Local land broker and #yourlandman, Johnny Klemme, couldn’t have picked a more serendipitous time to contact Chris Johnson about supporting the Big Pine Watershed. An Indiana native, Johnson had recently created a new flagship beer for his brewery, People’s Brewing Company, and had yet to name the tasty brew
“Chris has always been interested in local conservation matters so I had a feeling this could be a good partnership for his company,” says Klemme.
“Our goal at LAND VAL’UES is to build bridges between the agricultural community & local stakeholders. Helping create this partnership with Big Pine Creek Watershed & People’s Brewing Company is part of our larger effort to add social, economic, and environmental benefits to our local economy.”
An outdoors enthusiast, Johnson grew up canoeing and kayaking along the Pigeon and Fawn rivers – rivers that fall North of the Big Pine Watershed, making Klemme’s question an easy decision for Johnson.
“People’s vision from the beginning was to be a community-oriented brewery,” says Johnson, “supporting quality of life in our area and making a point to give back when possible. And good clean water is a key ingredient in beer!”Start a Conversation
