BC002: Shawn Kessel of Taxman Brewing Company
It's our first official episode and Shawn Kessel, shift brewer for Taxman Brewing Company, was nice enough to be our first guest. 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. His time at Grand Junction ended not as he would have liked, but it ultimately led to his employment with Taxman Brewing and he says he couldn't be happier.
