Beer Birthday: Matt Van Wyk

Today is Matt Van Wyk’s 43rd birthday. Matt was the brewmaster at Flossmoor Station but a number of years ago moved to Eugene, Oregon to brew at Oakshire Brewing. He also used to co-write one of the best brewer’s blogs, the Flossmoor Station Blog and is now blogging for Oakshire, though not nearly as much these days. Join me in wishing Matt a very happy birthday.
