Distillery now open at Fenton Winery & Brewery FENTON, MI 

It’s an exciting time at Fenton Winery & Brewery (FWB) - owners Matt and Ginny Sherrow proudly announce the grand opening of Dream Machine Distillery. Their taproom now features a new, small-batch distillery and a breathtaking new cocktail bar serving innovative cocktails. "We worked on this project for over two years. It took a lot of dreaming and planning, and a soft opening occurred in early July.” The grand opening of Dream Machine Distillery at FWB is kicking off on Tuesday, November 22, with a ribbon cutting. A week of activities are planned in the taproom. Closed on Thanksgiving Day, but the rest of the days will be filled with releases of new spirits, tours, a public party, and culminating with the launch of new Sunday brunch hours and menu. Free tours are available both Friday and Saturday 12-4 pm with advanced reservations. DJ Chachi, the official DJ of the Detroit Pistons and Red Wings, will be providing jams to celebrate beginning at 6 pm on Saturday, November 26. “We spent a lot of time researching and educating ourselves. We bought state-of-the-art technology and worked with professionals to create the branding and to build a landmark new cocktail bar. We wanted the distillery to have its own brand, one that really resonated with us. Dream Machine represents both the artistic and scientific approach we use to create spirits and deliver experiences here at FWB. A special thanks to those who worked alongside us within our business and in the community to plan, create, and launch this exciting new line of products. We are grateful to our team members and partner businesses for their time in working on this new distillery operations.” The Dream Machine brand logos and names highlight innovative machines built throughout human history. Their base spirit line-up of vodkas, gins, rums and agave spirits feature a hot air balloon (the original “flying machine”) on the label, representing the simplest machine marking the simplest spirits. Barrel-aged spirits adorn a label with an airplane representing an advancement in recipe complexity. Their award-winning signature Gin is named after the first bicycle, the Swiftwalker. "At Dream Machine, we engineer small batch spirits for spirited people." FWB is located at 1370 N. Long Lake Road in Fenton, MI. There is a public taproom open 6 days a week and a full-service 280-person wedding venue. To learn more about the grand opening or the business, contact them at (810) 373-4194,, or visit:
