Kevin Hamilton started growing hops in 2017 on his in-laws' farm with approximately 50 plants. By harvest time, he had done his research and was ready to jump right into all-grain brewing. He invested in a Grainfather and an all American canner with three other brewers and started a brewing group with some family members, called FAMCO Brewing https://www.instagram.com/famcobrewing. FAMCO Brewing meets at least once a week to brew, brewed over 200 batches of all different types of styles, and even dabbled in cider, mead and kombucha. Kevin is also actively involved with the Members of Barleyment.
