Spiteful Brewing

2024 W Balmoral Ave

What started with a spiteful incident as kids playing hockey on the pond turned into a lifelong friendship for Brad Shaffer and Jason Klein. With a passion for beer and a desire to start their own business, Spiteful launched in 2012 with G.F.Y. Stout, setting the tone for the aggressive flavors and attitudes of Spiteful’s beers.

After years of brewing in a 400 sq. ft basement in the Ravenswood Industrial Corridor, Spiteful moved operations to Bowmanville in 2017. This larger production facility (next door to Half Acre) makes Spiteful beer more widely available than ever in Illinois. Our tap room sports a rotating selection of 16 beers that are all made on-site.  We brew clean, drinkable beer in styles ranging from American IPAs, Porters, and Stouts to European-inspired lagers and Wheat Beers.
