Knox County Brewing Company

Knox County Brewing Company While Sarah grew up on a family farm in Warren County, Matthew lived most of his life in Austin, Texas. It took a trip to the other side of the world for them to meet in Morocco, Africa. (Yes, there's a lot of blanks to fill in-between, but they would rather do that in person, over a beer!) After getting married in Illinois, they spent the next fifteen years living in Austin working as social entrepreneurs, opening new faith communities and non-profit organizations that would allow for new expressions of spiritual, cultural and community development. During those years, the local beer scene exploded in Central Texas, and Matthew and Sarah experienced the beauty that comes with brewery craftsmanship. In 2015, after years of international and local work, they were ready to set out on a new adventure, and return home. Upon arriving in Central Illinois, the Hansens began to dream about a brewery where the art of craft beer, and social good of development would join together for the benefit of a local community. That dream is being realized in Knox County Brewing Company.
