We also learned how hard being 100 percent organic in hop farming is, whether a brewery makes good beer or not matters to them when selling their hops, and why they both love Comet hops so much.

His journey into the craft beer world started with homebrewing. That passion led him to working with the top homebrewing store in Indiana, Great Fermentations. Thanks to a chance encounter while working at the homebrew shop, Kessel became the head brewer for Grand Junction Brewing, a startup brewing in Westfield, IN at the time.
