About Us

Wooden Hill was started by brothers James and Sean Ewen to share their joy of craft beer and food. First open in March, 2018, our taproom kitchen subsequently grew from a tiny corner of the bar to it’s own 300 square feet space of brand new stainless steel awesomeness. We value customer service, innovation, and creating a great place to work.
