Firetap Alehouse Restaurant Review

: Firetap’s tables are accented with tiny decorative splashes of color, but they’re swallowed up by the gray “beigeness" of the high-ceilinged, wide-open room. The primary reason to visit this South Anchorage establishment, though, is to sample the beer selection. In fact, the vast menu seems to be built around the beers, rather than the other way around. The Fire Deck oven delivers pizzas, calzones, and even chicken wings. Start with hunger-quenching Macho Nachos, a minor mountain of blue corn chips, cheese, beans and jalapeños, with (optional) pulled pork on one half, and chorizo on the other half, plus guacamole and sour cream. Our choice among house-made brews is a chilled signature “oak aged” Red Hot Momma. There's also a small selection of wines and a full bar where bartenders mix cleverly named Alaskan specialty drinks. Service tends to be slow, even without a crowd.
