ALTER BREWING COMPANY IS A BAND OF DIVERSE AND PASSIONATE BEER LOVERS. WE ARE DEVOTED TO INNOVATING BEYOND THE CONFINES OF TRADITIONAL STYLES IN OUR UNCOMPROMISING QUEST TO PRODUCE BEER OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY.
The year was 2013
In the burgeoning suburb of Downers Grove, IL a dream was given life. Three men with a passion for beer came together and began laying the foundations for a new brewery. Over the course of two years they labored with research and experimentation, seeking out the best equipment, suppliers and people to begin realizing their vision.
Then in 2015
Building upon a passionate love for the beer industry and its people, as well as formal brewing education at the Siebel Institute, BJCP Certification, Cicerone CBS and on the job training at breweries across the country, Alter Brewing Company was born.
Alter Brewing has become a friendly hub where novices and experts alike can gather together in their appreciation for, and enjoyment of, the craft of brewing. We endeavor to become a force for change and innovation both in our local community and also the beer world at large, and continue to look forward to what the future brings!
We source our raw materials and supplies from all over the world. Whether it is spicy Belgian yeast from across the Atlantic, or citrusy and piney hops from the Pacific Northwest, we get just the right ingredients to make beer that we hope everyone will enjoy right along with us.
Our Brew House was manufactured right here in the Heartland! The shiny tanks and process piping you see in our brewery were manufactured by W.M. Sprinkman Corporation with virgin U.S. Stainless Steel in Franksville Wisconsin, located just an hour and a half from our home. Serious process engineering at play here!
OUR BEER IS A CLARION CALL TO THE COMMUNITY TO ALTER THEIR PRECONCEPTIONS NOT ONLY OF WHAT BEER IS, BUT ALSO OF WHAT BEER CAN BE.
FINALLY, ALTER IS A PROMISE TO LEVERAGE OUR PASSION AND DEDICATION INTO SERVING OUR PATRONS AND COMMUNITY WITH INTEGRITY AND RESPECT.
We at Alter Brewing welcome all people interested in unique craft beers and its vibrant culture to come and share the experience with others who share your passion for delicious beer, amazing company, music and of course… fun.
It is our hope that Alter Brewing is and will be a place and culture that the community can share and enjoy for years to come. Somewhere people can feel like they belong, maybe even where everyone knows your name, feeling welcome and accepted.
Thanks for reading! We hope to see you in our tap room soon and look forward to earning your business and becoming friends along the way.
