This is Alter Brewing

What makes getting together memorable? The people. It’s why we founded Alter Brewing: to make beer that brings everyone together.

We Make Kick-Ass Beer

We love making beer that people love. It’s clean. It’s creative. It’s drinkable. It’s the beer for whatever you’re doing.

We Build Unique Experiences

Whether you’re looking for a night out with friends, a unique wedding, or a place to meet new people, our venues are where memories are made.

We Bring People Together

Surround yourself with the people you love. Raise a glass of interesting and creative beer. Craft your community.

Beer You’ll Love From People Who Love Beer

Alter Beer was founded by people from a lot of different backgrounds. We didn’t start out in beer… except for loving it. So when we founded Alter, we decided to make the beer we’d love.

Love is at the heart of what we do. We love having people come to our house. We love being the beer in your backyard or at the beach. We love making beer that brings people together.

We don’t consider ourselves a beer company. We’re a beer for company. Let’s raise a glass.
