Livermore, CA – The Livermore Valley Chamber of Commerce welcomed Altamont Beer Works to its membership roster this month, cutting the ribbon on the brewery’s new, expanded tap room on Friday.

Established in 2012, Altamont Beer Works is touted as Livermore’s first brewery since prohibition.  The owner, Steve Sartori, comes from a family of entrepreneurs, each of his parents involved in generations of family-owned businesses.

“Steve Sartori and Altamont Beer Works has contributed much to the community and is a respected business and beloved local brand.  Steve is the next generation of business leaders in the Livermore Valley, and we are thrilled to welcome him to the Chamber and to support him in continued success for his business,” said Dawn Argula, Chamber CEO.

Altamont Beer Works popularity has grown over the years and is now poured at events and pubs throughout Northern California.  Located at 2402 Research Drive in Livermore in a single level commercial space in a strip of leased spaces, this is where Sartori currently produces 18 micro-brews.  It also includes a small tap room, often serving its brews to a standing room only crowd.

Open to the public on December 14, the new space is local, industrial design and features re-purposed wood and metal for bar-top tables and chairs and community table settings.  Its artwork includes graphics from a variety of its beer labels and blades from a giant decommissioned windmill.  The use of metal is prevalent including in the new Altamont Beer Works blue-tooth controlled sign lit from behind.  The work was done by a local metal shop.
