THE BREWERY

established in 1996, All brews are created and brewed on premise.

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 to the Odom Corporation for distribution throughout Alaska and Washington.

Head 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.

THE WALL OF WOOD

Virgin Oak infuses notes of vanilla and coconut on the palate.

In partnership with Barrel Builders, California’s oldest continually operating barrel cooperage, we have developed an impressive “Wall of Wood” in a chilled vault beneath the floor of the Brewhouse. The brewers keep this cooperage “like a man keeps his favorite mistress.” Among this wall-and-a-half of casks are at least fifty barrels of special release beers, conditioning in various types of oak that have been selected for the nuances each may impart. Virgin Oak infuses notes of vanilla and coconut on the palate. Those formerly used for Chardonnay or Jim Beam will pass on the distinctive characteristics of their “mother tongue” while conditioning. Hungarian, Ukrainian, and French oaks have their own distinctive profiles to add.
