Latin American, Made in Xicago
The vast and delicious cuisines of Central and South America hold a treasure trove of flavors, aromas and textures, much of which feels right at home in a well-made beer. We combine these ingredients and ideas with our own experiences to make subtle and deeply delicious beers, not mere novelty items. Each beer speaks with our voice and adds to the story. We put the best ingredients together so that the whole beer adds up to much more than the sum of its parts.
5 Rabbit is the first US-based Latino-owned and inspired brewery. Founded and run by Andrés Araya, the company is named after the children of Mayahuel, the Aztec goddess of agave, AKA the base ingredient for tequila and mezcal. According to lore, Mayahuel’s lover, Ehecatl-Quetzalcoatl, buried her remains after her grandmother had her murdered. Myth says the first maguey plant bloomed from her remains, symbolizing life. Mayahuel mothered Centzon Tōtōchtin, a group of 400 rabbits considered the gods of drunkenness—5 Rabbit was one of the leaders of the 400. Legends aside, these folks make some pretty damn delicious beer.
