About

It began on a road trip...

Driving on a dark stretch of two lane road, founders Michael and Alissa Marquess were pondering how to better live their creed of ‘finding joy in the adventure’. They came up with a plan that brought together their passions of craft beer, travel, Arizona and the enjoyment of life; they decided to create a brewery.

The Mother Road was the moniker given to U.S. Highway 66 by Grapes of Wrath author John Steinbeck, as he shared the story of the fictional Joad family, who traveled the road in hopes of trading desperation and heartache for hope and new beginnings. The Mother Road Brewery now resides along a lost portion of the storied highway, symbolizing both the journey we’ve made and our passion for craft beer, motoring and history.

Our Staff

These are the women and men that wash the kegs, make the beer, fill the cans, sell to accounts, welcome you to the brewery, serve your pint, keep your social media hopped up, and look out for you as our beer friends and family.

Next time you see one of them, thank them for what the do - producing some of Arizona's finest craft beer.

Cheers!
