Upland Brewing Co. Announces Bob Kenney As Vice President Of Sales


Press Release:

(Bloomington, IN) – Upland Brewing Company is pleased to announce Bob Kenney as our Vice President of Sales. Most recently Bob was the Senior Director of Anheuser-Busch INBEV’s sales team responsible for selling Goose Island’s specialty, Belgian-inspired beers, such as Sophie, Matilda and Lolita, on a national basis. Previously, Bob served as Vice President of Sales at Goose Island Brewing Company, where he built and led a sales team that doubled sales to 150,000 BBLs in a short number of years.

Doug Dayhoff, Upland’s President, said, “Bob’s experience and acumen are a perfect pairing with Upland. We aim to build strong distributor relationships throughout the Midwest to capitalize on the momentum of our core beers like Dragonfly, Champagne Velvet, Campside and Teddy Bear Kisses. We have a terrific sales team, and Bob’s leadership and training will make us even better.”

Jon Leetz, President of Indiana Beverage, remarked, “Our Upland sales have doubled in two years, and this hire demonstrates their on-going investment in great leadership to support their great beers. We’ve worked with Bob for a long time, and think the world of him.”

Upland recently completed an expansion to its production brewery cellar, which doubled its capacity to 75,000 BBLs. The company is also finalizing plans to expand its original brewery, which now focuses exclusively on artisan Belgian-style sour ales. In the last year alone, Upland has introduced 16 new beers, including new canned and bottled beers. In the coming year fans can expect more innovation and artisanship from the brewing team and a fifth Tap House featuring locally sourced foods and their signature beers.
