He returned to New York at the urging of his wife and two children in 1984 and settled in Brooklyn. Steve started brewing beer at home, a hobby he picked up in the Middle East from American diplomats working in strict Islamic countries where alcoholic beverages were forbidden. With his Brooklyn neighbor Tom Potter, he quit his job and started Brooklyn Brewery, the first successful brewery in Brooklyn since Schaefer and Rheingold closed in 1976. Today, Brooklyn beers are sold in over half the United States and more than 20 countries around the world. Famed Brooklyn Brewmaster Garrett Oliver and his team brew an ever-growing portfolio of beers for every palate that run the gamut from traditional to boundary-pushing.
