Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout beer release THIS weekend! Plus more news from Wishful Acres!

Our strongest beer yet - at 13.5% ABV, starting this Friday! Join us Memorial Day weekend as we release our brand new hand crafted beer, "The Emperor", a Russian Imperial Stout that we aged with bourbon & oak! This beer is thick, black, and strong, with flavors of roasted malts, oak, and molasses. At 13.5 % alcohol, this one is full of strong flavors, and not for the faint of heart!  We made a full sized batch, so there is plenty to go around, and plenty available for carry-out.... so be sure to bring your growler jugs in to take some home!


Also mark your calendars for Father's Day, Sunday June 17, 12-5 pm - we're featuring an Ultimate Grill Out & Fry Up with a Food Truck! Beer brats, Grilled Hamburgers & Cheeseburgers, Grilled Butterfly Pork Chop Sandwiches, French Fries, and Fried Wisconsin Cheese Curds! Treat dad to a day at Wishful Acres!
