Establishment: Ellicottville Brewing Company, Ellicottville, NY

This place became a beacon of hope for me when I returned to the east coast after 6 years in Alaska. Alaska is a Micro-brew haven; you can get all the great micros from the great northwest there, not to mention their own homegrown award winning micros from the Alaskan brewing company, Midnight Sun Brewing, Glacier Brewing, etc... Then I came back east and bupkus! Nothing! Nada! Just about everyone here in rural western NY and north Central PA drinks Bud, Coors or some other watered down macro brew. Then I heard about this place and presto! Back into the groove. They have some really great beer at this place. The atmosphere is super and the food is good too, but a little over priced. There's no doubt that the owners of the EBC are simply trying to "make hay while the sun shines" as I've hear so often in this area. Meaning, the tourist season is short and they need to make as much money as they can, as fast as they can. But don't get me wrong, the quality of the food and beer does not suffer. They have a passion for brewing and it shows. I love seeing all the brewing equipment out in the open, as though it were a part of the overall atmosphere because, well, it is really. The smell of freshly brewed beer is the best. The aroma of hops and malted barely...I love being there when they're actively brewing a batch of beer. Best Micro Brewery in the southern tier area without a doubt.

Establishment: Homer Brewing Company, Homer, AK

If you make a trip to Homer, be sure to visit the Homer Brewing Company. If you have trouble finding the place, just ask a local..seriously, they'll be happy to point you in the right direction. It's located off of the main road and there aren't really any signs to point you in the right direction. The Red Knot Ale is probably their most popular selection (at least it was when we visited Homer this summer), but their China Poot Porter is great too, as well as the Broken Birch Bitter (my personal favorite). Go right to the brewery and they pour you a growler (1 gallon) of fresh beer right off keg. Can't get any fresher than that! You have to pay a 5 dollar deposit on the growler, but get it back when you return, which you surly will after trying the beer!

Establishment: Humpy's Great Alaskan Ale House, Anchorage, AK

I turned 21 in this place back on 1/1/1996. It has held a special place in my heart ever since. I moved out of AK in '99, but my wife and I return each year and we always spend an afternoon in Humpy's enjoying some great beer and good food. Their Halibut Tacos are the best! BTW, what happened to Rico Trusty? That guy was going places. I heard he was involved in a car accident which kept him from playing music after recovering...too bad, he was the best. I really thought I'd be buying that guy's CD from EMG someday. At any Rate, if you only eat at one place while visiting Anchorage, eat at Humpy's. Beer Selection, staff and food are great.
