Blatant Brewery is a beer production company.
Founded by Matthew Steinberg.
These days all the Blatant beers are brewed exclusively by Matthew at Pioneer Brewing Company at the Hyland Orchards in Fiskdale, MA. We are very proud to be brewing our beers at this facility. Some call this contract brewing, some call it a beer marketing company, others have called it gypsy brewing. Not sure I want to be called a gypsy, so we call it brewing beer at a host brewery. Kind of like the sound of that, don’t ya? Well… so do we.
Matthew has been brewing craft beer for 15 years. He has worked in many sectors of the industry, including small brewpubs, a large brewpub chain, a large craft brewer, a contract brewery, and most recently a start-up craft brewery. Matthew has received numerous accolades, several beer industry medals, and has earned a reputation for creating high quality and remarkable beers.
While working as head brewer at Offshore Ale Company on Martha’s Vineyard (‘03-‘07), Matthew designed and brewed many world class beers, earning him a reputation as a creative and innovative brewer. He also designed and managed the production and sales of two bottled products for Offshore Ale Co., which were brewed at Casco Bay Brewing Company in Portland, Maine. During his tenure, production of the bottled beer increased from 2000 cases in year one to over 20,000 by year three.
As the Director of Operations for a start-up craft brewery, Mayflower Brewing Company (’07-’10), Matthew designed and introduced four new year round beers to the Massachusetts market plus 2 seasonal offerings. He was instrumental in the design and installation of the entire brewing system, packaging and distribution departments. Mayflower’s beers have been well received by both industry professionals and consumers, earning medals at the Great International Beer Festival and the Great British Beer Festival.
