News & Happenings at Wishful Acres Farm & Brewery:

It’s magical, mysterious, and historical – we have accomplished the unbelievable!  We have managed to capture the Tears of a Unicorn in a glass!  Unicorn Tears will be on tap in our brewery this Saturday, we’re open from 11am-6pm, and if you’re in Freeport this Saturday you can also sample this beer from 10am-5pm in Freeport at the Open House event for Zealous Tattoo & Elliott Graphix at their new location (653 W. Stephenson St, Freeport).  When our friend Josh Elliott approached us about brewing a special beer for his new location Open House event, we said “YES, let’s do this!!!”   Josh and his family have purchased the old Unicorn Restaurant in Freeport, and transformed it into the new location for their screenprinting & graphics business, tattoo parlor, and home.  Nate developed this new beer recipe just for Josh, and has handcrafted this beer into a perfect balance of malt & hops – it’s a very drinkable, delicious ale, and comes with the magical properties of Unicorn Tears, as a bonus!  Try Unicorn Tears, our new ale, featuring a perfectly balanced mix of malt & hops, at our brewery – available by the glass in our tap room, and carry-out Growler Fills are also available! 

Another exciting announcement this week – our friends at Choices Natural Market in Loves Park, IL are now carrying our bottled beer for sale!  Stop in to Choices to check the selection if you’re in the Rockford area!  They’ll be pouring our beer at the store this Friday from 5-7 pm, stop in for a sample of Red 5 IPA, 3PO, or Honey Wheat Ale!  A huge, heartfelt thank you to the crew at Choices for their years of support of our farm… and now our brewery, too!
