Wooden Hill Brewing Co. in Edina is expanding its event area. The additions include an enlarged kitchen and taproom that can hold more than 100 people. It will complement the brewery’s semiprivate lounge that seats 40 and private ballroom that seats 110. The brewery caters events from the taproom’s menu.
“We are adding 1,340 square feet to our existing taproom, and our new kitchen will be almost five times larger than our current kitchen,” says Brittany Violet, Wooden Hill’s director of events. “Our private event space will become larger and even have its own private patio. We cannot wait to continue sharing the joy of craft [brewing] with our community in a larger capacity.”
The brewery’s name, “Wooden Hill,” comes from family traditions of the brewery’s co-owner and head brewer, James Ewen. “Up the wooden hill” was the phrase his grandfather used when it was time for him and his brother to go upstairs to bed.
