Matt founded his own brewery, Ploughshare Brewing Company, in Lincoln, Nebraska in 2014. 

Matt will present to UBG members on May 1 on "Exciting Safety Resources for Brewers" at Squatters downtown at 4pm. 

The content is in four parts: 1) BA’s commitment to safety; 2) a discussion of helpful safety resources for brewers with an emphasis on including free, valuable brewer resources, such as BA-developed Best Management Practices, video education, forum interaction, and presentations; 3) an overview of the hazard assessment process; and 4) a rundown of some commonplace safetyconcerns for brewers. Since each state has known peculiarities having to with safety laws, OSHA, etc., Matt will also address state-specific programs.
