Matt Belson and Mike Segerson started brewing together in 2010. What started off as a hobby, quickly evolved into a passion. After weekly gatherings to brew and talk about beer, the pair came up with the idea for Devil’s Purse Brewing Company and their goal to open a craft brewery in Cape Cod, became a reality.
Belson and Segerson improved their craft by traveling to a variety of breweries and obtaining advice from professional brewers. After several site visits, they found a wonderful location to open their brewery in the town of Dennis. On Jan. 1, 2015, Belson and Segerson received their permits and their first test batch of beer was brewed on Feb. 27, 2015.
After years of brewing in their home kitchen, tasting their first beer brewed in their new commercial system was, “truly satisfying, especially when it tasted delicious,” said Belson.
Throughout the years, Devil’s Purse Brewing Company has evolved into producing a variety of beers, including Surfman’s Check™ ESB and Pollock Rip™ IPA. Due to their love of creativity and experimentation, they feature rotating and seasonal beers including Cuddy Queen™ American Pale Ale, Shiso Berry Ale, Dock Lizard™ Imperial Spiced Ale and Sevenstones™ Double IPA.
The journey to opening Devil’s Purse Brewing Company was filled with incredible experiences, trial and error, and many laughs.
“Starting Devil’s Purse Brewing Company has been and remains an incredible journey,” said Belson. “We could not have come this far without the support of our families, friends, and positive guidance from incredible people along the way.”
Belson and Segerson are devoted to brewing their beer with the finest ingredients. Having the opportunity to share their handcrafted beers with the public is a dream come true.
“We continue to be inspired by the tremendous craft beers that are being produced around the country,” said Segerson. “We are excited to share them with our awesome Cape Cod community and for all lovers of craft beer to enjoy.”
