First off, I have to rave about the beer. I've never had a better pilsner and the whiskey barrel aged Beam Stout was just ecstasy in a glass. I was even more surprised to see a place that has between 8 and 10 house beers on tap at a time. The day I came in the menu listed 9, but the cask conditioned had managed to empty itself. Most brewpubs I've seen only manage 5 beers at a time. The decor is modern -- shiny metal combined with wood. Seems like it was going for a mesh of ultra modern and rustic. Comes across attractively, but does make the place seem a little less accessible and less intimate. The food is pricey with the cheapest thing on the menu being the 10-inch gourmet pizzas for $9.95. Even the salads are over $11. The lunch menu is cheaper, with some sandwiches "only" costing about $8, but it's still pricey. I suggest only going for the beer (but you have to go for the beer) or going for a light meal and split an entree, but you have to try the beer if you're ever in Anchorage. One note, some of their more popular offerings are available in some of the better beer bars in Anchorage like Humpy's.

Cool spot in downtown Anchorage. Went on a Sunday and it was packed to the max. Didn't check out the bar area, grabbed some seats in the eating area so I could grab some food as well. A somewhat limited overall selection of beer to choose from, around 6 or so beers total and I stuck with the IPA and Oatmeal Stout, the 2 beers that were of interest. Both were good. Service was fair at best, but it was ridiculously busy so it wasn't intentional, server just might not have been as well rehearsed as he could have been. Food was good but super pricey. Overall, glad I stopped there and would head back if I every find myself back in Anchorage.

One of our favorite places in Anchorage. Fine food and beer.
If you are looking for gourmet food and some really good brews then you have to stop by Glacier Brewhouse. Their food is fantastic! They feature a wood fired grill where they cook all things from whole chickens on a rotisserie to fresh Alaskan salmon. You will not be disappointed with anything on the menu. The beer is always a safe bet as well. They have a full lineup as well as a seasonal and a rotating cask beer. Their sampler is an amazing deal! Five tasters for around $5!
Please try this place. You will love it!

First stop in Anchorage was at the Glacier brewhouse. I mean, that's just where the bus let us off right? Walked in just after it opened, hoping to catch a little World Cup action. It is a massive space, but low ceilinged, with a view of the brewhouse. The bar is long. Didn't really like the overall layout of the place, I'd prefer higher ceilings for such an open space, it's actually kind've monotonous.
Did like that you can see into the brewhouse and I did very much like the open kitchen. Always nice to see. They were in there prepping up a storm.
We had some nice beers on tap, their IPA on draft and cask that was pretty good, a damn fine Beam Brown ale, and their Porter. Came back another time, had some other stuff that was pretty good too.
Had food both times and both times it was pretty good but not very memorable, and a little bit pricey. But they jam on weeknights so I guess they can charge whatever they want. Overall, a nice place and a cool experience.
