The idea behind the name Wildcard is to pursue the unknown. Wildcard Brewing Company’s owners left stability for chaos, moved to England to learn the craft of beer making, and started a business in an uncertain economy, all in pursuit of a dream. You’d call them crazy, adventurous, unpredictable....a wildcard. Our story is one of the unexpected; a place where there are no limits, where perseverance and a free spirit will turn dreams into reality.

Jeff Hansen

Co-Founder / Brewmaster

Our head brewer has an obsession with crafting delicious beer. It all started when Jeff and Jenny brewed two beers to give away as wedding favors at a brewery in San Luis Obispo where they went to college. Homebrew projects and burst bottle explosions ensued in the years after. But casual passion soon turned career. Jeff had enough of the corporate world so he took a chance and changed career paths. He put his job on notice and sent a tuition check to Brewlab at the University of Sunderland. Lucky for Jeff, Jenny is a bit of a Wildcard and was all in. The pair moved to England. Jeff studied brewing science and Jenny conducted “research” in various local pubs. Once back in the states Jeff headed straight for the most competitive brewing location, the Pacific Northwest. Jeff was able to persuade the owners of Iron Horse Brewery that he and his English brewing education were right for the job. Jeff and Jenny stayed in Washington for two years before deciding to start their own venture. With the birth of their daughter Blaire, it was time to move home to Redding and welcome their second child, the brewery.

Jenny Hansen

Co-Founder / CEO

Jenny Hansen graduated from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo with a Bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Business. In her final quarter she turned in her senior project, a business plan for an organic craft brewery in Tahoe. It seemed just a fun way to complete a daunting assignment but something about the process of putting that plan together planted an idea in her mind that she never lost sight of. Early in her career she found a passion working with small family owned farms. She saw the hard work they put in, the strong values they kept and tasted the delicious result of their efforts. Through her experience she came to recognize and value craft and artisan products. In many ways her transition into the brewing industry is a perfect fit.

Sunnie Hunt

Local Brand Ambassador

Sunnie has nearly 30 years in the hospitality business. She shines in her ability to make our taproom guests welcome. Along with her high energy and enthusiasm to support local artisans, she has a love of craft beer, which makes her passionate about adding Wildcard ales to the draft selection of local establishments. Her admiration for craft brews originated in her early 20’s while touring Germany. She remembers a time when her dad joked that she had become a beer snob, turning down a domestic “non-craft” beer from his fridge. Sunnie enjoys a simple life on five acres with dogs, goats and a donkey and is obsessed with the idea of creating useful items out of reclaimed materials around her home. Sunnie is a great addition to our team. We are happy to have her as our ambassador!

Favorite Beer Wildcard Doesn't Make: Double Dead Guy from Rogue Brewery

Things She Does Away From The Brewery: Road trips and camping with dogs and "human" friends, dreaming, creating with  reclaimed lumber, gardening and loving life!
