Phone number: 907-318-2470

Monday - Saturday: 12PM - 6PM
Sunday 12PM - 4PM

What do they offer:

Sweetgale Meadworks and Cider House

Address: 3657 Main Street, Homer AK
Phone Number: 907-690-1786

Hours: Tuesday-Sunday 2PM – 7PM

What do they offer?
Sweetgale crafts small-batch meads and cider with one goal: to showcase the aromas and flavors of Alaska's fruit, berries, and honey, using nothing but locally produced inputs. In February of 2022, their Alpine Blueberry mead won Best of Show out of 92 entries at the Texas Mead Cup.

Their cider contains nothing but fresh local apples and their meads are nothing but local honey, fruit, and water. Natural wines like theirs should be opened with care, as they may over time develop significant natural effervescence.

Sweeter meads and ciders are available by the glass in their tasting room and can be bottled upon request.

The Homer Brewing Company is another popular option for drinks if you are more interested in what a traditional brewhouse offers. Their flagship beers are worth a taste if you are in the neighborhood.

Not into beer, but still want to explore the brewery? Not to worry! You can walk through the company premises on a sort of self-guided tour! Additionally, if you just want a non-alcoholic beverage, you can grab a bottle of Alaska Chai Tea to quench your thirst.

What do they offer?
The Salty Dawg is an Alaskan favorite since 1957. It's quaint wilderness cabin is iconic as the place in Homer for a cold drink—for both locals and tourists alike.

The building was one of the first cabins built in Homer in 1897, soon after Homer became a town. It served as the first post office, a railroad station, a grocery store and a coal mining office for 20 years. It was moved to its current location after the 1964 earthquake and the distinctive lighthouse tower was added to cover an unsightly storage tank, creating one of Homer's most recognizable landmarks.

If you've never heard of a drink called the Duck Fart, or had a drink under a canopy of thousands of $1 bills, you probably haven't been to the Salty Dawg Saloon. The Duck Fart was featured on an episode of the Discovery Channel's Deadliest Catch. It's a layered shot with Bailey's, Kahlua, and Crown Royal whiskey.
