Smart A** Returns, Food Truck Grill Out Coming Up & more Brew & Farm News!

What happens when a witty person crosses the line?  They become a Smart A**!  Smart A**, our Belgian Wit style of beer, is back on tap starting this weekend. A full sized batch, we expect this beer to be around for at least a few weeks.  Brewed with barley & wheat, with plenty of sweet orange peel & coriander, this beer is mild, fruity, and delicious!

Sunday, May 20, from 12-5 pm will be our first Food Truck Sunday of the season!  We'll have Benchwarmers here with their food truck parked in our Beer Garden, and they'll be grilling & frying it up!  Beer Brats (boiled in Wishful Acres beer), Hamburgers, Pork Chop Sandwiches, French Fries, and Fried Cheese Curds!!!

Farm Members - your first CSA organic vegetable share pickup is just a month away!  Don't forget to turn in any remaining balance due on your season membership by June 1.
