November 04, 2011 - Patrick Mullin will become Director of Sales for Sly Fox Brewing Co. in January
Patrick Mullin, area sales representative for Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, will join Sly Fox Brewing Company as Director of Sales in January, his arrival essentially coinciding with the opening of the new brewery in Pottstown.

Mullin joined Sierra Nevada in January 2008, following a nearly ten-year stint as general manager for Drafting Room Exton. In a statement released exclusively to the Beer Yard and the blog Jack Curtin's Liquid Diet, he wrote:

I am extraordinarily grateful that I have had the opportunity to work for a world class organization like Sierra Nevada. They are an exemplary employer, corporate citizen, and environmental steward. I’m fortunate to work in a segment of the beer industry that allows and even encourages praise and camaraderie amongst its many diverse producers. I have always been and will remain a dedicated consumer and strong vocal supporter of Sierra Nevada.

My new position at Sly Fox will allow me to further my personal development by experiencing the challenges of directing the growth of a promising, smaller producer. I’ve been a fan of Brian O’Reilly’s beers since his time at New Road and the Giannopoulos family has treated me wonderfully since my early days managing The Drafting Room. I look forward to helping them grow into their new facility.

Mullin's resignation is effective Nov. 18. After that, he will take off the rest of the year before starting at Sly Fox.--JACK CURTIN
