It is hard to believe that I have been at this beer company for 16 years as I have never lasted at any job more than 5 years. FINNEGANS started as an idea of how a beer company could make the world a better place.

Hello Beer Lovers,
I have lived and loved working in the beer business for the past 32 years. I love selling beer, I have had and continue to have more than my share of fun experiences because of the people and the close relationships formed in this business, and I have enjoyed many different beer styles over that time of great change in the beer industry. I like to explore and sample new entries as they come into the market. What am I looking for you might ask? Sometimes I wonder myself what drives me to sample so many new things. Is it the thrill… Read more
