pours) that counts as a 12-oz pour.
 

THE BREWERY
Midnight Sun’s brewery runs in production mode about 5-7 days a week and is closed to the public except for brewery tours every Thursday at 6 PM.

THE GEAR SHOP
In May 2015, we added a full-fledged merchandise shop to our business. It is stocked and loaded. Come check out our cool gear and take away a little bit of Midnight Sun to wear, to drink from, to relish. Once you are here, you are one of us. Thanks for supporting MSBC!
