    Luke Kemper owns and operates Swamp Head Brewery.  He helps to manage and run the entire company alongside an awesome team who strives to make great beer and live an active lifestyle.

    “Gainesville is known for many things, the University, Shands, great music, great food, and I wanted to be a part of that. I think beer brings people together and there is a ton of local pride in this town,”  Kemper said. “I wanted to make something that would make people smile when they talk about us.”

    Kemper is also passionate about sustainability and the environment, and he’s made sure that his business aligns with these values. Much like Jacques Cousteau, the French oceanographer, he’s made a career from what he loves and he’s willing to explore the unknown.  Swamp Head’s tasting room is now 100 percent carbon neutral, and they’re the first in the state to use solar power.  In addition, Swamp Head has planted over 100,000 trees in Alachua County and cleaned up over 10 tons of trash from Florida’s coastal waters.
