Civil Cider- Born out of our love of fine cider, Civil Cider will be established as the first urban cidery in the state of Delaware. After many travels, sampling different styles, we decided to make our way back home to bring the delicious world of cider to you. Our biggest challenge was not only finding the right location, but also the proper heirloom, indigenous apples in order to produce our flagship, high-quality, dry, session cider. Please come and visit our tasting room (coming soon) to experience the revolution yourself. Our Partners, Hess Brothers, located in Leola, PA source only the finest apples from the region.
Black Twig Hard Cider- The variety that we have is a sparkling wine so folks that are familiar with a bottled hard cider that's 4-5% alcohol will find this to be pleasant change, a flavorful sparkling wine around 8% alcohol.
Rebel Seed Cider- We are a local Cider produced with local apples. We are the sister brand of Harvest Ridge Winery. Stay Tuned for our upcoming release! The name “Harvest Ridge” was the original name of the farm and was retained for the winery. The first vines were planted in 2011 – Chardonnay, Viognier, Malbec, and Merlot. The winery opened to the public (as Delaware’s fourth winery) on November 1, 2013. Harvest Ridge Winery’s property spans the border of two states – Delaware and Maryland. It is on the historic Mason-Dixon Line. In fact, one of the most unique features of the property is the existence of one of the Mason-Dixon’s original witness stone and crown markers – number 47 – located on the property.
Dogfish Head Sick Cider- is a rustic sorta-cider made with unfiltered and unpasteurized apple cider and a little bit of American 2-row barley malt (so not quite gluten-free). It’s fermented entirely with a culture of funky and wild Brett yeast, most widely known for helping to create the beautiful Lambic ales of Belgium. Aged in barrels, Sick Cider is crisp, tart and refreshing.
|The Dark Cide(r)- A true Delaware original with pure apple juice (thanks to Fifer Orchards!), fresh dark brown sugars, and local honey ---- welcome to this American Dark Hard Cider. Apple meets Honey and alchemizes into a quite potent (7% ABV) little cider that will possibly knock you off your seat (drink too many and this might be a possibility -------- and we are not responsible......). We have always been cider fans, but the wimpy light amber ciders were too sweet and didn't have any "punch" to them. We got that punch and are ready to share it with all. We will start with our beloved home state of Delaware and then share it with the world. Who knows, maybe the English are ready for an American product to turn their heads a little bit???||The Light Cide(r)- Newton's Third Law of Motion states that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. We knew that once we unleashed the Dark Cide(r) unto the world, it would only be a matter of time until its opposite arrived. At its core, it shares similarities with its kin but resists the urge to go dark. We dare you to resist the compelling force you'll have to drink this powerful hard cider. Welcome to The Light Cide(r). |
|Deeply Rooted- We start with The Dark Cide(r) as a base and to that we add sarsaparilla, birch bark, and Madagascar vanilla beans. The result is an earthy, woodsy cider reminiscent of birch beer or root beer. Deeply Rooted is slightly sweetened on the back end with Michigan grown apple juice but still is not overly sweet.||Traditions- This is about as pure and straightforward as a cider can get. Similar to Sweet-Nothing on our mead side TRADITIONS is the pure and simple side of our fancy and complicated world. For all the super Back-to-Basics folks in the world, we have the clean, crisp, slightly tart, slightly dry hard cider that will give you an idea of what they used to drink in this area back in our forefather days History never tasted this good!|
T.S. Smith and Sons- Our farm was established in 1907 by Thomas Sterling Smith, and today is one of only two orchards remaining in the state of Delaware. We are best known for our fresh and tasty apples and juicy sweet peaches, but you'll love the fresh seasonal vegetables including tender asparagus in the spring, sweet corn and cantaloupes in the summer, and pumpkins and squash in the fall. In 2011 we produced the first modern hard cider in the state of Delaware. We recognize apple cider's history in our country from the colonial period as well as its role in agriculture, so it's nice to kind of bring back an old friend.

Delaware- is located in the northeastern portion of the Delmarva Peninsula and is the second least extensive, the sixth least populous, but the sixth most densely populated of the 50 United States. Delaware Code stipulates that alcoholic liquor only be sold in specifically licensed establishments, and only between 9:00 AM and 1:00 AM. Until 2003, Delaware was among the several states enforcing blue laws and banned sale of liquor on Sunday. Delaware has only two orchards nationally registered, and while along with all the early colonies it was a major hard cider producer thru the 18th century, in 2012 it produced its first modern hard cider, with 4 more opened since.

Liquid Alchemy Beverages- Delaware's very first craft meadery! Liquid Alchemy Beverages produces hand crafted honey wine with the finest ingredients available, many locally sourced. I had no idea that the journey we started in 2012 would take us from experimental bottles all over our kitchen and basement to a full demolition and resurrection of an old roofing building. After four long years of going from idea to creation (and may days of blood, sweat and tears) we are more than over-joyed to finally present Liquid Alchemy Beverages.
|First Anthem Semi-Dry Cider- This light and refreshing off-dry cider has a wonderful nose of apple blossoms and fresh green apples with a not-too-sweet taste which makes it a great accompaniment to any occasion or meal.||Hoptimized Dry Cider- Our fuller bodied dry style cider has loads of personality and flavor. Aromas of ripe apples, graham crackers and tropical citrus notes from the added hops continue on the tart and toasty palate. ||Sweet Red Cider- A sweet hard cider made from red delicious apples. Refreshing, light, and enjoyable.|
