“We work hard. We play hard. And we know how to have a good time!” That’s the motto for the hard-working crew that makes Skagway Brewing Company what they are. Looking for a fun, yet challenging job in a fast-paced, high-volume environment? Do you enjoy hand-crafted ales and great pub food?! Then the Skagway Brewing Company may be the right fit for you!

Our business is heavily influenced by seasonal tourism, which is directly linked to Skagway being a major port calling for cruise ships.  Late April-October our tiny boardwalk town is overflowing with tourists. Our crew is comprised of year-round locals, but we rely heavily on our “seasonal individuals” -- those drawn to the allure of Skagway, its history, and of course, good beer! 

The Skagway Brewing Company features an on-site microbrewery and restaurant, retail store and seating for up to 400. We also take pride in our sustainability efforts - we have a year-round indoor garden where we grow all of our own leafy greens & culinary herbs.  The harvest yield of these greens and herbs are boosted by the carbon dioxide released from the brewing process; we capture it in pipes and send it on over to the garden.  Taking things one step further, we use all of our spent vegetable oil to create biodiesel which is then used to heat the building as well as fuel the brewing process. Currently, the biodiesel program is on pause.
