Wolf Creek Restaurant & Brewing Company is all about making their customers happy. So, back by popular demand, Wild Angels is making a summer appearance. So too is the 15th-anniversary Renegade Rye ale, on tap for just a short time. Or go for our favorite patio-perfect drink: Wolf Creek's Sangria. This luscious mixture of juices, pineapple and red or white wine is served in a giant goblet. We're smitten with Wolf Creek's sunny (but covered!) patio area - it's the ideal spot to enjoy a little "adult refreshment!" 263-9653
