Our Brewmaster Steven is a graduate of the University of Illinois having a degree in Industrial Design and Product Development. His first career was as an engineer building CAD models.
Now he has also graduated from the Institute of Brewing & Distilling (IBD), UK, and is a member of the Master Brewer Association of America and International Brewing, an education & background which, I am sure you will agree, he couples with a remarkable ability to make really delicious beer.
Congratulations to all!! Excellent Job!!
