Today is the 49th birthday of Steve Donohue, former brewmaster at Firehouse Grill & Brewery in Sunnyvale, California. Steve is an unsung brewer who deserves more accolades and fame. After Firehouse, He spent some time brewing at Hermitage Brewing while working on opening his own place. Steve’s brewery, Santa Clara Valley Brewing is was open and, not surprisingly, seemed to be going gangbusters, but unfortunately he recently closed it as the pandemic hit California. Join me in wishing Steve a very happy birthday.
