OUR STORY

Erik Slater and Hillary Bean have occupied various roles in the food and beverage industry for more than a combined 40 years.  It is their passion and expertise that has put Seward Brewing Company on the map. 

 

A chef in Alaska since 1996, Erik worked his way across the state until he found a home in Seward in 2000. In 2004, Erik began work as Executive Chef at the Resurrection Roadhouse and Fox Island Wilderness Lodge, transforming these sites into popular dining destinations for tourists and locals alike.  Erik continually collaborates with Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute to create innovative dishes with local seafood and serves on the Chefs Congress among other notable chefs from around the country. 

 

Hillary moved to Seward in 1996, where she worked

and then managed the bar at Ray's Waterfront, one of

Seward's busiest harbor spots. Her quick wit and

dedication to customer service made her a favorite

bartender among locals and visitors from around the

world.  Hillary is the area's TAP (Training for Alcohol

Professionals) Instructor, drawing on her years of

experience to provide guidance to other Sewardites

working in the industry. 

 

In 2014, Erik and Hillary bought the Seward Brewing

Company with the goal to provide Seward with

inventive, local craft beer, innovative pub food and

impeccable service.  Erik and Hillary, with their daughter

Rowan, are firmly rooted in the community of Seward and the state of Alaska.
