At Small Town Brewery, they’re pretty much the masters of crafting gruit-inspired beers. Today, their brewmasters use a proprietary technique to infuse herbs and spices into the brewing process. This is what makes it possible for them to brew these classic American and bakery-inspired flavors.
Not Your Father's Root Beer...Tastes just like the root beer you remember as a kid. Sweet and silky, it goes down smooth and hits your tongue with the perfect combination of vanilla, sarsaparilla and anise.
Not Your Father's Mountain Ale...If you want citrus, this is your beer. A big ol’ wallop of crisp citrus notes invades your mouth on the first sip. A smooth finish means you can knock back a few of these by yourself – or split a sixer with friends. You don’t even have to be on a mountain.
Not Your Mom's Iced Tea...There are some days that are just made for iced tea. And then there are days when you need a little something harder. Not Your Mom’s Iced Tea, is a thirst- and stress-quenching twist on the classic drink people everywhere turn to for good ol’ fashioned refreshment.
Not Your Father's Vanilla Cream Ale...What you might not know is that Madagascar produces the best vanilla in the world. And we use a healthy dose of it (literally tons) to make Not Your Father’s Vanilla Cream Ale, a classic American favorite that comes through with a vanilla flavor that’s anything but ordinary.
Not Your Father's Ginger Ale...There’s a reason Gingers are known for their feistiness. In this brew, the distinct, spicy taste of ginger is balanced by a sweet, mellow undercurrent. A gutsy, citrus-driven note hits the front of the tongue, while just the right touch of floral and fruit notes give the ale a full-bodied finish. This is definitely an ale with attitude.
Not Your Mom's Apple Pie...The color of a crisp, ripe, golden apple, this craft brew hits you with notes of applesauce, light cinnamon, cloves and biscuit. On the second sip, you’ll swear you can taste the crust.
Not Your Mom's Strawberry Rhubarb...Sometimes rhubarb gets a bad rap. It’s a vegetable that masquerades as a fruit and almost always gets paired up with its much more celebrated friend, strawberry. Well, rhubarb finally gets half the stage with Not Your Mom’s Strawberry Rhubarb, a flavored craft brew that reminds of you the fresh pies Mom used to take out of a box she got at the local bakery.

Four locals were having a few at the local tavern. They’d been talking new venture. Something unexpected. Something seriously fun. It would be a distillery. Dedicated to craftsmanship, and genuine craft distilling. An asset to the community. The decision was made. The partners were all in. Make it right or don’t make it at all. They knew Rush Creek Distilling could raise the bar.

When throwing a festival that's a love letter to your city, an homage to your best friend, an eclectic food celebration, and striving to bring joy to a crowd of like-minded strangers, well, the stakes are high. Trust the obvious: unforgettable live performances. The best chefs you can dream of. The city you know and love. Happy places. Good friends. Fun. Dive deeper: The lyric you can't stop singing. The magic you discover in a bite. The tears of joy that run down your face when you hear that same song for the seventh time in a row. The meal you can't stop describing to your friends. The smile you can't wipe off your face. Put all of this together in a shoreline setting, add a sea of people who are feeling that same incredible feeling, and don't worry about wiping that smile (or frosting) off your face. This is Music Tastes Good, the festival that celebrates that cerebral and visceral connection of taste and creativity.

Wet Whistle Wine Fest offers award-winning wines, a grape stomp, hearty sandwiches, & live music! It isn’t the 2,000 visitors smiling all the time that’s weird. Nor is it the trombonist standing in a grape-filled barrel while playing an amazing riff, nor the people with sticky purple feet dancing onstage. This is normal at a wine fest and to be expected. What’s odd at Wet Whistle Wine Fest are all the costumes. We don’t ask anyone to show up dressed as wine bottles, or happy nuns who love Naughty Girl wine. These are just a couple examples of Wet Whistle Wine Fest goings-on that we just couldn’t make up. Don’t take our word for it… come to the wine fest and see it for yourself!
This Wet Whistle Wine Fest is a fundraiser for the Community Improvement of Algoma, and the Algoma Fire and Rescue. Come out to support these great non-profit organizations of Algoma!
