Steve’s love for great beer started over 20 years ago when he and a friend began home brewing. Within the last 4 years, his passion for brewing took the next step. In 2009, Steve and his wife decided to create a family room out of a small existing room and the garage in their home. In this family room, Steve built a 16 foot Bar with two taps, and decided to brew some beer for those taps. Once the bar and family room were completed, they threw a get together for some friends. Everyone raved about Steve’s beer and encouraged him to sell it. The family room became a regular stop for friends, and the Bar in the Garage became known as “The Barrage”. In 2010, Barrage Brewing Company was founded.
Barrage Brewing has a wide variety of styles, with over 27 different beers. Steve’s skill for making great beer stems from years of researching and testing different recipes utilizing yeasts and hops and other ingredients, some locally sourced and some from around the world. In 2012, Steve attended the Siebel Institute of Technology and World Brewing Academy in Chicago, IL to further enhance his brewing knowledge and expertise. Steve’s desire is to make great small batch beer for the beer enthusiast and the beer novice. Barrage beer line up rotates throughout the year.
What began in my garage is now available in yours (or your home). Wherever you choose to drink your brew, just enjoy it responsibly.
PS: A barrage is defined as an overwhelming, concentrated outpouring of… let’s say beer.
