Naturally, awesomely restorative.

Before sports drinks, there was switchel. Long a staple in American farms, children carried switchel out to the hayfields in mason jars so their parents could hydrate and reenergize. This was the thirst-quencher of choice for farmers during haying season, earning the nickname Haymaker’s Punch. Today, we just call it awesome.

Crafted with simple ingredients.

St. Paul Switchel is small-batch crafted in reusable Mason jars.  Ours is ablend of apple cider vinegar, fresh ginger and wildflower honey from local bees.  With a sweet-tangy flavor profile, St. Paul Switchel restores and refreshes served cold on a hot summer day or served warm in the winter. Like a tried-and-true recipe passed down from a great grandparent, and in the tradition of a craft beer, St. Paul Switchel is revitalizing small-batch, all-natural energy drinks.

What is switchel?

Long known for its restorative effects, farmers drank switchel to offset dehydration from the hard work of hand cutting grass with a scythe during haying season. Switchel replenished electrolytes, quenched their thirst, cleared their lungs and reenergized farmers during harvests, getting them back into the field for more work.
