Aleman Brewing was assembled by Nate Albrecht, Josh Bearry, Jim Moorehouse and Brad Zeller. We are a living, breathing Voltron of strengths, opinions and experiences. We are governed by the urban hustle and corn-fed integrity of our sweet home, Chicago. Our loyalties are to each other, our duties are to our families, and our responsibilities are to the communities in which we operate. We tackle problems creatively. We value the importance of personal relationships. And we make great beer.

The Man is not an oppressive governmental regime. Nor is it that movie with Jules Winnfield and the dad from American Pie. It's not even the hit single from recording mega-star Aloe Blacc. The Man is simply the boss. It's DayMan without the coffee. In a market dominated by hops,  our base IPA has evolved into a consistent workhorse perfect for any occasion.

The Man contrasts a malt bill of mostly Pale Malt, accentuated by Acidulated and Crystal Malts, with bright, assertive Cascade, Amarillo, Mosaic, and Citra hops.
