Leveraging his successful 15 year brewing career, Brewmaster Steve Altimari is proud to enter his fifth year at the helm of High Water Brewing. "High Water" being a playful interpretation of Steve's last name. A loose Italian translation of "Alta" meaning High and "Mare" meaning Seas or Water led us to the High Water name.
Inspired by the most creative brewing practices and styles across the world, Steve's love of beer and unbridled passion for all things flavorful have led to a line of products that represent the very best of the best. Steve's vision of creating unique and flavorful beers and getting them into a glass have taken fruition.
