Like most brewers, what began as a weekend hobby has grown into so much more. Kevin Larson started with the standard
extract kit but 8 years later now brews on an all-grain system that has taken over his entire garage.
Kevin is a Firefighter/Paramedic by day (and many nights), but his true passion is brewing. When not perfecting his favorite traditional ale recipes, Kevin is working on the business plan for his future brewery, Coastal Acres Brewing Company.
Kevin was inspired to create Coastal Acres Brewing Company because of the rich artisan food community in which he lives. "I feel lucky to live in Petaluma at a time when craft beer is finally getting the respect it deserves. More than just a libation, great craft beer goes hand in hand with fresh locally produced foods to create more than just a meal, but a full dining experience," Kevin writes.
As an avid outdoorsman, Kevin enjoy trail running, mountain biking, camping, and pretty much any activity along our picturesque coast. In celebration of the amazing geographical area we live in, he looks forward to brewing beer on a professional level for a community that shares his love for the coast, artisan food and craft beer.
Kevin's charity is the Big Brothers Big Sisters of the North Bay.
