Today is Matt Van Wyk’s 44th birthday. Matt was the brewmaster at Flossmoor Station but a number of years ago moved to Eugene, Oregon, where for a number of years he brewed at Oakshire Brewing. He also used to co-write one of the best brewer’s blogs, the Flossmoor Station Blog and again for Oakshire. Last fall, he announced his departure from Oakshire to start his own venture, Alesong Brewing & Blending, which should release its first beer later this month. Join me in wishing Matt a very happy birthday.
