I saw that there were two conflicting reviews for this spot, so I decided to record my own. The bad review almost prevented me from going here while passing through Laramie, but I'm glad it didn't. The Altitude Chophouse and Brewery was the best stop yet after having been on the road for 10 days and eating out every night. The food was well above average, with a gourmet Americana bent (there's an actual chef employed here). The service was extremely fast and attentive. We made reservations and were seated immediately upon arrival ahead of a waiting crowd. The beers were all solid to above average as well. They had about 8 on tap and none was mediocre. The two wheats (American and Bavarian) were to style. The brown ale, seasonal Munich dunkel and APA were solid examples of their genre. The Scottish Ale was the best I've ever had and the porter and stout were well above average. They also had a rotating double wheat seasonal that was well worth trying. Great experience overall. Even the kids said that they wished we were doing more than passing through.

The atmosphere trended towards the feel of a chain restaurant.

The quality was good for both the beer and the food.

The service for our party was excellent.

The beer selection was pretty good. I had flights to cover all nine beers offered at the time. The menu was kind of standard fare for such a place.

The food was good, but at 6:30pm they were already out of one of the specials on the board. Poor planning.

Overall, a good meal and pretty good beer.

Not a bad selection of brews, not much on dark brews but the ones they have are good. The food and service are good, it's a place I'd go back to when in Laramie again.

Laramie is kinda small so choice is limited but this is a solid place. The menu doesn't change much but there is usually something for everyone. house beers are on tap and the service is pleasant.

There is another place that serves their beer called Lovejoy's Bar and Grill a few blocks away.

Beers ranged from ok to good, with their IPA being the stand out. Atmosphere was fun, and staff seemed very knowledgeable about their beer. Was unable to check out other brewery in town but all in all I enjoyed my visit here and was pleasantly surprised as I don't hear much about breweries in southern Wyoming..

My wife and I stopped here on a weekday for a late lunch while passing through this area on a vacation trip. There was only one other table occupied when we sat down, so service that we received was very good.

We ordered a beer sampler and received 9 beers that were 4-5 oz pours served in small Pilsener glasses. Typically we don't enjoy the light-flavored beers, but we drank them so that we could evaluate the overall beer offerings. They were okay, and close to style. (The server said that one of them is their best selling beer, so maybe their typical customer is more of a foodie than a beer lover.) Each of the other beers were also brewed close to style, although none were notable to us.

The food menu was just their lunch offerings, and there were good selections. We enjoyed the dishes that we ordered.

If we're in the area we'd probably come back here again, but it would be more for the food rather than the beer.

I go to school in Laramie and Altitudes is the place to go for an awesome dinner and a wide variety of delicious microbrew. Walking in you may notice the stark walls and high ceiling but the food and drinks well make up for the appearance. The bar has big tree stumps for seats and a couple flat screens to watch the game on. In my opinion, and all by buddies, the food is great. You can get everything from pizza and burgers to calamari and artichoke crab dip. All the beer served is made in house and changed and mixed up depending on the season. The High Plains Ale (also served at Love Joy's) is a standard year round and absolutely the best around. A great part about Altitudes is that you can get any beer on tap to-go in a growler. Needless to say, every chance I get I have to refill my High Plains. I've heard that they will sell you grains and/or hops in case you get the itch to brew, but I haven't checked that out yet. If you're driving through Wyoming (lower east side) and need to stop, you should definitely check it out.

On a trip from Little Rock to Boise I planned a stop in here based off previous reviews. Going in I was a little prejudiced and was not expecting too much. The menu looked ambitious, I was not sure it would deliver.

I rolled in between lunch and dinner times. There were a few tables being used in the dining area and one other group in the bar. The space is used well. Decorated in a western, lodge style, but in the best taste. The bar menu seemed impressive for the market. There were twelve of their own beers on tap and some variation of BMC. Their wine list and liquor list was good as well.

I had a pint of the 7200' Stout and tasters of the Altitude Amber Ale, Bearpaw Brown Ale, Expedition Porter and a Belgium Grand Cru. For food I grabbed the Mini Beef Medallions.

The stout was well done, a solid stout. Of the other beers, the Grand Cru was pretty good. The rest of them were fairly good, but not outstanding. I took a grower of the Cru for later. The prices were excellent. If I was a student at UWy I would be getting kegs of their beer on the reg.

The food was amazing. I was pulled into getting the Mini Beef Medallions because they came with fried Manchego cheese. A very well done plate.

Recommendation: Go. I wish I had this place in my neighborhood; I would be a regular. I am planning on stopping here on my way back to get a better sample of the beers and food.

This is a find! If there is any reason to stop in Laramie for a craft brew lover, this is it!

I found the selection abundant of various choices including an IPA, a near Mai bock, a tremendously robust porter & a hefty tasty stout! There were two IPAs offer the night I visited. There was a Vertical IPA & a Grizzly Whisper IPA. The Grizzly Whisper IPA is a sweetened IPA for those who object to the "bite" of cascade hops.

The wait staff who served me knew her stuff about beer & the brewery she works for.

It is very reasonably priced.

They will fill or refill any growler provided it has the required government warning.

Altitude is a very nice place to go in Laramie where ther are few options. A very nice atmosphere inside with seating tables in front of the bar area as well as down a hallway past the bar and the fermenters behind it. Also on the right immediatelly as you enter, a doorway leads to a room that is a little more casual with pool tables, tables, and televisions.

Food selection is very good and I have not ever had anything bad from there. Nothing crazy but some things you wont see in other places in town including a favorite of mine from there, pepperjack cheesesticks.

A nice place to go with parents or other visitors in town and I would highly recommend stopping by there for those who may be passing through Laramie on I-80.

this place is nice, one of the places in laramie you are better off heading to for dinner. food is always good as is the beer, which they generally have a decent amount to choose from, and is quality. service is a bit slow sometimes but generally friendly or something close to it. busy nights can be long waits for tables too. as laramie is a very small town with a college, it can tend to get a bit loud and rowdy near the bar area, and sometimes it will even sprawl out a bit. unless the place is packed, this doesn't seem to be too much of an issue.
