KC Dunstan

KC grew up among the cornfields of NW Ohio, but found his love for beer when he moved to Denver in 2002. In 2008, he received a Coopers DIY kit from his mother-in-law for Christmas that fomented (fermented?) an obsession with the process of brewing. When not thinking about, drinking, or cooking with beer, he’s cycling around his new hometown of Columbus with his wife and daughters in tow.

As any beer fanatic in the midwest and beyond knows, January is Bells Hopslam season. Long on hops and ABV but short on supply, it can be tough to find in even the biggest markets. As if battling fellow fanatics for the limited supply wasn’t hard enough, you also apparently have to compete with bottle shops (see: Hopslamgate here, here,  here, here, and here). Read More
