Black Cloister Brewing Company

Our Team

We are passionate about our motto of “Brew Good. Do Good.” and every member of our team lives out this intention.

Kate Matz

Chief Financial Officer

As part of Kate’s role as the Director of Davenport, Hanf & Company, LLC’s Advisory Services practice, she serves as Black Cloister’s CFO. She was introduced to the world of craft beer when she met Tom and the other Black Cloister Founders in 2013. She was struck by the passion of the Founders, and was immediately excited to be part of the team to bring the idea of Black Cloister Brewing Co. to fruition. She currently anxiously awaits the development of a gluten-free Black Cloister beer or cider.



Our bartending and serving staff aren’t just a bunch of pretty faces! We’re passionate about fine brews, and we’re eager to share the remarkable offerings from the Black Cloister both with craftbeer aficionados, and with those brand new to the scene who may have a ton of questions!
