Wolves And People Farmhouse Brewery

30203 NE Benjamin Road
Newberg, OR 97132


Christian was raised on Springbrook Farm, the home of Wolves & People. After his first (awful) home brew encouraged a string of halfway drinkable ones, he started dreaming about building this brewery during his freshman year. After a year researching ancient brewing techniques in Europe & West Africa in 1996-7 on a crazy grant program he worked in wineries, breweries, a barrel cooperage, and later as a travel and beer writer based in New York City for nine years, publishing a lot of articles (mostly on beer) in the NYT, Food+Wine, GQ, Men's Journal, and National Geographic Adventure. He's a co-inventor of a stainless steel beer growler (The Bräuler), cofounder and Editorial Director of Weekly Pint (a beer newsletter), coauthor of a cookbook, BEER BITES (Chronicle Books, 2015), and author of THE GREAT AMERICAN ALE TRAIL (Running Press, 2016).
