One would think in a city like Portland, Maine that brothers Noah and Peter Bissell would have a very tough time cracking into the already booming local and national craft brew market. But what most wouldn’t count on is the experience and creativity each brother brings to the equation. Once people see the packaging of the craft brews in the fall they’ll understand what strengths the Bissell brothers possess. Yet before they have even made their beer available to the public the brothers have already garnered quite a buzz in the craft beer world.
Peter; 29 is already a very accomplished well-known commercial photographer with projects ranging from weddings to food to clothing and everything in between. Noah; 23 is a recent University of Maine at Farmington grad who relocated to Portland last year. The brothers grew up in Milo, Maine, a small town in Piscataquis county boasting a population of only about 2,300. We recently sat down with Noah and Peter to ask the question: Why craft beer?
