About Kekionga Cider Company

It started with two longtime friends, a cousin’s basket press, and a brother’s apple tree. In cliché terms, the rest is history.  Tyler Butcher and Logan Barger had always wanted to start their own company within the alcohol industry, and after that first pressing of apples, knew what they wanted to do. Teaming up with another friend, Britton Falkenstern, and Don and Greg Goeglein, owners of Goeglein Catering, Kekionga Cider Company became a reality.

Goeglein Mill had recently been re-purchased by the Goeglein’s, as it had been out of the family for many years.  Construction began shortly after the purchase to bring the building back to its historic form.

Kekionga Cider Company has been able to find its home at the mill and has started to produce great tasting and easy drinking hard cider for its northeast Indiana community. Our company works with a single family owned orchard in northwest Michigan, ensuring that only the best apples go into making our hard cider. Come visit the Mill and enjoy a glass, or three, of Fort Wayne’s original and only hard cider.
