OCBC 2017 Keynote Speaker:
OCBC 2017 Keynote Speaker, Matt Phillips, Founder of Phillips Brewing & Malting Co.
Matt Phillips, Founder of Phillips Brewing & Malting Co., Victoria, BC — “The Importance of Craft Culture in a Growing Market

About Matt Phillips:

Matt got his beer start homebrewing his way through University, afterwards supporting his thirst for craft beer through brewery jobs at the Grizzly Paw in Canmore AB, Whistler Brewing, Wildhorse Brewery (Penticton, BC) and Spinnakers Brewpub in Victoria. In 2001, he spotted a used 7BBL brewhouse and some used dairy tanks, and moved them into a 1300 sq. ft. warehouse to create Phillips Brewing Co. A one-man show for the first few years, Phillips has moved two times since being established, and now encompasses a Malting Plant, Distillery and two brewhouses. The brewery is host to several summer festivals, 70 different beers a year, and a number of environmental awards for its commitment to sustainability. Matt lives on a small farm outside Victoria BC with his wife Paula and two children, where he has proven that he has no aptitude for growing hops.
