Woody’s Brewing Company in Redding California has qualified as one of the top micro breweries in California. Besides the exceptional craft beer, their food is an absolute winner for the entire family. Specifically one of their flagship products: tater tots, yep, once you try them you’ll be craving more. ❤
Woody’s Brewing Co. is a dream of many decades that has finally evolved from a love to consume and brew beer, to all other activities involved with it. We are a brewery that started out with three men’s passion to deliver good beer in a great atmosphere. We are believers of the do it yourself attitude and feel that mantra shines through in our high quality and artfully perfected ales. So… Do it yourself! Because it’s your actions that matter.
Our Head Brewer is Pat Wlodarczyk. Pat has had a vision since he was a young man that he would create award winning beers for people of the masses. He dreamed that someday he would be able to focus solely on brewing beer, which for the past 25 years of his life has been one of his biggest passions. Pat is one of those kinds of people that once you meet them, you are inspired by them. The joy and utmost devotion that he has to perfecting his beers is what people will be amazed about. Pat started brewing on a 1bbl (2 kegs) brewing system that he has been artfully perfecting since installing it in his “Brewhouse” in the year of 2009. Pat is an active member of the “Brewtechs”, which is a local craft brewing group. He has won numerous awards for his brewing styles and has had compliments from world renowned judges and craftsmen throughout the years. Pat knows that his beers will always evolve and he can’t wait to share it with all who accompany Woody’s.
Andrew Wlodarczyk is our Operations Manager. Since Andrew can remember, he always wanted to be a small business owner. As he grew up, he too had a dream of owning a microbrewery. Just recently (and by recently he means years ago) he found out that his uncle Pat and his father Scott both had dreamed of the same idea for many years as well. Andrew knew that he would need to get a formal education to allow him some type of professional credential. Andrew holds a B.S. degree from California State University of Chico in Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management. This degree has taught Andrew every “book theory” and “strategy” about owning your own business but has learned that the real lessons start when you put one foot in front of the next.
Our other equally important member of Woody’s is Scott Wlodarczyk. Scott has been in the beer and wine retail and distribution industry for virtually his whole professional career. He started with Lucky’s Market in Sonoma County at age 20 and learned quickly what working the graveyard shift managing the beer and liquor department was like. He decided to move up the distribution channel and received a job with Budweiser. He has since been working for large distribution companies throughout the West Coast from Budweiser out of Napa, California to Columbia Distributing out of Portland, Oregon, to finally making his way to Redding to become a Key Management Supervisor for the past 15 years at Redding Distributing. Scott has vast amounts of knowledge when it comes to successfully marketing and selling beer. Scott is also a certified beer server Cicerone, which means “the dude knows beer”.
My name is Rodney Forseth, Owner of Rods Radiators Inc and also I am the assistant wrestling coach at Simpson University. We are hosting a benefit motorcycle race, the purpose of this fundraising race is to help with travel cost for our team. At Simpson University our students are encouraged to perform community service, with this in mind we have decided to use our fundraiser to also help local youth athletic programs.
This year we have given $10,500.00 worth of tickets for local youth athletic groups to sell, they will keep all of the money they receive for those tickets. We at Simpson wrestling club will run the races and receive money from the racers entry fee and also from the gate. This is the second annual race for Simpson wrestling club, but I had also ran benefit races for the Save Our Sports foundation (1995).
