We are planning to (hopefully) start making beer by late 2020. Stay tuned!
Yes! We will be selling growlers and crowlers to go, along side packaged cans and bottles.
Yes. We love all animals, and when we decide to open our doors for on premise consumption, if you choose to bring your pet companions, please be responsible and respectful. Pets are only allowed to hang out in the beer garden area.
When we decide to open up the tasting room and beer garden for in house beer consumption, humans of all ages will be allowed in the tasting room and the beer garden. We will only be offering beer and non-alcoholic beverages for sale at Wondrous. Please be respectful of everyone's space.
No, we won't have our own kitchen, but we do allow offsite food in. We are steps away from a handful of awesome restaurants, so buy local and bring your food into the brewery to enjoy with a beer or two.
Who we are.
Wondrous Brewing Company, located in Emeryville, California, is a dream project of owner and brewer Wynn Whisenhunt. He grew up in the East Bay Area, and has been brewing beer professionally in Northern California for about ten years. Thanks to his friends and family at the time, he found a unique passion for brewing early in his life, started home brewing, and soon after, he found himself enthralled with working as a brewer in a commercial brewery at the age of 17. By the time he was 21, he was off to Chicago, IL and Munich, Germany to attend the World Brewing Academy and obtain his International Diploma in Brewing Technology. He spent the following years working at breweries big and small, from Lagunitas Brewing Co. in Petaluma, CA to Sante Adairius Rustic Ales in Capitola, CA. During this time he honed in on what his brewing style would be and dreamt of building a brewing facility of his own. Wondrous Brewing Company is currently in its construction phase, targeting a late 2020 opening with a focus on Lagerbiers, stainless/barrel-aged beers and hoppy beers.
We are here to create beers through passion and inspiration, to implement a culture of community, creativity and tradition. We admire positivity and stoke, while still appreciating the natural darkness the world has to offer. With brewing beer you’ll never know everything, and to us, that's a concept that keeps us pushing forward..
Following the dream.
After so many years in craft beer, I was lucky enough to find the opportunity to build our first brewery.
Wondrous selects location.
We settled on the hyper small town of Emeryville, CA which is nestled right in the middle of the San Francisco Bay Area. Formerly known for its industrious and lightweight scandalous history, Emeryville was home to only one small craft brewery in the late 80's, which only lasted a handful of years.
A lot of work was needed to be done to make this building into a functional brewery. We broke ground in late 2019
