Tom and Susanne Hohaus have lived in Knoxville since 2006. Tom is a former aircraft mechanic and Susanne works in human resources. Their love of craft beer goes back many years.

Tom spent 10 years growing up overseas and was exposed to many different people and cultures. He quickly learned to appreciate different foods as well as beer. As imported and craft beer became more available in the United States, his interest was rekindled.


He began exploring different styles of beer and gained a deeper understanding of their complexities. Wanting to know more, he began to study brewing science and became an avid home brewer. Sharing his knowledge and love of beer has become his hobby and greatest passion. With the opening of the Casual Pint of Hardin Valley, he is able to achieve his dream of turning his hobby into a way of life.
