Urban Forage Winery & Cider House
We’re open for bottle sales from 3-7 PM on Fridays and 1-5 PM Saturdays, and hold events on a regular basis where you can try our cider by the glass. Our production facility, bottle shop and event space are located at 3016 East Lake Street in the heart of the Longfellow neighborhood in the beautiful city of Minneapolis.
We use crowdsourced fruit, flowers and honey as well as locally sourced fresh juice, to produce top quality hard cider, honey mead and fruit wines, all handmade in our stainless steel fermenters in small batches. In 2017 we’ll add a taproom to our 100-year-old building on Lake Street.
Cider, wine and mead have been made for millennia without the use of a chemistry set. Our goal is to make wines and ciders using no chemicals if possible and with minimal processing. We pasteurize our products to make them shelf-stable instead of dosing them with chemical additives. The types of cider and wine that we have available for sale depend on the time of year and on how fast our limited inventory is selling. Check our products page to see what we currently have in stock.
At the moment, our Semisweet Sparkling Cider, Semisweet Mead and Gin Botanical Cider are for sale at over 30 liquor stores in Minneapolis, St. Paul and several of the suburbs. Others are for sale only at our location at 3016 East Lake Street in Minneapolis on Fridays and Saturdays.
