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...

Season One Spring Gin w/A2DC
Notes: Made with Ann Arbor Distilling's spent Spring Gin botanicals. Tasting notes: woodsy, herbal, dapper
Notes: Dry hopped with Michigan-grown Cascade and Crystal hops. Tasting notes: tangerine, pine, bright
Notes: Mildly back-sweetened to emphasize the honey taste and aroma, this mead falls in the semi-dry category. Tasting notes: citrus, mineral, playful
Notes: Made with wildflower honey and a Michigan apple cider blend - highlights the apples' tannins and acidity. Tasting notes: golden, crisp, sociable
Notes: Rhubarb gives a dry, mineral-forward tartness. A little earthiness while still thirst-quenching
Notes: Made with 90 pounds of hand-picked Tahsis black currants. Moderate back-sweetening complements the tart spicy berries.
Notes: Red apple flavor that balances the mild acidity. Light tannin notes
Pear Ginger Cider
Notes: Michigan apples and pears fermented together with fresh ginger root. Has a little zip to it!

Notes: Regular and decaf drip coffee from our neighbors at Mighty Good
Notes: A selection of black, green and herbal teas from local Arbor Teas
Lemon Thyme Mead
Notes: Rotating small batch. Variant on our Standard made with Michigan lemon thyme. Bright, citrus, balanced sweetness
Notes: MI cider blend that contributes tannins and an acidic backbone. A little funk from warmer fermentation temps and mild nutrient levels.
