Honest (Pear Brandy)
Brown Dog Whiskey (80 and 104 proof)
Appely Doux and Pear represent 2/3 of our best sellers. We should be good on Appely Doux through the end of the season – which is 12/15/13 this year.
We will be returning to scheduled weekend hours with midweek by-appointment next week.
Our annual Wassail is on the calendar for 1/5/14 – weather permitting.
And for those keeping track, yes, we have sold out of Perry, Porissimo Traditionale and Summers End since the last update.
We are now out of bottled draft cider in the Tasting Room for 2013. We do have sixth barrels of Barn Swallow.
We’ve started several of next year’s batches, so new ciders are on their way!
The rest of our product availability remains like last week’s update.
We are getting low on our sparkling Perry. Please call ahead and reserve some of you know you’d like it for the holidays.
We have plenty of:
Summers End (for now)
Brown Dog Whiskey.
Thanks for all your patronage this year!
We are low on Barn Swallow and Sparrow Spiced Cider in bottles for the remainder of the fall season. Call ahead if you would like to reserve some.
We can offer sixth barrels of Barn Swallow for your kegerator or fall parties, though.
In the wake of a fantastic weekend, we are out of the experimental Bumbleberry port-style and also the Bunting Berry draft style.
This is an early out-date for the Bunting. Partly poor planning last year, partly great response this year. It will be back next spring.
We are now under 10 cases left of this year’s Bunting Berry Draft Cider. Come in soon, or call ahead to reserve some.
We have taken up our autumn schedule : 12-5 every day but Tuesday. Open early (10am) on Saturday.
Tuesday we rest from the craziness, so appointments -aren’t- available.
Our orchard partner, Brightonwoods, is open 9-6 daily, with a zillion kinds of apples and fresh pressed sweet cider.
Down to the last 5 cases of our experimental blackberry / raspberry port-style.
Come soon, or call ahead to reserve.
Road improvement may be progress and all, but it does present a bit of a hassle. If you’re coming to see us this summer, and traveling I-94, here are some tips.
From the North. The last I knew Highway 142 was still open if southbound from Racine or Milwaukee. That will change. Get off on Highway 11 and take it east to Kansasville. Turn left on US45 and follow that south to Highway 142. Turn right and go west 3 miles to County B. We have a sign there. Turn right and go up half a mile. We’re on the left.
From the South. Get off at Highway 158 (one past 50, which is now closed). Turn left at the end of the ramp and go under the highway. Visit our friends at Tim & Tom’s Cheese. Then follow the frontage road north. Follow the signs for the Mars Cheese Castle. Visit our friends there. Then take Highway 142 west 10 miles to County B, as above.
The other option for the north bound Zax is to go up to Highway 11 and follow the directions for the South bound Zax.
As of 7/23, we are at peak product availability. But it won’t last. So come see us soon.
With little ado, we sold out of the 2011 Perry this weekend and switched over to the 2012 expression. The 2012 was only finished last week – which seems like really good timing to me.
