WHO WE ARE

WE ARE ANN ARBOR'S NANO-CANNERY, FOR NOW WITH JUST A SMALL SHOP LOCATED ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF TOWN, JUST OFF OF ELLSWORTH ROAD. OUR BEER IS ALSO AVAILABLE IN SOME OF THE CLASSIEST JOINTS IN AND AROUND TOWN.

OUR APPROACH TO BEER IS HEAVILY INFLUENCED BY TRADITIONAL RECIPES AND PROCESSES, BUT WE DO LIKE TO JUMP OUTSIDE OF THAT BOX OCCASIONALLY.

CHEERS!
