Beer at its Best!
The City of Palmer’s motto is “Alaska at its Best” and Arkose Brewery is “Beer at its Best!”
Named after nearby Arkose Ridge and Peak, Arkose Brewery is a veteran-owned business co-founded in 2011 by husband-and-wife duo, Stephen and June Gerteisen and is the very first brewery to ever open in Palmer.
Raised in Alaska and Germany, Stephen has over 20 years of brewing experience and is a graduate of the U.C. Davis Master Brewers program in California. He is a certified ASCP Medical Technologist, has served in the United States Air Force, and is a member of the Institute of Brewing & Distilling. Full of passion and expertise, he brings the science and the soul to every barrel.
Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, living in Germany many years, and Alaska resident since 2003, June is the Creative Director at Arkose Brewery and is an accomplished Artist as well as a Cicerone Certified Beer Server. She brings the art and the heart to every glass and to every bottle with her award-winning logo and bottle designs.
