Kyle Lyons has been promoted to head of sales. Kyle has been with Otherside since its inception and has been instrumental in the growth of the brand from a ‘gypsy brewer’ to one of WA’s fastest growing craft beer brands in just three years.

Before joining in 2017, he was head of sales for WA’s most progressive, award winning coffee brands, Darkstar, personally driving the brand’s impressive evolution.
Commenting on his appointment Kyle said, “I’ve been very fortunate to be part of the Otherside team since it started. When I joined, we had just one brew under our brewing belt. Today. It’s one of WA’s fastest growing brands delivering a solid core range alongside continually evolving and experimental brew lines.
“It’s all driven by a fantastic culture and a deep commitment to quality and experimentation. I’m excited to take on the challenge of Head of Sales and continue the brand’s growth into new markets,” said Kyle.
Supporting Kyle is newly-promoted Courtney Bevilacqua. Courtney joined in 2019 to support the sales team and will now take on the role of Sales and Marketing Co-ordinator for Otherside.
