About Us

Wooden Hill was started by brothers James and Sean Ewen to share the joy of craft beer and food. First open in March, 2018, with a capacity of 220 people, our taproom kitchen 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 together.
