The Beginning: The original 7 BBL brewhouse, where we crafted our original award winning beers, was built with a full hands on approach. Grain is hand mashed-in and mixed and pipes are connected by hand, giving us full control over every part of the brewing process. We do this to ensure optimum quality and consistency, while still being able to continuously tweak, experiment and develop new recipes. Today: Having outgrown our original 7BBL brewhouse, we’ve now doubled our production space. That being said, we continue to build on our original concept to produce the highest quality, hand crafted beers that we’ve been known for since the beginning. We brew the beer we want to drink. Plain and simple.
Hand-baked butter tarts.
Every butter tart is handrolled and baked fresh from my oven to you. I use only the finest ingredients and guarantee that my butter tarts are as fresh as can be.
Founded by a big family on a small farm… our first batch of ginger beer was made in our farmhouse kitchen, with five little taste testers and a big plan to improve our family’s digestive health. Mason jars of bubbly goodness sat on our kitchen countertop, alongside kombucha bottles, sauerkraut crocks and cider vinegar pails.
One summer, we decided to bring along some jars of ginger beer along with our regular farm offerings, to our local farmer’s market. To our surprise, it was a huge hit. We decided to switch gears, and focus entirely on our ginger beer, naming our beverage “Gingerbug,” after the famous ‘ginger bug’ starter culture that is used by fermenters to make wild fermented soda pops, like ours. Just like farming, it was all hands on deck again, as we began to navigate our way through the beverage industry one day at a time.
Today, we are proud to say that Gingerbug is now an emerging brand, that aims to provide only good things to the people who drink it. A healthy soda pop that is wildly refreshing, and totally delicious. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
