Handmade in Northern Michigan

Elder Piper is a brewery and cidery founded for the exploration and celebration of fermentation. We are inspired by the places and people that make our home in northern Michigan unique.

Our brand

Our name, Elder Piper, was the first and middle name of one of our ancestors. Elder Piper is a curious name with a hint of magic. It felt true to us and the beers and ciders we make.

Our logo is a stylized representation of the Pitchers Thistle (Cirsium pitcheri). We admire this native northern Michigan plant and the way it thrives among the ever-shifting sands of the Great Lakes dunes.
