Baranof Island Brewing


While it may have started out as a small local operation, Baranof Island Brewing Company gained traction so rapidly that the Sitka-based brewery had no choice but to expand their operations. There's a lot of regional love in their brews, which feature native ingredients specific to the area: naturally occurring glacial water and Sitka spruce needles, the latter of which are lovingly hand-picked by helpful neighborhood folk. Whether you need to replenish your growler or you're looking to find a new favorite by sampling some drafts, it's worth a visit to their cozy, rustic-chic tap room.
