The people at Mount Carmel Brewing Co. take their beer seriously. Very seriously.
Beer started as a hobby for Kathleen and Mike Dewey. Mike, 40, a tinkerer and a perfectionist, was making beer using an open fire and a garden hose in the small barn back of their place in Mount Carmel area of Union Township. He was working in construction and she was a real estate agent.
It wasn’t that long ago, but it seems very far away. Now they have four 30-barrel fermenters, five employees and plans to expand. And they quit their jobs.
