Alter Brewing is a nice brewery located in a semi-industrial area of Downers Grove.  The taproom is pretty open, and the brewery equipment is very visible from the taproom.  The taproom seating is not crowded, and board games are available for groups or for families.  Outdoor seating is also available.  I had a flight of three taster beers (5 oz each) and individually priced.  They also have beers in cans, growlers, and kegs to go.  No food is served at the brewery, but I understand food trucks visit the place.  Parking could be tight on busy days, but I did not have an issue on a weekday.  Alter Brewing is well worth the visit for tasting craft beers.

Good beers. Kinda off the beaten path. Pre COVID they offered yoga and brews once a month on saturdays. Fun spot to grab drinks with friends.

Enjoyed our beer, nice selection of different styles, very friendly and helpful staff. The tap room is a nice wide open space, high ceiling, great place. They don’t have outdoor seating but they can open garage doors to open to the outside and have bar top like seating. Wednesday is a great day to visit they had $8 Crowlers. Would visit again when in the area.
