Girdwood Brewing Company

Local Brews & Epic Views

About Us: Girdwood Brewing Company was founded by twin brothers, brew engineers Rory and Brett Marenco, social drinking advocate Josh Hegna, and chief tasting officers Amy Shimek and Karl Mclaughlin. The Marenco twins have been brewing beer for 12 years. They started brewing beer when they were college students studying mechanical engineering in Salt Lake City. What started out as a hobby quickly became a passion. They tend to have a culinary influence in their recipes, artistically tweaking the standard styles to add unique flavors and aromas. They are constantly looking to brew a fresh, original craft beer.

Location: Located at 2700 Alyeska Highway, across the street from Donner. We are right off of the bike trail, next to a shuttle stop, and within walking distance from anywhere in Girdwood.

Taproom and Beer Garden: Our 3,040 square foot brewery and taproom has panoramic views of the surrounding Chugach mountains. Whether you are surfing the bore tide, riding Alaskan powder, pedaling the mountain bike trails, boating a nearby river, or landing a trophy fish, you can cozy up to a beer in our timber framed taproom. There is an awesome beer garden with a fire pit, for those who prefer enjoy their beers in a more natural setting.

Beer: We have four core beers and a series of rotating taps. Additionally, we offer up root beer and kombucha for those looking for an alcohol free beverage. Tasters and 12 ounce pours are available to drink in the taproom. In addition to filling growlers to go, we also have 25 ounce cans (for sale in the taproom only). Private tours and tastings are available.

Food: To complete the experience, we have local Food Trucks on-site every day throughout the summer months, and on weekends in the winter months.
