The name "KelSo" is an amalgamation of the Brewmaster's name, Kelly Taylor, and that of his wife, Sonya Giacobbe. It was their goal to create flavorful, fresh and easy drinking beers for the people of Brooklyn and greater New York City. Since inception in 2006, we have met scores of people who have an association with the name Kelso. Whether a home-town (WA state and Scotland have towns named Kelso), a friend's last name, or a TV character, we've been happy to note that those associations have been markedly positive. We hope to consider the trend.
