A few years back, Bart Adons noticed that the average age of his veterinary customers was getting older every year. Few young people opt to run a small farm these days, because they’re competing with big national or global agribusiness companies and they can’t make a profit from a small holding. Adons decided his days as a vet were numbered, and with a fellow local vet called Cillian O’Mórain, Adons decided to diversify and make his and O’Moráin’s brewing hobby into a business, Mescan Brewery.
