Matt Van Wyk
Recruited from Chicago, Matt is a beer industry veteran with 12 years of experience and numerous national accolades: the GABF Small Brewpub Brewmaster of the Year in 2006, and upon joining Oakshire he won a Silver Medal for our Overcast Espresso Stout.
As Brewmaster, Matt oversees the production of our Year Round and Seasonal Beers, while simultaneously crafting a staggering array of small batch beers. While you may find Matt out promoting Oakshire, he spends most of his days at the brewery - brewing, racking, packaging, barrel-tending, sampling and blending. Oh, and he's a real nice guy too.
