Grant is the founder and brewmaster of 3 Sheeps Brewing Company and a native of Manitowoc, a town just north of Sheboygan. After graduating from Northwestern University, he soon found himself running his family's precast concrete company based out of Kiel. About 11 years ago he received what turned out to be a life-changing gift from his wife: his first home-brewing kit. The hobby quickly turned into a passion, and the vision of starting a brewery started to take shape. He went to Siebel Institute in Chicago for some technical brewing training, and soon after purchased the brewing equipment of a former brewpub in Sheboygan where 3 Sheeps established its home.
