We're in the news! Also: Winter Wonderland & Beer Chili Day news from Wishful Acres Farm & Brewery!

Hey, hey, THANKS SO MUCH!! We made the "Top 12 Bucket List Restaurants to Visit in the State of Illinois in 2019"! (Side note: we're a brewery, not a restaurant, but we do serve some snack foods!) You can read the news article here: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/…/bucket-list-restaurants-…/

The weather for this upcoming weekend is looking rather frightful, with a winter storm expected on Friday night.  We'll still be open, but if you decide not to drive out during the snowstorm on Friday, consider coming out Saturday & Sunday because our farm is absolutely beautiful after a snowstorm!  Need proof?
