altered State EVENTS

(Event dates listed below)

We host more live local and regional music than anyone in Erie !!!

Altered State Distillery is a strong supporter of  local and regional musicians, food trucks, breweries, artists, even animal shelters .

We host a happy hour Tuesday through Thursday, open jam sessions every  Thursday and live local and regional music every Friday and Saturday night year round.  Sunday afternoons in the summer months we host a "funky brunch" complete with live music, bloody mary bar, brunch entrees and omelet bar, reserving one Sunday/month for our Arts and Casks Handmade Vendor Fairs .  *Please note: brunch is temporarily on hold. Follow us on facebook for updates.

Food Trucks and Pop-Ups are also a big part of what we do.  We can't call it an "event" without them.  You will often find your favorites parked around back or popping-up inside our production space.  For the most up to date information on Food Trucks, check out the calendar on our dining page. 

Tuesdays with Timber is set to return in 2023 with local music, adoptable pets and yappy hours benefitting local and regional animal shelters and foster programs. (Yes, we are pet friendly!)
