Wessel studied at the International Center of Photography in New York City, where she started her photographic career as a photographer's assistant. Cathrine began her career documenting the music industry. From there she went on to shooting recording artists and music labels. Wessel moved from the music scene into sports and fashion, where the majority of her current work resides.
Wessel has shot advertising campaigns for many sports companies, such as Nike, Nautica, Adidas and Reebok. Her photographic work interested Norwegian Television brand TV2, and included Wessel in a 6 episode series about native Norwegians pursuing the American dream.
In addition to her work as a photographer, Cathrine and husband, Stian Tolns, own the luxury wool basics clothing line, With & Wessel. The collection is inspired by the old Norwegian traditions of wearing wool in layers.
Brewery founder Shaun Hill learned to make beer for a science fair project while in high school, and then started a home-brew club in college. His first commercial experience was at The Shed in Vermont. Hill then went on to brew in Denmark at Fan Bryghus and Nrrebro Bryghus, before returning to the US to launch his own brewery.
Since opening, the brewery has received widespread acclaim for its beers across a range of styles, most notably American Pale Ale, IPA, Porter and Saison. In 2011, Hill Farmstead was awarded the title of 'Best New Brewery in the World' by consumer review website RateBeer.com. In 2012, 2014 and 2015, the RateBeer community named Hill Farmstead the 'Best Brewery in the World' (it finished second in 2013). Consequently, the brewery also earned the 2015 'Best Brewery in Vermont' and 'Best Brewery in the United States' titles.
