Joe Kesteloot is a brewing legend. He began his brewing career after being introduced to home brewing by his father's friend after graduating college at Iowa State University where he received a degree in Fine Arts. After attending and graduating from American Brewers Guild he became a brewer at Cold Spring Brewing Company in Cold Spring, MN. 

In 2009, Joe and his family moved to Knoxville, IA where he became the head brewer for Peace Tree Brewing Company. During his 12.5 years with Peace Tree Joe's beers won two gold medals at the Great American Beer Festival. We were lucky enough to have Joe join our Gezellig family as head brewer in 2021.


Fun fact. Joe loves to brew sours and hazies.
