Steve Altimari created the formation of High Water Brewing in March 2011.   “High Water” being a playful interpretation of Altimari from Italian, “Alta” meaning High and “Mare” meaning Sea or Water.

The Shepherds met Steve and Barri Altimari during a blending session at Almanac. These innovative gypsy brewers are widely know for their multi award winning Campfire Stout (GABF Gold 2014) and they will be widely known for their world class barrel aged fruited sours and their perfectly refreshing Cucumber Kolsch.

You will notice many of their beers have Grateful Dead references such as Stella Blue Sour, Ramble on Rose, and Sugaree Maple Pecan Pie.  We, the Shepherds, certainly appreciate this kind salute!
