Alaska | Saturday in Anchorage.

Back in Alaska, it's Saturday August 26 ... and the first day of our trip that we stayed in one place! Well, in one town any way. We covered a good bit of ground!

First on foot - Lydia and I enjoyed a nice early morning walk mostly along the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail. Great waterfront views ... and - finally! - a moose!!

We cleaned up, had time for a little knitting

and then headed to the Anchorage Market and Festival for lunch. There was music
 and all kinds of great food and crafts. I had a salmon quesadilla and it was delicious.

That afternoon, we took the Big Swig Tour and visited three local breweries, with tastings. Prior to this trip, I liked beer "ok" - it would've never been my first choice of beverage. But now, I'm a real fan. Special favorites include IPA (the more bitter the better), Saison and Porter.
Ron & Karen at Midnight Sun (people shown for scale - that's a huge stack of cans!)
we drank a lot of beer!
Steve & Ron at Cynosure Brewing ... last stop!
Sadly, none of the beers we sampled that day make their way to Georgia, but with help from my sister and brother-in-law, I'm exploring our local offerings and finding favorites here.

That evening, we enjoyed a very fun dinner out ... but I have no photos to share. Still, I think you can see - it was a great day!

Next week, we're headed out again on the train to see more glaciers. until then ...

Happy Friday, Happy December, Happy End of NaBloPoMo (but I do intend to be back tomorrow with the second installment of Cheers to Bonny)!!

Love it! (I'm an IPA fan, too. The hoppier the better . . . ) What a fun day in Anchorage, Mary. XO

I liked the train rides and beautiful scenery, but this also looks like a fun day (and a lot of beer)! I do enjoy time travel to Alaska (and can't wait to try two more cocktails)!

I don't love IPAs but I love me a Porter or Stout. The whole craft beer thing has exploded and I bet you have some great options in Georgia.

I like IPAs too, especially hoppy ones. It looks like you had a lot of fun in Anchorage!

I too love those hoppy beers! They are just such a treat for the palate and the nose! It does look like you had great fun in Anchorage!

Your trip sounds really fun and the food and drink excellent. I always loved our local micro-brewery selections and the bitter, darker beers were my fave, too!

What a great day! I love to go Brewery hopping also but Porter, Stout and lager for me. Everyone looks so happy!

Just as I love dryer wines, I like darker, more bitter beers. Looks and sounds like it was a fabulous day!

Looks like a beer lover's heaven. A different aspect of Alaska, for sure.

The great beer was definitely one of the highlights of the trip.

Oh, how wonderful!! I, too, am an "IPA girl"! It's so wonderful with local & craft breweries everywhere now. Cute moose!
