Wolf Creek Restaurant & Brewery Celebrates 20 Years
of Craft Brews, Great Eats & Homemade Treats
April, 2017 - Issue #150
Wolf Creek Restaurant & Brewing Co. isn't just "in" Santa Clarita; in many ways, it "is" Santa Clarita. Founded by Rob and Laina McFerren 20 years ago, the restaurant has grown alongside its hometown, first expanding its footprint through the addition of an adjacent banquet room, then opening a separate brewing and tasting facility on the Rye Canyon Loop in the Valencia Industrial Center.
And, like Santa Clarita, Wolf Creek has proven to be deeply invested in its community. The company has donated tens of thousands of dollars in cash and in-kind donations, actively participating in fundraisers like The Taste of the Town for the Child and Family Center and their own Carousel Cake campaign that benefits Carousel Ranch. Wolf Creek is also in its second year of their Community Pints campaign, donating a portion of sales to a different SCV-based non-profit organization each month.
"We have been so honored and humbled by the support our community has shown us over these last 20 years," says Laina McFerren, "and it's our absolute pleasure to contribute to the organizations that make Santa Clarita so special."
"It's wonderful to work with a local business so committed to the success of organizations like ours," says Denise Tomey Redmond, executive director of Carousel Ranch. "Wolf Creek and the McFerrens are always ready to help and generate such wonderful ideas that make a very real difference in the lives of the
children we serve. We couldn't be more grateful for them!"
Wolf Creek makes it easy for the dining public to become part of something bigger than themselves; the craft beer, unique menu, catering options and homemade desserts are a distinctive draw. "I love craft beer," says Rob McFerren, "and I've been brewing it professionally for over two decades. It's exciting to win big awards for our brews, but it's even more fun to serve a new one up to a long-time customer and see their reactions. Wolf Creek is about connections - between us and our guests, between Wolf Creek and our community, and between our guests and each other. If we can make life more delicious while helping foster and grow relationships, we've done our job and then some."
