Sr. Head Brewer
Matt started his Iron Hill career in 2006 as a bartender. His love for craft beer, though, took from behind the bar and into the brewery, taking a position as an Assistant Brewer. He started by cleaning kegs and cleaning up one day per week. Over time, however, Matt took on more and more responsibilities. He is now full-time brewer and hasn’t looked back since.
Ben was born in Belgium, so as you can imagine he is very partial to the Belgian styles of beer! As a child, he split his time between Brussels and Philadelphia. He attended the University of the Arts for Illustration but found brewing was the creative outlet he truly desired. He truly fell in love with craft beer while working at Tria Café in Philadelphia. He then started his brewing career at Nodding Head brewpub and moved on to Philadelphia Brewing Company where he worked his way up to Head Brewer. He joined Iron Hill in September of 2017 as Head Brewer in West Chester. You can usually find Ben in the brewery or at the bar where he enjoys passing on his love of great beer to staff and guests alike.
