Alaska has a booming microbrewery scene, but it’s hard to tour (and taste) your way through a bunch of breweries without some insider info. Big Swig Tours will take you on behind-the-scenes tours of breweries and set more than a few beers in front of your face. And they do all the driving. Of course, what’s a tasting without some pairing? Opt for the bike and brew tour, and you’ll start the day with a bike ride on Anchorage’s Tony Knowles Coastal Trail before your afternoon brewery jaunt. Want even more breweries and sights? Big Swig’s Hops on the Rail starts with a three-hour Alaska Railroad trip to Talkeetna. You’ll amble slowly back down to Anchorage via breweries in the comfort of the Big Swig van.
