Beer Birthday: Matt Van Wyk

oakshire
Today is Matt Van Wyk’s 41st birthday. Matt was the brewmaster at Flossmoor Station but a 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. Join me in wishing Matt a very happy birthday.
