Ryan Wagner (he/him) is a proud native of the Baltimore area, having grown up in Baltimore City and attending high school in Harford County. After receiving a degree in Musical Theatre from Frostburg State University, Ryan spent the first part of his professional life as a stage actor in New York City performing in hundreds of shows both in New York and around the country. Following a stint on a Broadway National Tour, Ryan spent a year hosting the MLB Fan Cave, a digital and social media project for Major League Baseball. That experience was followed immediately by a return to Baltimore, where Ryan was hired in 2012 to be the next voice of Oriole Park at Camden Yards, a position he held through the 2020 season. Ryan lives in Hampden with his wife, Amy, and their two pets. One of the first people hired at the Guinness Open Gate Brewery in Baltimore County, Ryan serves as the brewery’s National Ambassador, supporting the growth of the Open Gate Brewery and all Guinness initiatives nationwide in a variety of ways - always working from our pillars of Quality, Integrity, and Passion. His main areas of focus are developing training and education programming for internal staff and consumers, building on and celebrating our culture and heritage, acting as spokesperson for media and PR requests, leading our efforts in regard to beer quality both within the brewery and at retail, focusing on providing memorable and engaging industry hospitality, assisting with product commercialization and sales, and acting in a support role across various other areas. At the heart of it all is a passionate and energetic desire to share the spirit of Guinness with friends new and old, with his love for laughter and storytelling guiding the way.
