2018 Brewmaster Announced!

Tina Rulewicz
Founders Brewing Co.

We are happy to announce that Tina Rulewicz will be joining us for our Brewmaster Symposium on Wednesday, May 16.

Founders Brewing Co. has grown around the simple philosophy: “We don’t brew beer for the masses. Instead, our beers are crafted for the chosen few, a small cadre of renegades and rebels who enjoy a beer that pushes the limits of what is commonly accepted as taste. In short, we make beer for people like us.”

Founders Brewing Co. has evolved into one of the most recognized breweries in the United States. They have been ranked in the top breweries in the world by Ratebeer.com for the last five years and have had several beers listed in the top 100 beers of the world on Beeradvocate.com. In addition, they have won six World Beer Cup medals, four European Beer Star medals and three Great American Beer Festival medals – 13 medals total across eight different beers.

As market manager for Founders Brewing Co., Tina oversees Washington, Northern Idaho and Montana.  She’s spent the last 15 years working in the sales and marketing arena.  Prior to becoming immersed in the craft beer scene while managing a craft beer, Irish and music pub, she was a ski instructor, published author, and a softball and competitive swimming coach. Her passion quickly evolved into a long-standing career.  After managing the restaurant, Tina worked for a couple of breweries in the Northeast before joining the Founders team three years ago.  Last year, she relocated across the country to be a part of Founders’ Northwest market expansion. 

Her passions include: her family, Founders, motorcycle riding, golf, skiing, reading, animals, and watching sports.  Let’s go Mets….next year.
