Lakewood Brewery Founder Wim Bens On the Art and Science of Brewing

by | Feb 13, 2022
The Belgium-born brewer, who sold his first keg of beer in 2012, cut the cord to his ad-world career and never looked back. Ten years later, Lakewood Brewery is a family-owned success with a lineup of award-winning craft beers. Every beer starts with a kernel of an idea, Bens says. His taproom has an R&D system in place so Lakewood’s "mad scientist brewers" can explore new styles and flavors.
