Ryan Sowards

An expert in his field, Ryan Sowards joined the team with more than 15 years of experience in the beverage industry. With past roles including sales and marketing for companies such as Red Bull and VitaminWater, it’s his passion for cultivating business that makes him as asset to the team.

Known for his ability to pull resources and teams together, Ryan was an early adopter of the Churchkey concept and finds himself passionate about the brand because of how unique it is. With no boundaries, plus a creative and exciting team, there are new challenges and new experiences to be had every day – and never a dull moment.

Ryan, who grew up in Seattle and still considers it home, now lives in Pleasanton, California. For him, the perfect Sunday is a combination of his kids and recreation– maybe the park and a hike, rounded out by dinner on the grill.

Most memorable beer experience: “Hiking to a small bar perched on a mountain in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. The beer was amazing and it was definitely worth the effort.”
