What's on tap...

Because we use local fruit and spices, our meads and ciders change regularly with the seasons (or faster than that if we're feeling creative). Fermenting small batches for the taproom also means that we can try some cool things with small farmers - maybe a small batch of wild foraged pears, or hoop house ginger grown here in Ann Arbor. All of our meads and ciders are naturally gluten free. Keep an eye on our list below to see what we're serving up for you at the moment...
