Today we’d like to introduce you to Kyle Boruff.
Hi Kyle, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
I have always been interested in the science of fermentation. Just by the pure nature of being able to create something out of simple ingredients really is beautiful. I started experiencing with full fermentations when I was in high school. Not knowing I pursue this as a career, I started working for a career for art and the entire time, it just never seemed like a right fit for me.
So, I began looking into changing careers and started looking into Brewery Jobs. I finally was able to land a job in a brand-new industry where I did not know too much about. From there, I started working as an intern and basically would get any job done the brewer needed of me. It was hard work but for me, it seemed the way I wanted my life to go. I loved being able to talk with people 10 to 20 years into their career brewing and they still loved it. It was the passion and love for the industry that made me never want to give up. After a few years in the industry, I finally got the opportunity to start brewing on my own. I got to help develop recipes and got to learn more on brewing development side. Once I started to get more involved, I understood why people can have such a joy in this industry.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
I do not think anything can ever be a smooth road but yes, there has been some struggles along the way. I think if you never give up and keep following your dreams, you will be fine.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
At Delahunt Brewery, we like to specialize in traditional west coast style beers while keeping up with some trending styles. We wanted to kind of go back where we could just enjoy a good beer with family and friends. Along with that, we want to focus on traditional lagers and their development process. We definitely have our hoppy beers and people do love us for those.
Any advice for finding a mentor or networking in general?
I would find someone you look up to and you can tell they are good at their job. Maybe ask them if you could buy them a beer and ask some questions. People in the beer industry are truly kind people and they will always go out of their way to help others.
