Kate Russell and Joey Medeiros of Hopkinsville Brewing Company are here today on The Brewer’s Life Podcast. Both of these outstanding brewers have contributed heart, passion, and dedication to their art. It’s this love that makes this brewery something truly special. Hopkinsville Brewing Company opened its doors September of 2016, and has been brewing amazing beers ever since.
On today’s show, Kate speaks to the origin and founding of Hopkinsville Brewing Company. She has tons of insight that only someone who has braved the start-up process can speak to. Both Kate and Joey are brewers with academic credentials to back up their expertise. When these two speak you can tell they know their craft, and are happy to share some of their brewing techniques and secrets with the listener.
