4679 N. Flansburg Rd, Lena, IL, 61048 

Wishful Acres Farm & Brewery features a small on-site tap room/bar, located inside a barn on our farm!  Here, you can sit down for a pint or sampler of our artisan craft beers, homemade root beer, browse our selection of merchandise, and purchase some beer to go in growlers and bottles.  


Our taproom features a relaxed, low-key, friendly atmosphere in a beautiful country location, with no televisions - just friends, conversation, cards, board games, and great beer!  During the warmer months, you can enjoy our large outdoor beer garden seating area!  New in the fall of 2020 is our Greenhouse Tent - a new & unique Greenhouse farm seating option that includes a heated space during the colder months (weather permitting), and fans to cool in the warmer months. 


We offer Grab & Go snack items such as Cheese & Cracker Plates, Deli Trays, local-made potato chips and cheese popcorn for munching while you enjoy drinking our homemade craft beers & homemade root beer!  We're always brewing something new - to be among the first to know what is on tap each week, please sign up for our weekly email newsletter.
