Jason Lowery

Jason got introduced to craft beer back in 2004 and has been intrigued by all the the unique flavors that light beers never had. Although it took some visits to a few breweries and some persuasion, Jason finally took the plunge. Lucky for Jason, he had some connection with pro brewers over in Cleveland that invited him over for a brew day and after that, he never looked back!

Just after 5 months of brewing, he entered a local homebrew competition and came in second place with an all Citra hopped NEIPA. This win gave him the opportunity to ramp up the recipe and brew with a local brewery for them to have on tap. Whatta a fun experience!!

The brewer started Steele City Brewing in 2019 with the vision of community in mind. "What amazes me is how something as simple a liquid can bring a community from all walks of life together‚ÄĚ, says the brewer.

Be sure to check out Steele City Brewing on social. Cheers!

I just can't get enough of YVH consistency! Not only just the customer service, super fast shipping, and hop selection......Yakima Valley Hops just always has the passion and products that I desire. I want quality products in my beers, and I never have to worry about getting less than that from YVH.
