Downers Grove, IL – Alter Brewing Company has announced that beginning August 6th they will begin distribution with Lakeshore Beverage to substantially increase their Chicagoland and suburban presence. This partnership will nearly double Alter’s existing geographic footprint, adding thousands of new on and off-premise accounts to the network – primarily in Chicago.

“When we met with David, Mark, and Peter, we were excited from the get-go,” said Austin Sawyer, Director of Craft and Import Brands for Lakeshore Beverage. “Alter is a fast-growing local brewery and we’re excited to partner with them and continue to grow their brand here in the entire Chicagoland area. They’re great people and are producing some really fantastic beers.”

When asked about the new partnership, Alter co-owner David Yob said, “After a patient search to find the right partner to introduce Alter Brewing beers to the city of Chicago and areas around, we are excited to expand our distribution with Lakeshore Beverage. Two and a half years after opening our tasting room in Downers Grove we are excited to share our beers with so many great new accounts and craft beer consumers.”

Alter is currently being distributed in the western suburbs by Schamberger Brothers, Inc., headquartered in Villa Park, and has been self-distributing in the city. Alter’s flagships Alterior Motive IPA, Center Line golden ale, and Hopular Kid extra pale ale will be among the first beers featured by Lakeshore as they begin distribution.
