What can I say? This place is epic. Itís an old school place, big fireplaces. The aroma of this place is so amazing, wood and burning meats. The food is simply the best in any brewpub Iíve been to. Good service. Very busy. Seems like the place to go in ANC. The seafood chowder is just amazing. Get it. The beer, well it is also damn good. Probably 25 beers on tap. Not to be missed. The vibe is a cool 1950s formal dining place with killer beer.

I was here on Thursday, December 18, 2014. Hereís my take. Itís exceptionally clean with a superb service. Staff is clean and organized. I had a flight of two barleywines and an eisbock. My only qualms are the fact that I had beers in wine glasses. Uh...letís keep beer as beer and not try to cater to those wine sit-down-to-pees. Iíll come back to educate the staff on proper beer vessels if I go back which I think I would ícause the beer was good.

The marlin was to die for, my wifeís flat iron with barley wine sauce was killer, My daughters pizza was awsome. The oak aged barley wines worth the trip alone!

Massive touristy restaurant with open kitchen and hundreds of seats. Split into bar and restaurant areas. Came on a crowded weekend night when there would have been a long wait for a table, but the large bar area had quite a few empty tables. Service was slow but friendly. Food was overpriced but well-made, I actually was impressed with the seafood. Beers were alright, unimpressive but drinkable.

Big bustling restaurant. Thereís a restaurant side, for which you apparently will almost always need a reservation, and the pub side. The latter had fairly high turnover so even though it was busy, people were getting tables. Itís big. The menu is pubby, and seemed overpriced - most of Alaskan prices were normal to me (being from Vancouver) but this place was higher than the norm. The beers were a little underwhelming, since my only prior experience with this brewery was its excellent BW, so I guess I was a bit disappointed on the whole.

Sitting at the bar at Glacier Brewhouse with a view towards the actual brew house behind large glass windows, isnít the worst thing one can do in Anchorage. The place is very popular, many bringing their families out for lunch or dinner, so it may not be too easy to find a spot in the bar. But I did. They only serve their own beer, naturally, which meant 8 draught beers and one cask. The beers ranged from decent (Amber and Blonde) to pretty good (Imperial Blonde and Makerís Mark Stout) and the food (herb crusted halibut) was delicious. They also do flights of beer, which is a great thing for us beer tourists. Visited: 2014-07-28.

Great brewpub in downtown Anchorage. Got a beer at the bar and ate in the restaurant. Bartender seemed knowledgable and hooked me up with a sample before ordering. The beers were very good. I enjoyed the DIPA and the barley wine. Food was excellent as well - anything from barfood to steaks and crab legs. The place was slammed when we were there. Would definitely recommend for your trip to Anchorage. Also make sure to go to the Mooseís Tooth.

We stopped in here for lunch and a few beers before the Barleywine festival. We were all blown away by the BA sampler we had, Imperial Stout, Eisbock and Barleywines. Nice big restaurant. Lots of seating and a nice sized bar, view of the tanks. Big fireplace in the middle of the restaurant. Service was fast and friendly, but didnít have any beer knowledge. Food was good.

Oddly set-up brewpub, nice spacious dinning room with a decent size bar. Selection was above average with some seasonal beers sprinkled in with the regulars. Service was slow and not as engaged as one would like, but did know the beers very well. They hold several special events, Iíll be back for one of them.
