Steve is the resident Craft Beer specialist at McLean Hallmark and the founder of the Protect Your Craft program.  A hop head, foodie and wino himself – he loves all things craft !  Not only for it’s taste – for the characteristics of it’s brewers who are generally independently owned entrepreneurs who put emphasis on quality, flavor and technique.  Understanding that craft industries face a host of unique challenges deriving from a wide range of risks, they created a program that focuses on these unique risks and that caters to the needs and values of each brewery.

Along with providing insurance solutions for all things craft, Steve also provides special product solutions for contract brewers.  The program also provides excise bonds for breweries business’ needs.
