There aren’t many things that are better than beer & fish, and our wild Alaskan fishermen recognize that! These Alaskan Beer Bits are a fishermen staple up in Alaska! Their easy preparation, crunchy texture, and juicy deliciousness makes these a go-to for boat dinners. If you have a spare beer hanging out somewhere at the back of your fridge, you’ll want to pull it out! We’re about to show you a way to enjoy your beer and fish in a way you probably never thought of before. 

Alaskan Beer Bits

Serves: 2-3

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total: 15 minutes


  • 1 wild-caught Rockfish fillet, cubed
  • 3 cups olive oil
  • 1 box of Krusteaz buttermilk pancake mix
  • 1 bottle of beer of your liking


Begin by pouring all 3 cups of oil into your skillet. Heat over medium high heat.

While your oil heats up, cube your rockfish fillet. 

Dump the contents of the Krusteaz box into a medium bowl. Slowly begin adding your beer and stirring until you get a nice batter (you don’t want your batter to be too thick, but you also don’t want a runny batter!)

Begin coating your rockfish pieces in batter before transferring them to the hot oil. Fry on each side for 3-5 minutes, or until golden brown.

Serve with tartar sauce, cocktail sauce, or whatever your favorite sauce is!
