Taproom Details

We only have a few rules: have fun. Be respectful. Enjoy the people around you. We’re brewing beers that bring people together. We can’t wait to see you at our place.

Draft Sizes: Our beers are available as tasters or full pours. We also have 32oz. crowlers and 67oz. growlers available for to-go only. Higher % ABV beers are limited to 12oz. pours. Barrel Aged beers are served in 10oz. pours and are not available in growlers (sorry, Charlie). The remainder are served in 16oz. pours.

Food: We have some assorted snacks for you to munch on including gourmet breadsticks, beef sticks, and various pretzels and peanuts. However, feel free to bring your own little feast, carry out, or even have some food delivered. We have some menus behind the bar for local restaurants, so come up and ask for one if you’re hungry!

Parking Info: Feel free to park both in front of and behind the building, but please do not park in front of garage doors. Additionally, please do not park along the side of the building, as passing cars and food trucks need that space. Thank you!

Draft List

Try something new or your old favorite. Or both!

Tap lists updated weekly.

Upcoming Events & Fun

Alter Brewing Barrel Room Event Space

250 Cocktail • 100-120 Seated

The Barrel Room

It’s where big parties feel cozy and comfortable. It’s where fancy parties are fun. With a variety of seating conditions, a private bar and dedicated bartender, a 4-tap draft menu, and your own bags set, it’s an ideal spot for up to 250 people to have a night they won’t forget.

50 Cocktail • 35 Seated

The Loft

Intimate. Unique. Scenic. We won’t want to be too lofty, but the loft is an ideal spot for smaller groups of 50 or fewer. With tableside service, a 70-inch TV, and your own private bathroom (!), our Loft spot makes smaller parties feel like the social event of the season.
