Neighbor makes Spiteful Brewing’s new beer possible

SHARE Neighbor makes Spiteful Brewing’s new beer possible

Neighbors help each other out. It used be an egg or a cup of sugar. Today it might be a bag for lawn clippings or a charging cord for a cellphone.

Spiteful Brewing got a barrel from its neighbor, and this week is releasing its Absinthe Barrel-Aged Klutzy Buffoon Saison. Spiteful packaged 264 bottles of the beer, which was aged 47 days in a absinthe barrel from Letherbee Distillers.

“We’re lucky to be neighbors of Letherbee. We couldn’t have done this without them,” Spiteful co-founder Jason Klein said.

Spiteful Brewing, founded in 2011, brews small-batch beers in Chicago’s North Center neighborhood. The company makes five- and seven-barrel batches and packages its beers in 22-ounce bottles and 16-ounce and 12-ounce cans.
