Wild Wolf Brewing Company

About Us

About Us

In November of 2011, Mary Wolf, and her son Danny, renovated a 100 year old Nelson County schoolhouse into a restaurant, built an adjacent brewery, and began the story of Wild Wolf Brewing Company. Mary, a business-savvy entrepreneur, takes care of the business, and Danny, a formally educated Brewmaster, oversees production of an ever-expanding portfolio of award-winning ales and lagers. We now distribute cans, and kegs throughout the entire state of Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia. Our current portfolio includes six year-round beers, over a dozen rotating and seasonal beers, and occasional single-batch creations.

Our Story

We are located in the heart of Virginia’s Brew Ridge Trail, on Nelson County’s scenic Rt. 151, minutes from hiking trails, orchards, wineries, distilleries, and lodging. We’re very proud of our beautiful setting in little Nellysford, Virginia. Our dog-friendly shaded biergarten, with koi pond and fountain, is the perfect place to enjoy pints and lunch (weather permitting). Weather not so great? Check out the four-season pavilion.

July Hop Picking

Our Hop Garden is an important part of our Brewery. We are committed to brewing the best beer possible and that starts with solid ingredients. We harvest hops a few times a year. Prime harvest time is late July to end of August depending on a variety of factors. Its a tedious process and important that you don’t pick the hops too early
