Rod MacKenzie brings years of food and beverage experience and knowledge to the Gary SouthShore RailCats. With more than 20 years in the industry, Rod's background spans from small independently owned restaurants, to large hotels and casinos. He has held various positions in the industry including Bar Manager, General Manager, Beverage Manager, Restaurant Manager, Banquet Manager, Food and Beverage Manager, and Taproom Manager. 

Capitalizing on his love of great beer, Rod began his beer education journey by obtaining his Certified Beer Server certificate through the Cicerone program in 2016, where he learned a more gracious and humble approach to talking about and enjoying beer. With beer being a ballpark staple, Rod would love to chat with you about it over a hot dog and beer! 
His wife of 13 years, Melanie likes to joke how she has visited more breweries than many beer lovers, while she is not a beer drinker! More for us! We're Up!
