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.
