Indianapolis, IN – New Day Craft launched distribution in Ohio with Cavalier Distributing earlier this year, and has hit the ground running. Already in nearly 100 locations statewide, New Day specializes in modern craft mead and hard cider that is as approachable as it is innovative. Bold and full of flavor, their products possess a balance and complexity created by virtue of using whole fruit, wildflower honey, and specialty yeast strains; quality ingredients with no concentrates, purees or natural flavors.
