CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Dick Leinenkugel will retire at the end of 2022, after serving eight years as president of the Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company, according to a news release.

The 64-year-old will hand the reins to his nephew, sixth-generation Leinenkugel Tony Bugher.

The release says Bugher joined Molson Coors in 2014 and has held several roles in the company. 

Dick Leinenkugel has been president of the brewery since October 2014 and spent the majority of his career with the brewery, starting in 1987 as a sales representative based in Chicago. 

“I am just thrilled that another descendent of Jacob Leinenkugel will now lead our brewery,” Dick Leinenkugel said. “The more family members we can have be part of this business, the better. Working with the Molson and Coors families has been a blessing, especially when it comes to understanding the value of heritage in a business.”
