What would you like to see us brew? Remember all of our berries are locally sourced and hand-picked by humans!! Our honey is locally sourced and produced by hard working bees! It is brewed in the basement of the former Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Greenland, MI, surrounded by Maple Grove Cemetery. Holy Spirits is what we produce from our well water with the help of the ancestors and John, the brewer.
Mead is also the traditional wedding beverage, hence the term "honeymoon". Here is a link describing that history. Please remember us when planning any type of special occasion that requires a local, sustainable, and delicious beverage to go with it. http://tugwellcreekfarm.com/mead-and-weddings/
