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. Demand has continued to fuel growth, and The Hidden Mother taproom and expansion project is targeted to be completed in Spring 2019.
We take pride in every part of the brewing process from start to finish. We relentlessly search for the best, high-quality local ingredients to bring you the tastiest, most unique beers you have ever guzzled down. We were born to innovate, always thinking outside the keg, which is why our beers are constantly changing. So come on down and try our beers. We guarantee you will not be disappointed in the slightest.
