Kevin graduated from California State University, Fresno with a BS in Winemaking (Enology) and a minor in chemistry. Like his father, Kevin experimented with making beer in college and learned his chemistry background not only supported his focus on winemaking, but also tied in with making beer. Kevin’s dream of a winery matured into opening a brewery in the area where he felt at home, Grass Valley. David and Kevin achieved their dream, with the opening of 1849 Brewing Co.
