St. Elias Brewing Company, named after the 18,000 foot peak on the Alaska-Candian border, pops up on the left side of the road as you roll into Soldotna. JJ, Brian and I had some lunch in the restaurant before talking with head brewer Zach Henry in the red brick and stainless steel brewery. Zach was hard at work in the warm and humid part of the building, saying one of the reasons he hasn’t pursued offsite distribution is that he can barely keep up production out of the brewpub right now, particularly because summer just started. St. Elias had 11 beers on tap to offer, and I really enjoyed finding some unique places to take photos. This is definitely a great place to get food and a pint on the Kenai.
