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.
