Mario Bourgeois, Owner & Craft Brewer
Mario, very proud father of his two young children, Èmy and Léo alongside his high school sweetheart wife Mylène, is a passionate serial entrepreneur who is always on the hunt for the next opportunity. He started as a businessman in 2000 with a web development company that he sold a few years ago to open his own micro brewery Cassel Brewery with two partners.
