Chief Strategy Officer, Revolution Brewing; Founder,, Chicago

Here to Make you Laugh and Think

It’s rare to have someone in a company of Revolution Brewing’s size have the same person in the chief financial and marketing roles. But Doug Veliky is not a typical employee. As seen in his writing for, he details often overlooked sides of beer in economic terms that help others in the industry and consumers gain insight.

On Instagram and TikTok, he is bringing dad jokes, levity and a good-natured poking to beer and its many absurdities. He’s also used his following and influence to raise more than $120,000 (and growing) for Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, to transform exam and testing rooms into calming and welcoming artistic spaces.
