Vanessa Bissell

What do you do at Bissell brothers? 

I love being one of the many faces in the tasting room sharing our story and product with customers who love this industry and community as much as we do. 

How did you get involved with Bissell Brothers?

When we first opened, I worked Saturdays in the tasting room when there was no staff and no money and not nearly as many customers. Fortunately the team grew rapidly as did demand for the product; Peter and I had our son; and I left my 9-5. The pivot to focus professionally on the business and community has been incredibly fulfilling. 

What is your favorite thing about bbb?

Seeing my friends who feel like family, and also, my actual family. 

what do you do outside of the brewery?

Woodworking and raising an amazing human being.

what is your most prized possession?


if you could have one super power what would it be? 

My instinct is mind reading, but I also feel like that would be very dangerous. I have dreams about breathing underwater.
