Ore Creek Craft Cidery & Taproom

Ore Creek Craft Cidery & Taproom is the home of happy potions for happy people in Pinckney. This taproom is your source for craft cider and crazy creations using its unique brewing process. Visit this slice of paradise on the Portage River all year round: rain, snow, and especially shine. The sleek gray building feels like an up-north cabin with exposed wood and brick, barrel tables, and stools to pull around and chat with friends.

The cider is made from luscious, locally sourced Michigan apples in Pinckney, Michigan. The taproom is supplied each day with nine tasty cider taps. Famously, the minds behind the cider will have you start at “level 1”. First, they give you the story of each cider and help you decide what pour would be best for you. Each time you visit, they’ll welcome you back with open arms and a fresh glass, ready to pour.

The Chappy is one choice on the taps, infused with Michigan tart cherries and best enjoyed on perfect Michigan waves. There’s also the Angry Spanker, jokingly known in their taproom as an altercation involving apples and pickled jalapeno in which the apple won; it’s known for its snappy finish. Another favorite is Gilligan’s Crush, a crisp cider with an “unforgettable kiss of ginger, served extra chilled to someone out of your league.” Undoubtedly, they have lots of fun with flavor and flare at Ore Creek Craft Cidery & Taproom. Ask about the three rotating taps for a seasonal pour or unique limited edition beverage. Cider is available by the dedicated ounce, available in flights, and by the to-go growler.

For a refreshing pour of Pinckney, head down to what’s become known as “the cider shack.” The happy people pouring these potions are ready to welcome you into their home away from home.
