About Us:

Dave Benfield, the grand poo-bah of DuClaw Brewing Company, began home brewing beer while in college, presumably for the only reason that guys in college do anything: to meet girls. What originally began as a way for Dave and his friends to supply themselves with beer and female admirers, soon evolved into something more.

Upon graduating, Dave accepted a position in his family's business, but continued to hone his ninja-like brewing skills in secret. Despite his best efforts to brew on the down-low, he couldn't hide his obsession from his parents: he was always tired, smelled of spent grain, and mumbled incessantly about "carboys" and "original gravities" in his sleep. Instead of staging an intervention, his parents asked if he was thinking about a career change. "Uhhhhh...yep," he answered hesitantly, and once he convinced his mother to stop crying and his father to untie the noose and climb down from the stool, his golden retriever-like enthusiasm and Steve Jobsian vision won them over.
