Tandem Ciders

Suttons Bay

Making cider from local apples since 2008. Cheers to you, old apple tree!

With a little coercing, Nikki talked the New Englander Dan into moving to Michigan, where she had her heart set on living in Leelanau County. They noticed so many apples (along with a lot of cherries), but no cider in sight. After three years of planning, writing, thinking creatively, Tandem Ciders was born. From the design, to the building itself, they worked to build a place that reminded them of the many pubs from their English cycling tour: warm, fun, intimate--a place to stop, relax, and enjoy life for a moment. They also wanted the cidery to feel as though it was always part of Leelanau County, where neighbors and visitors would come for a pint, a taste, for the weekend, or each Friday night.
