Asia Brand Ambassador, Alltech Lexington Brewing & Distilling Company
With a mother from Kentucky and a father from China, Patrick Lin has spent equal amounts of his life in both places. Starting off as a bartender in Cincinnati, Lin moved to China in 1999, where he began his career working for the American Chamber of Commerce in Beijing for five years and then as head of Asia sales for HAVI Logistics for another six years. He then found his true calling in life with the craft beer and bourbon industry by representing Alltech Lexington Brewing & Distilling Company in Asia for the last three years. He has helped grow the company’s reach to more than 200 bars and restaurants in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Chengdu and Taiwan.
