A Brief word about our ciders:
All of our ciders are crafted with inspiration from traditional French, English, and Spanish ciders. They have more similarities with white wines than they share with most American ciders. We aim to set ourselves apart from the crowd. Our ciders are all on the dry side and unfiltered.
All of the ciders listed below are currently available on draft or in cans at local establishments. We update the available cider list as we release new ciders and as the seasons change. Check back to see the latest offerings.
All of our ciders are GLUTEN FREE.
We wanted to make a light and refreshing cider for the warmer months of the year. With that goal in mind, we set out to find a combination of our favorite summery ingredients. Nothing is more refreshing than a cold glass of iced tea on a hot day. Arosé is infused with a hint of organic gunpowder green tea. The tea contributes a slightly tannic mouth feel and crisp finish complimenting the apple character perfectly. We also add organic dried hibiscus which adds just a hint of floral spring notes in the aroma and results in the light peachy hue of the cider. All of these flavors harmonize to create the perfect light and refreshing thirst-quenching cider.

Bees is an off-dry cider sweetened with locally sourced, responsibly harvested honey. The addition of honey adds just a touch of sweetness. The honey comes through in the nose of the cider and continues all the way through to the finish. On top of the white wine like qualities of the cider, the honey adds a light floral character creating depth. If you like off-dry, German white wines you will want to try Bees. Available in 12oz cans in cases or 4 packs at local retailers.
PAIRINGS: Spicy Tacos, Sushi, Grilled Steak ABV: 5.8% SWEETNESS: Off-Dry / Semi-Sweet
Exploration Series: Omega is made with a fresh pressed blend of apples and pomegranate purée. We ferment the juice and purée together using a special yeast strain designed for aromatic white wines which accentuates the brightness of the fruit, and highlights the tart and bitter characters of the pomegranate. You’ll experience the apple aroma and flavor on the front end of the tasting experience which transitions into the darker pomegranate notes lingering. Our Exploration Series ciders are extremely small batch and very limited. Look for Omega on draft only at your local spot.
PAIRINGS: Brie Grilled Cheese, Sourdough and Goat Butter ABV: 5.8% SWEETNESS: Dry
We take a crisp blend of fermented apple juice and dry hop it just before packaging using 100% Mosaic hops sourced from the western United States. The Mosaic hops add a light citrus and melon character on top of the crisp notes found in the juice blend. The hop character is light and not overpowering. By using a dry hopping technique, only the hop flavor and aromas are infused into the cider. Don't be afraid to try Earth even if you aren't usually a hop head. Available in 12oz cans in cases or 4 packs at local retailers.
PAIRINGS: Grilled White Fish, Sauteed Shrimp, Pulled Pork ABV: 5.8% SWEETNESS: Dry
For hundreds of years the Spanish have made ciders they call Sidra Natural. These ciders are farmhouse style which means they're wild fermented letting nature run its course with natural yeast and bacteria present in the fresh apple juice. We're finally proud to present Viejo, our very own Sidra Natural. Viejo is a blend of wild fermented ciders created by using some of the best apples we could source in Pennsylvania. The ciders used to blend Viejo were aged for 6-18 months in oak before being used in the finished product. Viejo is a still cider meaning non-carbonated. It's meant to be served with a long pour from great heights to aerate and add effervescence.
PAIRINGS: Bacon, Chevre, Clams ABV: 5.8% SWEETNESS: Dry (Brüt)
