Our Story

We’ve always had a passion for the creative. Our favorite times have centered around beer. The best creative outlet for us was to craft delicious beer and create a cozy and welcoming environment in which to enjoy it.

Katie Wolf comes from a long background of fashion and jewelry design. Krystov Wolf has experience in sculpture, technology, and home brewing. Together, with the help of their home building family and the craft beer community, designed and built Wolfden Brewing Company. After 3 intense years of planning and construction, Wolfden opened on August 11th, 2018.

Haunted Tap room

While we’ve made massive improvements, our historic building was built in 1851. With such a long history, it’s not hard to believe that we’re touted as the most haunted brewery in Illinois. Our resident spirit, Jack, is known for causing mischief. People always ask us what happens… WELL…come visit us and you can experience it for yourself. Ask any one of our bartenders about their experiences!
