The 27 Club was bartender Josh Van Gorden’s contribution to the Copper & King’s annual MixT&pe competition, in which competitors build a cocktail based on a song of their choosing. Initially dubbed "Purple Haze", the 27 Club is a nod to Jimi Hendrix not only in color, but in taste and texture as well.

In this year’s Wine & Spirits Guide, we look at why Michigan wine tastes the way it does, where to meet all your local cider and mead needs, and why rosé may be the hottest drink of the summer.

The Great Apple Grapple: Farmhaus rides the cider wave despite zoning battle

Written by Troy Reimink | Wednesday, 03 May 2017 14:22 |

Farmhouse Cider Co. is quietly helping a craft beverage revolution from the least assuming location imaginable — a generations-old family farm on a dirt road outside Hudsonville. “It’s a place unlike anywhere else,” said John Behrens. “It feels like you’re a million miles from anywhere, but you’re like 15 miles from downtown.”

All 50 states make wine these days — but that doesn’t necessarily mean they should. I mean, sorry, but can you imagine a Nebraskan Pinot Gris? Fortunately, Michigan is blessed with a climate conducive to winemaking. We decided to find out what makes Michigan wine great with the help of the folks at 45 North Vineyard and Winery, a spot known for consistent quality, beautiful facilities and happy dogs.

Hard cider and mead exist in a liquid twilight, neither beer nor wine nor liquor. Cider is light and sweet like a wine, but with the ABV and carbonation of a beer.

Wineries are a little harder to find than breweries, but that doesn’t mean we have any shortage of the stuff in West and Northern Michigan. Dozens of wineries are pumping out more than enough vino for all (supposedly thanks to a France-esque climate). Southwest Michigan and Traverse City are particularly dense with vineyards if you know where to look.
