Rhonda Kallman has over 35 years experience in the alcohol beverage industry and is considered one of America’s beverage industry thought leaders. Kallman was instrumental in paving the way for craft beer acceptance by making it available throughout the US while educating consumers on American craft beer superiority. In addition, as the pioneering women in the beer industry, she was able to lead the way for other women to earn the respect and credibility they deserve.


In 1984, she co-founded The Boston Beer Company (NYSE:SAM), now the most successful and influential craft beer company in the US. Ms. Kallman served as EVP, overseeing sales & marketing as well as the company’s human capital. Rhonda built the most admired sales organization in the industry. She was a member of BBC’s management committee, executive committee and board of directors. In addition, She innovated many of the company’s most successful styles and brands.


As a testament to her impact, she was honored by The Institute for Brewing Studies with its Recognition Award for being the “Pioneering Woman in the Beer Industry”.   In 1995 The Boston Beer Company’s IPO, led by Goldman Sachs, went public with a two-tranche offering that included first consumers of Samuel Adams and then the public  and investment communities. It was highly regarded as one of the most exciting IPOs in the consumer products industry.


In 2001, she founded New Century Brewing Co., to produce and market innovative American craft beer styles. After losing a well-publicized battle with the FDA over adding trace amounts of caffeine to beer, New Century Brewing closed in 2011. In 2012, Ms. Kallman founded Boston Harbor Distillery, creating proprietary craft spirits that integrate rich history, distinctive experiences and beverage culture into each bottle
it produces. Housed in a pre-Civil War era building overlooking Boston Harbor, this urban distillery serves as both a production facility and an event space, tasting room and mercantile. BHD’s award winning innovative Spirit of Boston, distilled from Sam Adams beer varieties; grain-to-glass Putnam New England Whiskey; Lawley’s Small Batch Rum and craft disruptors, Maple Cream & Coffee Liqueur are being extremely
well, all with repeat sales and customers.

A few of her distinctive awards and recognitions include being featured as “INC. Magazine’s “25 Entrepreneurs We Love (and what makes them great) along with other luminaries like Jeff Bezos, Steve Jobs, Larry Page/Sergey Brin. She’s been recognized as the Top 10 innovators in the beer industry by Draft Magazine and is the recipient of the 2011 Maverick Award. Ms. Kallman had the esteemed distinction of representing the
City of Boston during 2001 Winter Olympic Games relay, she was the featured subject in a movie called “Beer Wars” and was included in books titled “Inspirational Women of Boston” and “Quench Your Own Thirst”.
