I was born and lived in Portland (beer-mecca) most of my life where I developed my love for all things craft beer.
In the 1990s after earning a masters degree in business, I started a career in homebuilding and owned a custom home construction company for 25 years.
After 25 years of my homebuilding career I wanted to follow my passion, try my hand at brewing and make a second career of owning a brewery. It was time for a life change and so I relocated to southern Orange County with my patient and trusting wife and put the brewery into motion. We decided on the seaside town of San Clemente as the perfect home for Delahunt Brewing Company.
In 2018 I teamed up with my highly awarded brewer, Hans Johnson. Together we built Delahunt Brewing Company from the ground up.
I’ve loved bulldogs and aided animal causes in my life so it seemed fitting to include the bulldog as the brewery mascot. Guinness is my bulldog and the model for the mascot likeness.
