Over a Beer: A chat with Katie Leinenkugel of Leinenkugel's
More than a century ago, the Leinenkugel family brewery was founded in Chippewa Falls by Jacob Leinenkugel. Over the years, the family has, of course, grown – and so has the brewery. But the family history and heritage remain at the forefront.
Today, a sixth generation of Leinenkugels carries on that legacy by working to get more Leinenkugel products into markets and into more people's mouths. Katie Leinenkugel is a part of that new generation. She's a Minnesota graduate and a former teacher and principal, but after going back to school for an MBA, Katie decided to join the family business.
In this new episode of "Over a Beer," a new interview series that captures the high life in and around Milwaukee, Katie Leinenkugel talks with OnMilwaukee culture editor Matt Mueller about growing up a Leinenkugel, the differences between Wisconsin and Texas, selling beer in these increasingly seltzer-obsessed times and – most importantly – her love of "The Bachelor."
The series is proudly presented by Miller Brewing Company and OnMilwaukee.
