The Glacier BrewHouse, established in 1996 by Chris Anderson and Bob Acree, is an upscale brewpub located in the heart of downtown Anchorage, Alaska. The brewery is a 15bbl single infusion mash system and constantly ranks in the top ten (out of about 1,200) in the United States for brewpub beer production. The brewery specializes in English and American West Coast style beers along with an elaborate oak aging program. In 2012, the brewery produced 4500 barrels of draft only – with half being served on premise and half sold for distribution throughout Alaska and Washington.
HEAD BREWER Brewer Drew Weber has been with the BrewHouse since 2001. Drew left from Colorado on a fishing vacation in Alaska in 2001 and found himself stranded in Anchorage after 9/11. This extra time in the north changed his life. He stayed! He got a busser job at Glacier BrewHouse and proceeded to work his way into the brewery – eventually graduating from the Siebel Institute.
