CIDER, BEER & SPIRITS
Arts and Crafts
There’s an artistry involved in crafting the kind of flavorful beers, small-batch ciders, world-class wines, and artisan spirits that make this area a destination for adult beverage connoisseurs.
For such a small geographic footprint, we are home to two craft cideries, four craft breweries, and four wineries. If craft beer is what you’re craving, we invite you to bring your designated driver and try out Saugatuck Brewing Company, Guardian Brewing Company, Waypost Brewing Co., and the Mitten Brewing Company. While just a short drive apart, each brewery offers distinctly different flavor profiles for their craft beers, making a stop at each establishment a must-do experience for beer lovers.
Hard cider fans won’t be disappointed with a visit to Virtue Cider and Crane’s Pie Pantry Restaurant & Winery who produce flavorful ciders from hand-picked Michigan-grown apples.
To experience the region’s wine varietals, check out Crane’s, Modales Wines, Michigan Wine Co., the nearby Fenn Valley Vineyards & Winery, or its Fenn Valley Tasting Room in downtown Saugatuck. Engage in the ultimate tasting experience by taking a tour and learning about wine making and cellar practices.
For award-winning, handcrafted spirits, be sure to stop by the Coppercraft Distillery Tasting Room and the New Holland Brewing Tasting Room where you can enjoy tastings and a variety of innovative handcrafted cocktails.
