Altered Genius To Open In Ambridge For First Time Through To-Go Sales May 7th

Congratulations to Altered Genius Brewing who opens their doors for the first time. Not officially a grand opening, but the brewery will be offering to-go beer purchases starting Thursday, May 7th in Ambridge, PA.

Growlers will be sold via online purchasing and beer pick up times will be held during the following times throughout the week (subject to change based on need):

• Thursday & Friday: 4:00 – 9:00
• Saturday: 12:00 – 8:00
• Sunday: 12:00 – 6:00

Located just outside of Pittsburgh the brewery is located at 411 Merchant Street, which is the heart of the cities’ Downtown Commercial District. We recently visited the brewery to learn what future patrons can expect once they open completely.

What was once a former hot dog shop and barber school Altered Genius will house a 10 barrel brew system with a 30 feet bar for plenty of consumers to enjoy. Joining the taproom will also be an onsite kitchen where Altered Genius will pair handcrafted food with the beer on the 12 tap system.

Food and beer will not be the only consumption available. Pennsylvania wine and spirits will also be available once they open fully. An outdoor beer garden is being constructed to round out the dining and drinking experience.

As the story goes, the two brewers behind the brewery (Mike and Donnie) originally worked together as teachers in alternative education (hence the name….Altered Genius). Roughly 10 years ago they began exploring the world of homebrewing together. As was shared with us they felt right at home in this world, and thus the idea of Altered Genius was born. A decade later that dream soon becomes a reality.

As the brewery shares, they plan to be an “environment in which you can enjoy that beer with family and friends” [and pups too!]. They intend to make beers that taste like beer. And we can attest to that. During our visit, they were kind enough to share brews they had already been working on.

While you obviously can’t grab a drink and bite inside the brewery now, make sure to follow them on Facebook and Instagram to stay up to date on the to-go sales.
