a great pub. goregous layout, nice and dim lighting, love the fireplace in the middle of the dining room. the bar is awesome with this wave curve shape to it. the food here is some of the most fantastic fare i've had since i've moved to Anchor-town, the seared Ahi is a personal favorite. the staff here are some of the most personable folks you'll come across in the entierity of the food service industry, they know their shit about both the food and the beer, look for Monique, little short haired girl who tends bar, she's awesome. and you've gotta love the brew tanks as the backdrop (behind glass of course). the beer is exceptoinal, and there is always a cask conditioned selection on top of there typical selection. if you want a good brew pub, and are willing to pay a bit more than the tooth's this is it. it is also a must on the downtown pub crawl.

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.
