On our third day on land, we were staying at a lodge in Denali, just inside the national park. My new vacation friend Kristi and I decided to head across the street to a brewery, except it turns out the brewery was about a 25 minute drive away, basically in the middle of nowhere.
Best decision ever. I am the new biggest fan of 49th State Brewery.
Not only did this brewery make some delicious beverages, they had a really great outdoor space with a very familiar looking bus in it.
Because it is the bus of Into the Wild fame. THAT bus. Maybe the most famous bus in literary history?
Pretty nice surprise, right? Also, surprise: I've never read or seen Into the Wild but now I think I have to or else these beautiful, golden Polaroids will make me feel like a total fraud.
You can learn more about the Into the Wild bus and the brewery on the 49th State Brewery website.
