Steve was born in Richmond, England, not far from the Scottish border. During one of his many travels, he meets the Dutch Yvonne. He decides to follow her and to settle in the Netherlands. Steve and Yvonne get married and Steve sets up his own painting company with restoration work as a specialty.
From painter to brewer
When Steve turned fifty, he decided to change his life. He stopped his painting business and bought a farm in Rha, a hamlet near Bronkhorst (Gelderland). This is where he starts a beer brewery.
In 2010, Steve and Yvonne founded Rodenburg Brewery, named after the former horse company "Rodenburg", which was located in the farm.
