Alter Brewing Company + Kitchen

12 South 1st Street, St. Charles, IL 60174


Great beer. Great friends. Great times. Come their signature location in the First Street Plaza featuring a decadent patio and spectacular selection of brews.

Alter Brewing Co. is one of the many phenomenal businesses located in the First Street Plaza in downtown St. Charles and features craft brews, delicious food and signature views. Enjoy a beer inside or hangout on their patio and enjoy views of the downtown and Fox River.

Their facility includes seating for 160 on the inside and 100+ in our outdoor, riverside patio.

They also have a private dining room adjacent to the brew house to bring together small to medium sized private events in a vibrant sit down or cocktail environment.

While their beer is certainly the front man of this band, the supporting musicians are excellent players! A full-service kitchen, wine, and spirit program allows not just beer lovers but all to enjoy their carefully curated offerings. Whether you come for the beer, food, wine or spirits, they know you’ll stay and come back because of the great times you’ll have.
