News & Happenings at Wishful Acres Farm & Brewery:
We have a new beer on tap! Try Red Five, our new Red I.P.A. brewed with 5 hop additions! Red Five features the hoppy, bitter flavor of an IPA, balanced out with plenty of citrus-flavored hops! A noseful of grapefruit, and the wham of hops - "This is Red 5, I'm going in"! 8.8% ABV, 75 IBU.
Now Open, Saturdays 11am-6pm - visit our web site for location, directions, and more: www.WishfulAcresFarm.com.
