About Lucky Lab’s Ben Flerchinger

Ben is passionate about beer. He has been brewing at the Lucky Lab for 10 years, and homebrewing for 8 years before then. He started washing kegs and worked his way up to becoming a delicious beer maker for the Portland public. In 2006 the Quimby location opened and Ben was appointed to be the lead brewer. Before it opened he was brewing at the original Lucky Labrador Brewery on Southeast Hawthorne Street with Alex Stiles, the co-owner and head brewer for that location.  Flerchinger loves collaborations between the breweries because it’s fun to merge creative ideas that involve beer. Being creative is one of the many reasons Ben loves working at the Lab, he says, “I’m so lucky to be here.”  There are 20 beers on tap at all times.  Constant creativity, a good variety of beer, plus a whole lot of laid back attitude makes brewing Lucky Lab beer a  perfect job for Ben!
