Charlie and Kristen Rilling are family and part owners of the business, share similar passions, and have helped bring this concept to life. 




Wild Woods Brewery opened in September 2012 with a 2 barrel nanobrewery, and in early 2014 we expanded to a 7 barrel brewhouse. We serve most of our handcrafted beer in the tap room and also have kegs out in local bars and restaurants.

Jake and Erin Evans are brewery owners. Jake’s background is in electrical engineering and Erin’s is in nursing. They both grew up in Wisconsin and share a love not only for craft beer, but for the outdoors. They have hiked and camped their whole lives, and conceived this idea of nature inspired beer while sitting around a campfire in Crested Butte, Colorado. They have lived in Boulder for 10 years now and perfected these recipes on an all-grain professional brewing system in their basement for 5 years before opening Wild Woods in September 2012.
