Kirk and Sharon Jones have been raising hives, extracting honey, and producing honey-based products since the late 1970s in Beulah, Michigan, and Florida. In the early 2010s, after years of home-based experimentation with the art of meadmaking, Kirk and Sharon embarked on a new journey: bringing a full-fledged meadery to Northern Michigan – St. Ambrose Cellars was born.
Soon after, they developed a new line that has become a signature of the meadery – the St. Ambrose Cellars Draft Style Meads. Carbonated like a beer or hard cider, these microbrews of the mead world feature bold flavors. All the honey for St. Ambrose Cellars meads is harvested from bees tended by the hard-working beekeepers at Sleeping Bear Farms in northern Michigan and Florida.
