Our expansion…a brewery??
The expansion of Red Wagon Farm to include Red Wagon Baked Goods, Red Wagon Scoops has been a glimmer in Eric’s eye for years. The craziness that came about in 2020 with the pandemic showed us that our customers are interested in seeing more and doing more on the farm, and the pieces somehow fell into place to make these expansion elements a possibility. It seemed like destiny calling, so we answered.
A childhood friend of Eric’s connected our interest in opening a brewery to friends who have been dreaming of opening their own brewery, one of which grew up in Columbia Station and was Eric’s chemistry class lab partner. After meeting/reconnecting with these ladies, a partnership of complementing skills, abilities, and backgrounds was formed. Kellie Rubesne and Ann Zofchak bring a wealth of brewing knowledge and passion for craft beer with them, and the opportunity to create their Four Paws Brewing dream alongside the Red Wagon Brewing turned out to be a perfect fit. The Four Paws brand brings a passion for creating unusual styles with unexpected ingredients, both a beautiful compliment to our tradition and full spectrum of brewing for Ann, our Head Brewer.
Making beer on the farm
The future of the farm is going to be really exciting, with the Red Wagon bakery expansion, Red Wagon Scoops being introduced to our market customers earlier in the season and the brewery coming as soon as equipment and licenses are in place. We are so excited to usher Red Wagon Brewing into the world, and invite you to taste the deliciousness of farm-brewed beverages. It’s a new chapter for Red Wagon, expanding our horizons while staying true to our roots. We always want to bring homegrown, fresh, traditional, delicious products…on the farm.
