Tuesday nights at Altered State Distillery 

Altered State is pet-friendly every day, but Tuesday evenings are specially set aside for pets in the patio or tasting room. On Tuesdays, mini ice cream cones and gourmet dog biscuits from Bingo's Barkery available, so you can treat your best friend while you relax and enjoy one of our craft cocktails and a Smith's hot dog or Kielbasa from Dobbins Dogs.
