Kenai River Brewing was the first micro brewery in Soldotna, but don’t let that worry you for a minute, they also have about the best beer we have ever tasted in our lives!  This is a truly first class micro brewery, in every way, offering a wide selection from the most classic German pils to the hoppiest or darkest brews you can imagine.

Free samples daily, and a variety of methods to take this beer home and keep it fresh including mini growlers, growlers, party pigs, and kegs.

Look for Kenai River Brewing brews at many restaurants on the Kenai Peninsula and around the state.


St. Elias Brewpub & Pizza–Soldotna:  Finally, someone has accepted the fact that beer is always better, and consumed in greater quantities, when pizza (good pizza) is present.  While it’s pricier than we’d like, this is good pizza and the selection of beers crafted on premise are pleasing as well.
