At Stupid Hare Brews we believe beer is more than just a drink; it’s a cold glass of fermented flavors invigorating your taste buds with every sip. Our love for quality beer begins with the first kernel of grain and ends with the final savory sip. Each beer is carefully handcrafted with quality ingredients, creating a full-flavored craft beer topped off with the perfect aromas. Each beer poured is designed to satisfy all beer lovers, from the basic beer drinkers to the more refined pallet. There is a beer snob in all of us… embrace it!
Founded by Chicagoland native Martin Szpiech, Stupid Hare Brews started as most breweries do, as a dream. Martin was first introduced to the craft beer scene when friends started to bring new and intriguing beers to parties instead of the standard everyday beers. Immediately his mind was opened to countless possibilities. Always on the hunt for new flavors and rare finds, he just could not seem to find the perfect beer; so he decided to make one.
Martin started home brewing with a small fryer and whatever materials he could get his hands on. That soon evolved into him building his half-barrel electric setup. It was with this setup he was able to turn his creative ideas into delicious brews. His love for beer soon turned into a passion for brewing. He could no longer deny he had become quite the beer snob and decided it was time to share his creations with his fellow snobs.
