Special Devils Night Release Party

Wednesday, October 30th 5pm - 10pm

We're opening up on Wednesday, October 30th for a very special Devil's Night event you won't want to miss.

We will be showing The Rocky Horror Pictures Show at 8pm. And releasing some new meads that will only be available at the meadery.


The Smoked Pumpkin Caper 
Smoked pumpkin, squash, and sweet potato, smoked honey, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spices, aged in a Goose Island Bourbon County Stout barrel
15% ABV 
$19.99 for a 375ml (NO BOTTLE LIMIT)


 
Devil's Juice
Orange blossom honey, smoked "mutt" honey, pineapple juice, and a blend of 3 hot peppers. Only 6 gallons made. Limit 1 per customer.



This is...

Dwarf Invasion

This mead is the Non-Imperial version of our Imperial Funky Monky. A smaller mead, but big on flavor. Tart Balaton cherries, honey, and Styrian Golding hops.

6% ABV
Lightly carbonated
500ml bottles.

The first batch is only 60 bbls. We're hoping to make more very soon.
Limited quantities will be shipped to our distributors soon after you receive this newsletter. Ask your favorite shop-keep to pick some up.

Expected release: Mid October (see Clubhouse BFD Event below)



Eye Ball

 

Add a descriptionInspired by a ginger and rye whiskey highball. This mead measures in at about 17% ABV. We used fresh peeled ginger and raw Michigan wildflower honey to ferment this mead, and then aged it in rye whiskey barrels.

 

This is the mad creation of Ian Radogost-Givens, meadmaker extroirdinaire and partner at B. Netkar. Keep an eye out for his creations. He will soon be leading up our experiMental B-Sides series, and our barrel series.

 

3 barrels made. This will only be available at the taproom.

 

Release date: Mid-November

 

 

A Price Drop is Coming!!

Last year, Michigan was hit with some very early thaws that ended up destroying most of the apple and cherry crop. So, to acquire enough ingredients, we had to pay top dollar to keep bringing you Zombie Killer. As a result, prices for Zombie Killer went up about $1 per bottle. This years crop was excellent, so prices are back to normal. We're very pleased to announce (as promised) that prices are coming back down. 

Also, as a result of our recent expansion we're purchasing more ingredients and raw materials than ever, so our costs have been dropping. Also, doing larger batches takes nearly the same amount of time as smaller ones, so our labor costs per bottle are way down. So, we've decided to pass the savings on to you and extend the price drop across the entire draft mead product line. This includes Zombie Killer, Black Fang, and Necromangocon (as well as future releases in this line). Our traditional meads, barrel series, and B-Sides continue to be very expensive to make, so prices on those will not change.

You can expect these new prices to start to go into effect around the beginning of November, but each market will vary. This will also impact keg prices. So ask your favorite bar to pick up some of our delicious craft meads. This in NO way means that we're using cheaper ingredients. We will continue to source only the finest ingredients available.
