Friendly Beasts Cider- formed from a passion for crisp tasting cider. We started making cider after seeing how limited the range of flavors and variety of ciders was here in the midwest. Frustrated with the exclusively sweet and syrupy options available on store shelves, we decided to try our hand and see what other flavors we could create. Our ciders are always fermented and blended right here in Bloomington, Indiana. All of our juice is pressed in Indiana from Indiana apples grown on a family orchard, some of it we even press ourselves. While we specialize in blending ciders on the drier end of the spectrum, we have a variety of recipes to satisfy every taste. We use traditional cider-making methods and 100% natural ingredients; we make cider the way it was meant to be made. Come along with us on our cider journey— we're excited to share the next glass with you!
Misbeehaven’ Meads- We make great mead, be it traditional or experimental. We release annually around 48 different meads, which explore different fruits and varietal honeys. Many of our meads are unconventional, featuring unusual ingredients and processes. We age lots of mead on wood or in barrels.

|Gale's Hard Cider- It was made in barrels, from craggy old cider apples, sold and drunk quickly. This tradition has passed to the third generation of his family. Today, the craggy old cider apples of yesteryear still grow in the Midwest. They are harvested, artfully blended, then ground and pressed. The cider is then put into old barrels, fermented and aged, crafting a strong, dry cider the old Celts would have been proud of.||Extra-aulde Galeâ€™s Scrumpy Cider “Chieftan’s Blend- Long-aged blend of cider apples, wild fermented like an “aulde scrumpy.” Tangy yeast flavors with strong crabapple edges- earthy & oaky, fizzy!|

McClures Orchard- In 2009, we began a new venture...we became a farm winery, producing hard ciders and wines from the fruits and vegetables grown on site. Our first bottles were placed on the shelves in September of 2010; and, we have been busy trying to bring more varieties to folks ever since. We will be busy this spring planting many more crops with which to someday press and produce delicious beverages! This new venture is our dream; and, we would love to share it with you (in a tasting glass or by the bottle).
Kekionga Cider Company- It started with two longtime friends, a cousin’s basket press, and a brother’s apple tree. In cliché terms, the rest is history. Tyler Butcher and Logan Barger had always wanted to start their own company within the alcohol industry, and after that first pressing of apples, knew what they wanted to do. Teaming up with another friend, Britton Falkenstern, and Don and Greg Goeglein, owners of Goeglein Catering, Kekionga Cider Company became a reality. Goeglein Mill had recently been re-purchased by the Goeglein’s, as it had been out of the family for many years. Construction began shortly after the purchase to bring the building back to its historic form. Kekionga Cider Company has been able to find its home at the mill and has started to produce great tasting and easy drinking hard cider for its northeast Indiana community. Our company works with a single family owned orchard in northwest Michigan, ensuring that only the best apples go into making our hard cider. Come visit the Mill and enjoy a glass, or three, of Fort Wayne’s original and only hard cider.

It pairs perfectly with good jokes, friends, and celebrations of all sorts.||Courtaud- A boldly flavored cider named for the leader of the 15th Century 'Wolves of Paris' that ate dozens of people before being hunted down in front of the Cathedral of Notre Dame. Its rich color and earthy flavors come from aging on French oak chips and cacao nibs and its smooth finish from a hint of vanilla.||Arkanpaw- Originally named The Arkansas Panther Paw (Panther Paw for short), this is a single-varietal cider made using only the Arkansas Black cultivar. These apples are bitter and meaty, giving the cider a full bodied flavor that we've balanced with just a touch of sweetness. The Panther Paw is sure to tickle all of your taste buds!|
Anderson's Vineyard and Winery- On the southernmost tip of Lake Michigan, just south of the largest sand dunes in the Midwest, lies a ridge formed thousands of years ago by the glaciers as they crept south during the three great Ice Ages that covered the midwestern area and created the Great Lakes. This ridge is called the Valparaiso Moraine. It is the highest point in northwest Indiana, and home to one of Indiana's best kept secrets, Anderson's Vineyard and Winery. In 1993 the Orchard and Marketing operation was taken over by David Lundstrom and family. The vision that the Lundstrom family had was to take the history of fruit production and couple to it a value added operation and in 1994 the first Estate Winery in Indiana north of Indianapolis was established. Anderson's Winery specializes in light fruity wines produced from fruit and grapes grown in the Midwest area. Today the orchard has been replaced by Vineyards and in 2003 our first Estate Bottled wines were released.

Buck Creek Winery- Buck Creek Winery's roots are in Durm Vineyards, which was established in 1991 by Jeff and Kelly Durm. They purchased the land and Jeff, with the help of family and friends, broke ground – and the vineyard was started. 1500 vines were planted the first year. Bud break came each spring after pruning. Spraying, cluster thinning, and harvest followed each year. More vines were planted, with 13 varieties in all. Wine was made for table use. The children continued to grow. Jeff coached football in Franklin Township and for Nativity every fall while he and Kelly juggled their full-time jobs with the Marion County Sheriff’s Department. Jeff retired from the Sheriff’s department in 2004. Construction started on the winery in Fall 2005. On Thursday, April 27, 2006, “The Dream” was realized – we were in business.

Huber's Orchard, Winery and Vineyards- When in 1843, Simon Huber settled this Southern Indiana farm, he brought with him from Baden-Baden, Germany his years of experience in fruit growing and wine making.

In the vineyards, 18 different varieties of grapes are grown for the production of our varietals and blended wines. As Indiana's largest wine-grape producer, our vineyards will produce nearly 400,000 pounds of grapes per year under normal weather conditions.

Within our cellar, the old world art of winemaking combines with the most modern equipment and technology to manifest our magnificent vintages.

Madison County Winery- is a locally owned and operated winery in Madison County, Indiana. We have a small wine making facility/farm located in Markleville, Indiana and a tasting room in downtown Pendleton, Indiana. It all started in 2008. Eric liked to make his own beer and wine. So, his friends were asking if he would sell them some of his wine. Of course, he couldn't. He had his parents try his wine. Both, knew he was on to something. They agreed to back him in a new venture of Wine Making. In April of 2010 we moved the tasting room to downtown Pendleton, In. After a year we expanded into the next shop. We started out with Ruby Red Wines and Amber Red Wines (now retired). Added Hard Cider and Hard Cider with Cinnamon and Mead (Honey Wine). We now have Blackberry Wine, Chocolate and Vanilla Wines, Cayuga White, Seyval and Cabernet Franc. Our newest additions are Peach, Hard Lemonaide, Not So Innocent OJ and Hard Iced Tea.

|Goldensap- 9.1%abv; apple dominates the nose, this cider is dry and bitter to the palate. We took juice from only two varieties of apples and fermented them until the yeast expired.

It is a marriage of apples and jalapeño peppers, we left the seeds out during fermentation to keep the heat down making this cider twice the fiesta, but only half the heat.||Bunny #13- 9%abv; apples and hops dominate the nose, we took some hops and added it to the juice prior to fermentation for this ots wine. It is a pleasant blend of fruity, sweet apples with earthy hops. Crisp and refreshing, it is all hopped up!||[M]apfelwein- 11%abv; apples and maple syrup fill the nose, this ots wine is made in the old German tradition by fermenting the cider with maple syrup, harvested from trees just down the road. Apple dominates the wine with maple syrup undertones throughout the drink.|
|Grandpa's- 12% abv; apples and bourbon dominate the nose of this cider. We took a bold, full-flavor cider and filled used bourbon barrels. The cider cider had a sit in the barrels for a few months to create a drink worthy of Grandpa's name.||Celebration- 11%abv; the nose of this champagne-style cider is complete and full of apple sweetness. It is bottle-conditioned, naturally carbonated, almost effervescent; thus, bringing out a clean, crisp apple taste from start to finish. Enjoy a bottle at any celebration or for Sunday morning mimosas.||Fireball- apple fills the nose accompanied with hints of candied cinnamon.
