3rd Turn Brewing

You can also enjoy bourbon and fruit slushies, regular special events, live entertainment, and our versatile event space year round!


Enjoy sitting with up to 12 of your friends or a more intimate two-person high top. Lay out a blanket and sit on the grassy lawn while listening to music or bring the whole family and spend time under a wisteria display that covers nearly three large greenhouses for two weeks in the spring.

Hive & Barrel Meadery

Honey wine (or mead) shares many similar characteristics as normal wine, except that it is made with honey instead of grape. If you enjoy dry, sweet, red, or white wines – they’ll have something that should appeal to you! Plus, it is gluten free!


The Mead Bar typically has 6 meads on tap and 2+ house-crafted mead cocktails available. Be sure to try the M&M Smoke Bomb and the Garden Tripper cocktails, or the PB&J Sammich mead! You don’t want to miss the yummy Elderberry or Apricot Peach Cider or the Hibiscus and Orange Blossom meads! They also offer private tours of the production area where they have 10+ meads available for tasting, as well as bottles for sale to take home.


This setting is perfect for people who enjoy the Beer Garden atmosphere, but would rather drink wine than beer. A curated selection of wines from other producers is also available by-the-bottle at the Mead Bar.
