We are Brian and Sarah McDaniel of Wooden Ale in Austin, Texas. Shaping wood and making beer (sometimes simultaneously) is what we love to do. We spend almost every weekend scavenging the woods, thrift stores, and garage sales to find wood we can use to make furniture, jewelry, and other works of art. This hunt is often a family affair and is most often accompanied by homebrews.
Upcycling and buying local are central to our belief system. Nothing pleases us more than to save an old chair from the trash yard or reclaiming driftwood that is suddenly seen when the greenbelt dries up in the winter.
Feel free to contact us about special orders. Thanks for stopping by our shop, we hope you enjoy our art as much as we enjoy making it!
