Took my wife on an Alaskan cruise this summer, and Skagway was one of our ports of call. Knowing that I'm a beer fan, she scheduled us an excursion to this little brewery on the outskirts of town. The ppl working there were simple awesome. Gave us a short tour (the place isn't that big) and then started handing out samples.
They just happened to be out of the normal 4oz sample glasses, so it was pounders for all. Also, the girl giving the tour and sharing the history of the place was very big on the "No empty glasses" rule. They had 6 beers on tap, 5 of their own plus Alaskan Brew Co's Amber Ale, which I think is a state law that you have to have on tap!
Two of the beers really stood out to me. First they had a spruce pale on tap, something I've never seen in person. Only time I've had spruce beers is when I brew em myself. The other offering that really impressed me was a smoked porter they had. It was pretty heavy for a porter, but the smoke was mellow and pleasing.
They have a restaurant too that cooked up a batch of corn fritters for the tour group to munch on while we sampled beers. Fritters were great, but sadly we didn't have time to check out the actual menu.
The only real sad part about the place is that they are such a small operation so they don't bottle anything, beer is only sold locally. If you happen to be headed north sometime and find yourself in Skagway, you should stop in and grab a pint.
