Beer-to-go at Anchorage International Airport

In November, 2012, a store called the Liquor Library opened at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas, offering wine, beer, liquor, mixers and other to-go party items in the Terminal 1 baggage claim area.

The to-go trend continues with the opening of a branch of the Silver Gulch brewery at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ANC).

Silver Gulch, a brewery and retail outlet near Fairbanks, Alaska, opened its airport branch on December 1st and sells growlers and six packs of beer, including Epicenter (named after the 1964 earthquake), Cheechako (a term used to describe a newcomer to Alaska) and 40 Below.
