Just off the Bayfront Hwy between Presque Isle and the Bicentennial Tower lies the city of Erie’s first craft distillery since prohibition.
Newly opened in 2019, the Erie area’s favorite distillery boasts award-winning small-batch vodka, rums, gin and aged-whiskeys. Here, customers are welcome to taste our spirits before they buy. And if you’re lucky enough to visit when one of the owners is around, you may be offered a tour as well. Or you can contact the distillery in advance to schedule one.
Altered State Distillery is open every evening TUE-FRI beginning at 3 pm and Saturdays at noon. We host the area’s best local and regional bands every Friday and Saturday night from 7-10.
While there is no formal lunch or dinner menu, our small food-pairing menu is available from open to close, and in the evening hours we are often host to some of the city’s favorite local food trucks.
Cocktails not your thing? We proudly serve local craft beers, sours, ciders and wines.
