The Hidden Mother began as a dream project for brewer Mike deTar, who learned the art of brewing in the San Francisco-Oakland Bay area. Relocating to the Spokane region in 2013, Mike and his friend Bob (RIP) fabricated the brewery’s first commercial system. With a small group of partners, The Hidden Mother constructed its first home on family property. Operational in early 2018, the first beers became available in March of that year.
The quality and unique character of the beers were recognized at the Washington Beer Awards during the first year. The Hidden Mother walked away with Gold and Silver medals in the experimental category, and 8 of the 9 submissions landed in the medal rounds. With too many beers to brew and not enough room at the original family brewhouse Hidden Mother Brewery opened its current Spokane location in late 2019 where we have proudly been brewing ever since.
We take pride in every part of the brewing process from start to finish and relentlessly search for the finest local ingredients to bring you the best beers possible. We were born to innovate and never settle in the mission to perfect our beautiful craft. Spokane has welcomed us with open arms and we are thrilled to brew for you.
