About the Beer:
A long time ago on a continent far, far away, Owner Mike Chiltern discovered the role beer plays in the fabric of a community while studying abroad in Zimbabwe, Africa, in the spring of 1998. However, he first began his journey into brewing with a visit to the Brooklyn Kitchen homebrew shop in 2012. Mike has always had a deep appreciation for well-crafted flavorful beer, especially India Pale Ales and he decided he would try his hand at making one. It seemed like the perfect hobby for a new father often stuck in the apartment with his newborn son. His first beer turned out exceptional and Mike was hooked! Soon after, he began growing his own hops and branching out from IPA’s to many other beer styles. Entering numerous homebrew competitions, he had won medals in 12 of 14 by 2018, including the National Homebrew Competition. Inspired by visits to breweries around the world, recalling moments from his time spent in Zimbabwe, Mike’s vision of building a microbrewery in his hometown took form. In 2017 he set out to find a suitable location. After much hard work, pitfalls, and hurdles Wolf & Warrior Brewing Company opened its doors in January 2019. The brewery is named after his two sons Vuk & Branko. Mike’s wife Jelena is from Belgrade, Serbia and the boys’ names literally translate from Serbian to English as: Wolf & Warrior.
