Haines Brewing Blog

The new brewery location on Main Street is glowing! Hours are noon-7pm, with room to move, atmosphere, and of course plenty of tasty brews. Expanded Ale and Black Fang are the latest brews in the tanks. Thanks to Tom Morphet for this great photo!
Looks like the view will be great from every direction. Presently our tasting room has a capacity for about 12, whereas the new brewery will have a tasting room capacity for 49 folks! PLUS, the outdoor beer garden will have room for even more... all opening September 2015.
Beer just goes with everything -- let your palate pay attention to which food goes with which beer. Haines Brewing Company's Bigger Hammer Barleywine is paired up with Alaskan Fry Bread.
Now on tap - Rye seasonals! Rye Pale Ale (5.4% ABV, 35 IBUs) and Ryepinski Porter (5.2% ABV, 35 IBUs)
