Chicago craft beer made in Bridgeport

Marz Community Brewing Co. is dedicated to making small, artisanal batches of beer in a sustainable and socially responsible manner. Then we share them with our families, community, and friends we have yet to meet.

Our beer

Here’s a few of our latest,
look out for many (many) more dropping soon.

  • The Machine

    The Machine

    style: American Pale Ale / abv: 5.3%

    With a nod to our hardworking and highly powerful political organizations here in Chicago, Marz made this delicious beer to buy your vote.

  • The Bridgeporter

    The Bridgeporter

    style: Porter / abv: 6.3%

    The Bridgeporter is an homage to the South Side neighborhood we affectionally call the Community of the Future.

  • The Bubbly Creek

    The Bubbly Creek

    style: Berliner Weiss / abv: 3.0%

    The Bubbly Creek Wino Bacillus is Marz’s third offering in our South Side Sour line.

  • Smoke Wheat Every Day

    Smoke Wheat

    style: Grätzer / abv: 4.3%

    The Smoke Wheat Every Day Grätzer is straightforward, composed primarily of oak-smoked wheat. We were inspired by pint-in-a-paper-bag drinking whinos on Morgan Street and decided to blend a dry crisp Chardonnay with our living lacto wheat ale.

Who the hell are we?

The Marz collective is comprised of home brewers, professional brewers and artists that found each other while drinkingbeers at Maria's Packaged Goods & Community Bar.Our love of our neighborhood and good beer inspired us to create a new experience for natives and visitors to the Community of the Future: Bridgeport.

Who are the members of the Collective? Alex Robertson was born in a lacto pool and brewed at Crown. An original cholo, Mike Marszewski, is our guiding force. Pete Alvarado is a former Vice President of CHAOS home brew club. Johanna Wawro is our spiritual advisor. Michael Freimuth is our aesthetics impresario. Doktor Kazys Ozelis is one of Chicago's veteran homebrewers and is a founding member and former President of the HOPS home brew club. Eric Olson and Ed Marszewski are beer nerds that hail from Maria's. Mike Redwick is our guy who can do that. Mairead Case makes us look smarter than we are. Tom Piekarz came out of nowhere. Eli Espinoza is that guy who brewed everywhere. And Tim Lange is an award-winning home brewer turned pro. The lot of us has brewed in breweries around the city, in The Netherlands and in the great State of Indiana. We operate a 4 BBL Psychobrew system and we love it.
