It Takes a Village.

Every brewery has a unique story full of twists, turns, ups and downs. The Hidden Mother Brewery is no exception and is proud to share its story with you.

A Brewer’s Dream With A Unique Vision, and the Will to Make it Happen.

The Hidden Mother Brewery began as a dream of a home brewer.

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.
