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.  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 outdoor beer garden!  We offer Cheese & Cracker Plates  and German Soft Pretzel Plates 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.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

1. Do you offer food?

We offer a small selection of snack foods all the time - Our Cheese & Cracker Plate features all local-made cheeses, accompanied by a medley of crackers.  Our German-style Soft Pretzel Plate is served warm with a duo of dipping mustards.  We also offer a selection of local-made potato chips, pretzels, and cheese popcorn. 

(These are the only foods we offer, except during our special food days! Watch our Facebook page & our email newsletter, we occasionally run food events such as Beer Bratwurst Grill Outs, Beer Chili Days, Pizza Events, and more, including summer food trucks!)

2. Can I bring in my dog?

Sorry, because our brewery has an on-site licensed kitchen, we cannot allow dogs inside the brewery.  However, dogs are welcome on leashes in our outdoor beer garden during the warmer months.

3. Are children welcome at the brewery with their parents?

Absolutely! We are a family friendly brewery, and children enjoy our homemade root beer.  (Please keep your children with you at all times.)

4. Do you serve drinks other than your beer, like wine?

Sorry, we only serve the beer (and homemade root beer) that we make here on site.  Our liquor license does not allow for wine or spirits.  We also do not allow carry-in of wine or other drinks.
