John Kraemer


John is a native of Eden Prairie, MN and attended Eden Prairie High School just down the road from Hackamore Brewing Company. When he’s not enjoying a craft beer with friends, he builds and remodels homes with his brother and dad at the renowned home-building firm, John Kraemer & Sons. John and his brother, Jeff, represent the third generation of builders at the 45-year-old family business. Specializing in high-end, luxury residential building and remodeling, John brings an eye for quality and attention to detail to the Hackamore team which will be evident in the design and buildout of Hackamore Brewing.

John attended Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, MN where he met his wife, Lauren, on the very first day of Freshman orientation. They reside in Edina with their two wonderful kids. After 15+ years of marriage, they spend the majority of their “free time” chauffeuring their offspring to baseball, hockey, soccer, gymnastics, softball, horse riding lessons, and every other activity you can think of. An avid baseball fan, John enjoys volunteering on multiple boards, as well as coaching baseball and softball during the Summer and Fall months.

While John enjoys many craft beer styles, his favorite is Left Hand Brewing Co’s Milk Stout.
