Steve in Banters (Website)_edited.jpg

Steve Brancato: Owner/Founder

After spending several years as an avid homebrewer, Steve successfully launched Downriver sister company, Banter's Hard Cider in 2016. With a desire to not only expand his company in size but also in product line, Downriver Brewing was born in 2019. Steve still produces all of the ciders for Banter's and can be seen occasionally helping out the brew crew (...but mostly driving them crazy) at Downriver.
