Actor Dylan Sprouse is stepping away from the spotlight and focusing on making a mark in the beverage industry.
The former Disney star rose to fame starring opposite his identical twin brother Cole Sprouse on hit show The Suite Life of Zack & Cody. Though he still continues to appear on-screen, the 25-year-old’s passion for brewing alcohol is currently his priority.
Sprouse’s specialty is mead, a drink containing a mix of honey and yeast, and the star has been working on plans to turn his passion into lucrative business.
“I really developed a love for it as an expression (of myself),” he told Vulture of crafting his own mead.
Sprouse is set to open his own bar, All-Wise Meadery, in Brooklyn, New York sometime next year (18).
According to the official website for the establishment, Sprouse will work on sight at All-Wise, “to create mead the way the dogs would like it” and will be seen “often having a glass or two with patrons”.
“I will definitely be doing that,” Sprouse told Vulture. “I’m a people person. That’s my bread and butter.”
