Who We Are

Elder Piper is an artisinal brewery and cidery in northern Michigan founded as a celebration and exploration of the art of fermentation.

We make modern fermented beverages with a story and sense of adventure. Curiosity and intentionality are the foundation for our brews.

The brewery was born from years of perfecting a technical process and exploring the breadth of our craft. In some ways, the brewery is a home for all our wild ideas and projects that did not fit into our past experiences in the craft beer industry.

Our brews reflect the region in which they are made: drawing on rich local agriculture and translating it into something modern, unexpected, and yet strangely familiar.

We believe that beer should be an experience and a journey built on curiosity, delight, and a connection to the place in which it was made and enjoyed.
