On the Rocks Bar & Grill, a traditional sports bar, recently added a second location in Long Beach, California. When it came time for them to choose a beer system installation company, they knew exactly who to call: Glacier Design Systems.
Carbon dioxide is part of our atmosphere. We breathe it every day. It’s a harmless gas to humans until it reaches certain levels. If not properly monitored, an increase in CO2 can lead to unconsciousness, asphyxiation or death.
When you manage a restaurant that is known for its beer, having a durable and reliable beer system is essential. Dustin Seavey, the general manager of Surly Goat Encino, can attest to that.
When you own a vibrant gastropub that’s known for its craft beers and delicious food, it’s important to have a beer system that matches its style. Just ask Public School 818 owner, John Sola. Public School 818 is an eatery that delivers quality beer and food.
HQ Gastropub was created with the intent to mix high-quality cuisine with a tavern-like feel. In order to foster that authentic look, HQ Gastropub owner, Mark Matters, knew they would need a beer system to match. That’s when Glacier stepped in.
When the owners of Regents Pizzeria in La Jolla, CA wanted to build the best craft beer bar possible, they turned to Glacier Design Systems. “We told the folks at Glacier to build us your ultimate system,” says Bill Vivian, co-owner. “And they did. We’ve been very pleased with the response from our guests.”
Barrel Republic, the ultimate destination for craft beer enthusiasts, has two locations: one in Pacific Beach and another newer one in Oceanside.

When you have a combination sports bar and burger joint, the natural next step is a fantastic selection of beers. But in order to fill the bar with the best IPAs, Ambers, Pale Ales, Stouts, Porters and Ciders, one must decide how to accommodate a high number of taps in a limited space, often in difficult places. That’s where Glacier comes in.
Glacier recently had the pleasure of working with Karl Strauss’ Carlsbad location. Fred Glick and Marina Croce of Karl Strauss approached us with a great opportunity. They were remodeling the brewery—known for its onsite microbrewery, West Coast Pub Fare, and staff of craft beer enthusiasts—and needed a distinct tower design that would be unique to Karl Strauss.
For your next fête, try these crispy, simple apps (just bread plus two ingredients! It really doesn’t get any easier.) with beers to match. The base for your DIY crostini? Slice a baguette into 1/4-inch pieces, brush with olive oil and bake 10 to 15 minutes at 350 degrees F, turning once.
“Wine not?” Glacier Design Systems recently had the fortune of being able to say that to BXCR Wine Bar in the Anaheim Packing District when they approached us with their problem: They had no one willing to create a wine tap system with their specifications.
