BACKLIT: Kevin DeLange and Michelle Reding


Kevin DeLange and Michelle Reding are the owners and founders of Dry Dock Brewing, Aurora’s first brewery, which was founded in 2005. As well as being one of the co-founders of the brewery, DeLange also sponsors the Dry Dock hockey team, for which he plays goalie. He says that over the 13 years he has been playing, he has gained quite a lot of flexibility. Reding, despite being a co-founder of the brewery, doesn’t discriminate against wine. She still has a love for the grape and takes girls trips to wine country in California.  Portrait by Philip B. Poston/Sentinel
