Beer, Wine & Cider

One of the many things we LOVE to do in Alpena: Sanctuary of the Great Lakes. Check out these local treats for your homegrown Beer, Wine & Cider tour: 
 Stoney Acres Winery 

Knaebe’s Twisted Roots Tasting Room. 

Stoney Acres Winery is just a few minutes outside of the city limits, nestled in a forest of tall pines. Stoney Acres offers a wide variety of fruit flavored wines, and they are also famous for their Shipwreck Soda soft drink. You can find almost anything inside the winery store and tasting room. They make homemade caramel corn, hand dipped gourmet wine truffles, chocolate bark, and plenty of other sweet treats. You can also buy wine and beer making supplies if you would like to try to master the process yourself. As if this wasn’t enough, Stoney Acres has a beautiful outdoor patio and flower garden with a waterfall fountain where they serve gourmet appetizers during the summer. This is definitely one of our “go-to” spots when we’re ready for some relaxing with friends!

Thunder Bay Winery

Thunder Bay Winery Tasting Room.

Thunder Bay Winery’s  wine tasting room is located in the historic Center Building of bustling downtown Alpena. With its huge front windows that overlook Second Avenue, it’s an easy place to spend the afternoon people watching. It’s also the perfect place to bring a few friends and have a date night, or you can even arrange to bring a group and enjoy sampling wine in a private room. The friendly, professional and knowledgeable staff really makes the experience authentic as you learn the history of the wine- from the fruit being picked in the nearby local vineyard, to how the flavors are created and melded, right down to the genuine aging in oak barrels. It’s the perfect place to enjoy a night on the town.
