Who the hell are we?

The Marz collective is comprised of home brewers, professional brewers and artists that found each other while drinking beers 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.
