Meet The Staff
MEET OUR FRIENDLY, KNOWLEDGEABLE STAFF!
Kevin Keuler // Co-Owner
Kevin is the co-owner of Brew & Grow MN which started in Wisconsin 28 years ago! Kevin works on the sales floor most often and is constantly greeting customers with a friendly “hello”! With so much experience in the business, he is very knowledgeable at answering all your home brew, winemaking, and gardening questions! One of the best parts about owning Brew & Grow for Kevin is working with people with similar interest as him and helping people brew the best beer they possibly can! Kevin really enjoys organic gardening and brewing beer (pale ales are his favorite)! He prefers kegging his homebrews over cleaning & bottling which is why the kegging system is his favorite product! One of Kevin’s favorite activities outside of work is ice fishing, so if you can’t find him at the store, he may be out on the ice!
