Steven is the owner and currently the only brewer at Low Brau. Steven’s passion for beer was always somewhat subdued, as other than drinking quite a bit of it, a lot of focus was on cooking. Until he decided to try his hand at home brewing, the passion was released and now runs somewhat rampid. With a background in the food industry and many years of beer research, it was only natural for Steven to start brewing at home. Not too long thereafter, he was creating his own recipes, much as he did when cooking. He is looking forward to sharing his creativity and passion with everyone.
Steven was born in Frankfurt, Germany as a military brat. Once his father retired from the Army, the family settled down in Prince George County Virginia, Steven graduated from high school and then attended Virginia Tech. He started as a mechanical engineer before switching over to interior design. During high school and college, he worked at a couple of restaurant jobs, where his desire to cook was exposed to the surface. After graduation from Virginia Tech, he moved to northern Virginia to be close to his future wife. He also began his professional career in the architecture and design community in the DC metro area. He is now currently with Millar + Associates as an Associate. When not working, brewing, or working on the brewery, Steven spends time cooking, hiking, traveling, and trying to keep up with his wife and Heidi.
