Steve Barnhart
Owner & Chief Brewing Officer
Favorite Beer Style: English ESB

For nearly 20 years Steve Barnhart chased the American dream in the corporate world. Now, he’s pursuing his passion as founder and head brewer of Lock 27 Brewing. Having been a home brewer since 1997 it was a natural fit for the “second act” of his life’s work. In 2013 he opened Lock 27 Brewing in Centerville, Ohio with one goal in mind: crafting enjoyable beers that invite exploration and conversation. Now with a production brewery in Dayton and two Brewpubs, Steve continues on his journey of sharing authentically different beers with the people of Dayton and beyond.
