Feathers & Fermentation Tour
Join Wesley Homoya - a native Hoosier, avid birder, tour guide, and conservationist - as we explore nature and enjoy quality adult beverages. Wes’ travels and ornithological employments have allowed him to live and bird in places as varied as Maui, Brazil, the Galapagos, Hungary, SE Asia, and Ecuador.
Tours meet at Ash & Elm Cider Co., where after a short tour and tasting, you can grab cans and growlers of your favorite ciders for the road. Each Feathers and Fermentation tour is specifically designed for the season. Past events have included a hike in Eagle Creek Park, kayaking in Eagle Creek Reservoir and live Birds of Prey demonstration at the Eagle Creek Ornithology Center. After each outing we visit a local Indianapolis brewery (this rotates per outing), then we return to Ash & Elm where you can linger awhile with plenty more cider and food options available.
Bird Road Trip Tour

If full, join the waitlist and we'll open up another bus once the minimum is met.
BIRD ROAD TRIP!!! For this installment of our Feathers and Fermentation tour, Wes somehow talked Andy into making the longest voyage ever (by far) for one of his green buses! The journey will be long, but it will be oh so worth it, as we'll visit two breweries up north Crasian Brewery (Brookston) and Kopacetic Beer Factory (Monticello), with a meal at the latter location included in your ticket price.
The birding highlight of this tour is being chauffeured to Jasper-Pulaski Fish & Wildlife Area to see The Greatest Spectacle in Indiana Birding, namely, the Sandhill Crane migration. Witness over 20,000 of these huge "living dinosaurs" as they come from miles around to parachute down from the sky to a field they use each fall, their bugling calls filling the air as they congregate, forage, and dance. Seats will be limited for this event. A waitlist will be available.
