It’s Memorial Day Weekend, and we’re sure you’re excited for the traditional kick-off to summer!
We’ll keep it brief and to the point here today, because we’ve got a TON of stuff going on and we don’t want you to miss any of it.
Ever wonder how the brewcrew spends their time when they aren’t making and bottling your current favorites? Find out this weekend with our Cyser Lab experiment. We’ve got a limited edition release of three new cysers that may someday join the permanent lineup – if you like them!
We have a Strawberry/Black Pepper cyser, an Orange Blossom cyser aged in French Oak barrels, and a Passionfruit cyser! Each will be available – until it’s gone – this weekend. Hurry and get here early in case your potential new favorite runs out!
Turbo Pup Duo graces the tasting room stage on Friday night for what is sure to be a rockin’ show! These local heroes are ready to melt some faces here at St. Ambrose Cellars and we couldn’t be more excited. Join us on Friday night at 6PM!
Ted Alan hits the tasting room for a Saturday night show – like always, the fun starts at 6 PM
Looking for some outdoor recreation this weekend? Hit the disc golf course out back – and pick up some new Black Madonna discs from our friends at Innova.
Another week of sun here at St. Ambrose Cellars! Let’s take a look at what we’ve got going on …
On the music front, we’ll have OPEN MIC with Jim and Wanda on Thursdays, as per usual. The fun starts at 6 – bring your skills and join the jam. Our own K Jones might even pop in to help strum some tunes!
On Friday night, Chris Winkelmann is here in the tasting room. Wink always brings a crowd and a fun time, so come on down!
On Saturday night, we’ve got Alex Mendenall. Alex has been to the tasting room before and it’s a lovely evening. He’ll be here starting at 6PM for all the fun.
Spring Sale Winding Down
It’s almost Memorial Day weekend, and that means the end of our Spring Sale. Stop in before the holiday to get 20% off on apparel, 50% off on Rose Ambrosia, and 50% on a growler fill if you buy one at full price.
The Lawn is Alive!
Bocce ball, disc golf, ladder ball, cornhole – it’s all available. With the temps on the rise and the sun shining high, we’ve had plenty of people enjoying the games out on the lawn. Stop by and have a few drinks and get in some competitive fun while you do it.
On Sunday (May 20th) we’ve got LuLa Roe with Heather Nickerson. Check out the details on the Facebook event page!
It’s time for another look at what’s going on at St. Ambrose Cellars!
Eat a Peach
Eat a Peach is our newest draft style mead creation, and it’s been rolling it’s way into stores across Michigan the past few weeks. Our store locator has been updated with almost 80 locations that are offering this new cyser.
Featuring a refreshing apple, peach, and honey flavor profile, Eat a Peach is a great summer refresher. This new mead has been a hit everywhere we’ve taken it, and we’re sure you’re going to love it to! Find it now, either in a store near you, our tasting room, or through our web store.
$2 Beer Wednesdays
Our newest tradition rolls on this week with our $2 Beer Wednesdays. For just $2 – yes that’s right, just $2 – you can have a glass of one our awesome new beers. Our newest addition to the tap is Sandbar Pale Ale. It’s a malt-forward pale ale that’s got a delightful red hue to it. Check it out this Wednesday, and stick around to play some games with your friends.
Music This Weekend
It’s another awesome weekend of music. We kick things off with Open Mic Night featuring Jim & Wanda Curtis. Rumor has it that Mr. Jones might even be joining in on the fun now that he’s returned to the great state of Michigan.
On Friday, Dede Alder makes her way back to the tasting room for another night of magical music. Dede is a favorite and we’re glad to see her back.
Maggie McCabe brings her rock n’ roll show to the tasting room on Saturday night. The fun starts at 6 PM – and believe us, it’s always fun when Maggie comes to town!
We’ve got a limited supply of Double Vision cider still available. This collaboration with Townline Ciderworks features Wickson Crab Apples, Star Thistle Honey, Tart Cherry Juice, and Ramblin’ Rose Tea from Bear Earth Essentials.
On May 15th, we begin our Yard Yoga series, taught by the wonderful Jenn Ryan. For just $10 you get a 1 hour yoga class in our serene bee garden area. There are some extra mats available – make sure to mention if you need one when you register. View more details and a registration number here.
LuLaRoe Pop-Up May 20th
LuLaRoe returns to the winery on Sunday, May 20th. Stay tuned for more details to come on this pop-up boutique experience.
Mother’s Day Wines
In case you missed it last week, we have a whole slew of new wines available. Any of these would make a great gift for Mother’s Day this weekend – so if you haven’t found a present yet, make sure to stop out and pick up some this week!
Spring has sprung at St. Ambrose Cellars! The Sleeping Bear Farms bee hives have returned, so if you get out here soon, you can experience the wonderful symphony of nature that a yard full of hives produces. It’s truly a unique experience that we recommend checking out before they disperse to their summer jobs pollinating the Northern Michigan orchards and farm lands.
With the temperatures hovering in the 50s and 60s, it looks like you’ll have another week or so to get a piece of our $1 Beer Deal – until it hits 70 degree outside (or we run out) we are offering $1 glasses of Stoney Wheat. Stoney Wheat is a summery fruit wheat beer that features stonefruit flavors.
On Thursday night, as per usual, we’ll have Open Mic Night hosted by Jim and Wanda Curtis. Always a great time! The fun starts at 6PM, and growlers/howlers are 35% all day.
In addition, you can check out our Spring Sale that is running through Memorial Day. You get 20% off all apparel in the tasting room, you get 50% off on Rose’ Ambrosia purchases, and (on any day but Thursday) if you buy a growler fill, you get a second fill at 50% off. Help us make way for the summer season with these awesome deals.
Jim Spalink joins us on Friday night for a night of storytelling and song. Jim is a talented musician and we are super excited to have him back in the tasting room for another show. Below is a great music video he made in honor of an old piano that he was retiring, featuring an original composition and some beautiful photography.
Coming up soon, we have our May Painting Class. Hosted by Toinette Wicks, you get hands-on instruction, all materials, and 10% off your tab that day – the class is $30 per person and it runs from 3PM to 6PM on Monday, May 7th. Tickets are available here or in the tasting room. If you can’t make that time, fear not, we are going to be offering a later start time in the summer season once our hours expand. Look for details on that soon!
We hope to see you around this week – enjoy the sun!
April rolls on here at St. Ambrose Cellars, and we’ve got more great events for you this week.
We have a couple special deals running in the tasting room right now, if you haven’t heard. First, there’s our Spring Sale. As we make room for the summer season, we’re offering 20% off on ALL of our apparel – as well as 50% off Rose’ Ambrosia bottles and a special (every day but Thursday) on growler fills – buy one, and you get your second at 50% off. What a steal!
After the ridiculous winter weather last weekend that had us closed for two days digging out of the storm, we wanted to do something to chase those blues away. We looked at our taps, and decided that we were going to help usher in the warmer weather (someday) with $1 glasses of our summery wheat bear, Stoney Wheat. Come on in and get your dollar beer, and think sunny thoughts.
As always, we have Open Mic and Thirsty Thursday coming up on Thursday, 4/19. The Open Mic fun starts at 6PM and the 35% off howler/growler fills last all day. Stock up on your favorite meads and ciders with us this Thursday.
This weekend, we’ve got the wonderful Jack Pine Savage performing on Saturday night in the tasting room. JPS is one of our favorite acts here, and they always bring a fun crowd – come by at 6PM for the show.
On Sunday, it’s time for The Cheese Lady! She’ll be here from 12PM to 4PM. For just $15 you get to sample six cheeses and 5 of our wines/meads. No advance tickets needed. You can view the entire menu here. This is always a great time, and we encourage you to come by this Sunday afternoon and try the cheese pairings. We’ll have the cheese for sale on site as well, so you can keep the party going at home.
If you can’t make it to the tasting room, remember that you can find a store carrying our products near you with the help of our store locator. We keep it as up to date as possible to help you find our products in Michigan, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, and North Carolina. If you aren’t in one of those states – or there’s no store near you – you can also order online and have some St. Ambrose Cellars goodness delivered right to your door.
