Pint Talking

Nov 18, 2022

This week I travel to Bell Tower Brewing in Kent, Ohio. My guest for this episode is Jennifer Hermann who is one of the co-owners as well as the head brewer for Bell Tower. In this interview we talk about the history of the brewery from it being in church in the mid 1800s to it becoming the home of a commercial laundry equipment company, and then later becoming Kent’s 3rd brewery. Jennifer talks about her early fascination with beer that led to her home brewing and then later volunteering at Thirsty Dog and Hoppin Frog. Eventually she landed a brewing gig at Market Garden in Cleveland and the rest is history. During the interview we sampled the following beers

  1. Sci-uri-dae (Schwartzbier) - 4.4%
  2. 1858 (American Porter) – 6%
  3. Geist der Glocke (German Pilsner) – 5%
  4. Cinquième (Wet Hopped Saison) – 6.6%
  5. Greenhorn (Wet Hopped IPA) – 6.7%
