Join us for a beer or wine tour this summer!
The Boyne Highlands Wine and Beer Tour is a complete Northern Michigan experience. Not only do you get to try craft beers and wine, but you learn about the area through the authentic and rustic feel of Northern Michigan that is very apparent in these select wineries/breweries. Each tour features wineries/breweries based on guest preferences which makes each tour slightly different, giving each guest a unique experience with us!
Our first stop was Pond Hill Farms, a small working farm north of Harbor Springs that includes a livestock barn, winery and brewery. The quiet farm also offers a café featuring a delicious farm to table menu as well as plenty of activities to keep us entertained.
The second stop on our tour was Petoskey Farms Vineyard & Winery, a gorgeous little winery just outside of Petoskey with their own pizza truck. The owner was super bubbly and kindly gave us her recommendations, answering any/all questions we had about the different wines they offer and the northern Michigan inspirations for each. This adorable winery also comes with a breathtaking view of their vineyard and the countryside surrounding them.
Our final brewery was Beards Brewery, in downtown Petoskey. This place has more than just craft beers, they have board games and a record player upstairs that you can play while you sample their finest brews with your friends on the tour. A cute little brewery with character all its own, this place also has an incredibly beautiful view of Lake Michigan while also featuring delicious food ready to be ordered.
Indulging ourselves on this wine and beer tour left us with a feeling of excitement and restoration. Learning the history behind the places and buildings we have around here, trying new drinks, and being surrounded by your closest friends is a perfect combination for a summer tour.
