About Us

 

 

 St. Elias is a family owned and operated  full service restaurant and brewpub. We offer a full menu of rustic Neapolitan style pizzas and sandwiches which are cooked to perfection in our stone fired pizza oven. In addition our kitchen serves up huge gourmet salads and house made desserts. We strive to use the freshest ingredients to maintain a high standard of quality.

Our on sight brewhouse is designed to produce the highest quality handcrafted ales, using the freshest grain and hops from all around the world. Our restaurant exclusively offers St. Elias ales on tap, which can’t be purchased at any other location. Our 7 barrel brewhouse produces all of our house ales as well as cream soda and root beer. We also offer a variety of red and white wine on tap, including some Alaskan locally made varieties. In addition, we serve several commercially produced gluten free beers and cider.  Our beer is available in house by the pint and in 36 oz cans and 64 oz growlers to go!  

At St. Elias, our mission is to provide the highest quality dining experience for your enjoyment. We hope to see you soon!

 

Although our establishment is far away from the lofty summit of Mt. St. Elias in the Wrangell mountain range, we believe that Mt. St. Elias contributed greatly to the rich history of Alaska. The St. Elias Mountains were named by explorer Vitus Bering (1681-1741) who was selected in 1725 by Peter I to explore far North East Siberia. The  summit of Mt. St. Elias was the first piece of Alaska mainland to catch Vitus Bering’s eye. That same day happened to be the feast day of the Saint Elias. A feast day is the date a saint or holy event is commemorated, and is often times the date of his or her death. The area where Vitus Bering made landfall was named for Elias. Eventually the mountain too came to be called Mount St. Elias. 

                                 

Mount St. Elias rises 18,008 feet high, in the Wrangell Mountain range on the U.S.-Canadian border between the South West Yukon Territory and South East Alaska; the fourth highest peak of North America.
