Spiteful Brewing was among the initial third wave brewers to emerge from Chicago’s burgeoning craft beer scene in 2012. The brewery has grown steadily and maintained a steadfast commitment to modern interpretations of classic styles. In our conversation with Founder Jason Klein we learn about the brewery’s roots in self-distribution; how the transition to working with one of the largest wholesalers in the United States has changed their business and thinking; and their spiteful attitude to hyped contemporary beers and their sensibilities.
We look forward to following up with Jason (among others) on the back of recent news that Lakeshore Beverage was acquiring Breakthru Beverage’s beer and cider portfolio. Good Beer Hunting synthesized the news and added larger context nicely HERE.
