Lennon is Back to Beer

Pabst Brewing Co. hires industry veteran John Lennon as its new CEO

When Pabst Brewing CEO resigned in May, the privately held Woodridge-based brewer began what turned out to be a long search for a new leader.

The search ended when the company announced the hiring of John Lennon, a 25-year veteran of the beer industry.

Lennon most recently served as president of International Beverage Holdings (InterBev) but is known in the craft beer industry as president and CEO of Pyramid Breweries. Prior to that he as president and CEO of Beck’s North America.
