The Original Gravity Brewery is taking it to the next level.
Brad Sancho, owner, says he has applied for a wine and cider license. 
His brewery has been growing since he opened on County Street in 2008. OG has a variety of beers to choose from, including “Primordial Porter” and “County Street Amber.”
Sometime in early 2017, Sancho hopes to receive his license to serve wine.
“It will be small batch wine and cider. We’ll make some of it here,” Sancho comments.
His license will allow him to select wine and cider from other wineries, and bring it to OG in barrels.
Sancho is proud of his involvement in Southeast Michigan as a beer producer. He participates at the Eastern Market in Detroit where a beer festival is held, organized by the Michigan Brewers Guild.
The OG Brewery has a reputation reaching to Belleville, Saline, Ypsilanti, and Ann Arbor. Sancho says he notices his customers come from a wide area around Milan. 
Offering wine will increase his customers, Sancho said. “A customer might say, ‘I’d come here more often but my wife prefers wine.”
The cider should draw customers, too, Sancho says. “Cider’s really, really hot right now” he remarked. “You can use different ingredients, different spices.”
Sancho says his hand-made sandwiches are popular, because he uses Mother Loaf bread, located next door, and brand-name meats and cheeses.
