Left Foot Charley owns no palatial estate. Our energy is focused on fermenting, aging, and bottling wine. Hard Apple Cider is an old tradition in America. We are constantly exploring the roots of this beverage in an attempt to create new and wonderful beverages from the most symbolic of fruits. Left Foot Charley Hard Cider is produce from 100% Apples. We look for heirloom varieties and those that have high acid and thick, tannic skins to produce crisp and refreshing styles of cider. The alcohol ranges from 5.5%-7% depending on the vintage, variety and style. Below is an example of what is currently on tap. This changes frequently as all ciders are produced in small batches and only served on draught at the winery.
Cellarmen’s- a microbrewery with a tasting room, retail space and production on-site. Sourcing their honey, hops, apples and other ingredients from local suppliers, the cider makers create all kinds of cider, beer and mead.

B Nektar Meadery- makes mead, ciders, and beers that extend beyond the traditional styles. With so many varieties of honey, how could we not? We let our imaginations guide us. B. Nektar Meadery was founded in 2006 by Brad and Kerri Dahlhofer, with the help of their good friend Paul Zimmerman. Brad has been an avid homebrewer since 1998, making beers, meads, ciders and wine for his own enjoyment. When Brad and Kerri got married in 2005, he made a mead to toast with at their wedding and received great reviews from the guests. Jokingly, he said that he’d someday open a meadery. Paul, a long-time friend and fellow homebrewer, soon began making meads along with Brad in the Dahlhofers’ basement. Their meads quickly began winning awards at homebrewing competitions. In the summer of 2006, Kerri was laid-off from her job. While sipping a glass of vanilla cinnamon mead made by Brad, she thought, “Why not try to sell this?” It was then that the three decided to take their mead making to the next level. In the spring of 2008, Brad too fell victim to layoffs, and the three worked night and day to prepare for their opening. After nearly two years since its inception, B. Nektar finally opened its doors on August 2, 2008 (National Mead Day). To say it’s been a long road from the home-brewing days would be a tremendous understatement. B. Nektar continues to spread the gospel of mead, as well as increasing their product line and production capacity.

Later it became the farm workshop and remained that for the last 20+ years. Mike Beck (Uncle John’s Son), has been making fresh cider for as long as he can remember. He has always believed that the next step in making fresh juice was to turn it into hard cider! In 2003, with the help of a Federal Value Added Agricultural grant, he and his wife Dede, converted the barn again, and is now the home of Uncle John’s Fruit House Winery & Uncle John’s Hard Cider. In addition to Hard Cider, the tasting room features a combination of fruit, and traditional grape wines, along with carbonated, dessert and other specialty wines.

Altonen Orchards and Townline Ciders- Three farms and two farm markets make up Altonen Orchards today, totaling around 600 acres. Approximately half of that is actually farmed. Altonen Orchards is a special place, located in beautiful northwestern Michigan. From the very beginning, Altonen Orchards was a family owned and operated business. John, Sandy, Brian, and Jason work very hard throughout the year doing everything necessary to maintain and operate the farm. They have approximately 30 employees who have been with the farm for over 10 years. The families of those employees also work on the Altonen farms. The Altonen family and all of their employees take their work very much to heart, stressing quality as the byword on the farms. They all truly care about the business of farming the yield from these lands. The combination of family history, experience, and love of the farm are evident in every product. Take some time this year to come visit the Altonen Family Orchards, and get a true "taste" of northern Michigan.
Bee Well Meadery- Our family has lived in the area between Clam Lake, Lake Bellaire, and Torch Lake for six generations. We have a special love of the area and we want to bring you the flavor of this spectacular spot. Our bees travel to local orchards and farms and create a honey that truly represents the flavors of Northern Michigan. We source our fruit as close to the meadery as possible by working with those same local farmers whose crops our bees helped to pollinate. We have a long family history of bottling delicious drinks. Our great great grandpa Bailey bottled water from a natural spring on the banks of Clam Lake. This fantastic water was sold throughout the community. His building still stands across from our childhood home and serves as a daily reminder to do grandpa proud.

Soul Squeeze Cellars- There certainly is something kindred between wine and soul. This affinity can be seen from the humble beginnings in the vineyard, where the elements and sweat equity come together nurturing the fruit. On to the winemaker’s laboratory, where the immature juice develops its relationships and demonstrates its quirks. Then the graceful movement through trials of aging and expectation. At Soul Squeeze Cellars, we place our heart and soul into the divine nature of the winemaking process. The soul can be squeezed through life’s journey, just as a juicy cluster of a specially chosen varietal is when it reaches that first test of faith on the crush pad. Benjamin Franklin stated: “Behold the rain which descends from heaven upon our vineyards, and which incorporates itself with the grapes, to be changed into wine; a constant proof that God loves us, and loves to see us happy.” Indeed, the winemaking business requires a certain level of faith. We have it.

Robinettes Apple Haus- Jim Robinette built a cider mill on our farm in 1971. We make fresh cider starting the Tuesday after Labor Day, and continue through April or early May. We use a blend of apples which changes as the season progresses, always striving for a balance of sweet and tart. You may watch cider being made throughout the fall, and about once a week in the winter. We treat our cider with a UV Light process to prevent possible bacterial contamination. We feel it produces a better cider than a heat pasteurization process does. We use no preservatives and no additives, so our cider is 100 percent pure apple! Our cider is also the starting point for our apple-based wines and hard ciders. The UV Light treatment removes almost all natural yeasts from cider, providing an excellent starting point for anyone wishing to make their own apple wine or hard cider. We make several extra batches of cider in early November every year to freeze for sale in the summer. Our cider season never ends!

Almar Orchard and J. K.s Scrumpy- is well-known for its dedication to "quality over quantity." Throughout the grand history of our orchard very few things have actually changed. The pride in a job well done and the care that it takes to produce a top notch product is - and always has been - what makes Almar Ciders one-of-a-kind. Our cider is not only natural, it is truly organic. It always has been. It's simply a fact of what we do - and how we do it. We use no insecticides in the farm orchards. Rather, I do what my grandfather did. I have a large flock of guinea fowl that wander about and eat the bugs. Fallen apples that have hit the ground are always a food source for pests, so I let my Berkshire pigs wander the orchard and eat the fallen apples. In a fast-paced, instant gratification society all this may seem a little old fashioned, or not "cost-effective." But, we have a cider that is not like any other, and the idea of playing around with what makes that happen... well, it just ain't part of the plan. We are now also "Kosher certified".

It was also used to describe someone or something that is excellent. We think this cider is pippin indeed. We blended several different fermentations from our multitude of options in the cellar. Some were fermented in barrels, some in oak tanks and some in stainless steel tanks. Months after fermentation and settling we tasted through and found this blend worked very well.|

Meckley's Flavor Fruit Farm- We have been hand crafting artesian ciders for over 50 years. Each bottle contains a unique blend of hand-picked apples from our orchards to create a truly irresistible brew. Enjoy – with friends, and often. Our cider press is a “rack and cloth” style press, which have been around for over 100 years. There are very few of this style presses still used today. The press takes at least 3 individuals to operate and creates small batches of approximately 100 + gallons of cider. Production varies depending on apple blend and the time of the season. Our process is very “old school” and we believe that is what makes our cider so unique.
Hideout Brewing- Since 2005, Hideout Brewing Company has been offering a wide variety of hand-crafted beers that will satisfy anyone’s taste.

The Northville Winery has been in business for over 20 years. It was started by Vern Bodker and his son Chris as a small supplemental income to the cider business. It was sold to Cheryl and Rob Nelson, and Diane and Mel Jones along with the Cider Mill in 1991. Robb and Carina Nelson took over running the winery 5 years ago and have been expanding the winery ever since. The winery produces several alcoholic wines, hard ciders flavors and one non-alcoholic, sparkling cider. The Northville Winery has been inside the Northville Cider Mill since its creation. It has been a important part of the community for a long time. A place where friends and family gather Fall after Fall. Now, the winery is expanding and adding a second tasting room that will be open all year long. Still on the cider mill property we have added more space for our customers to taste, drink and purchase bottles of their favorite wines and ciders.
The Peoples Cider Company- Jason Lummen pressed the apples at a local farm for his first batch of cider in 2002.

As years passed his friends and family had the opportunity to taste the cider Jason was producing. Encouraged by their accolades and having been fortunate enough to have had time immersed in a European cider drinking culture, Jason developed a dry drinkable cider that is a fresh take on craft beverages in West Michigan. In June of 2011, on his son's first birthday Jason incorporated The Peoples Cider Company with the goal of creating a premium dry cider.

Country Mill Winery- From it's humble beginnings in 1871 where the orchard was a u-pick only operation with the cash register consisting of a tin can nailed on top of a wooden fence post, our farm has grown considerably since then. The Tennes family (Bernie & Ann) "bought the farm" in 1971 with a desire to raise their children (only Michael at that time) on a farm instilling strong family values and work ethic. Bernie with a PhD in agricultural engineering couldn't leave his USDA work "at work" but instead our farm became his personal laboratory. Once idea lead to another, resulting in what you see today.
