betterRoot Cider- Passion for the Craft. We want to serve you the best farm to glass beverage! Come enjoy great flavors, great views, and great company at betterRoot Orchard and Tasting Room, situated between the Sapphire and Bitterroot mountains. The Valley offers a unique Terrior for growing some of the best cider apples. betterRoot began in a glass and a taste was all it took to start the fire. Husband and wife team, Jesse and Hannah, have been working together since 2011 when they started Spaulding International Cinema (SIC). SIC is a video production company, specializing in aerials and time-lapses. After being unsatisfied with the equipment they were using, Jesse designed and developed a camera stabilizer that gave them the smooth shots they sought. For the past two years, Jesse and Hannah have been manufacturing and selling this camera stabilizer called “The Ghost”. While SIC has been and continues to be a worthy venture, Jesse and Hannah have other passions rooted in local culture: cider. The Farm to Glass movement has inspired them to create a venue where they can serve the fruit of their labors to the community. Cheers!

Backroad Cider- We started hand picking, hand pressing our cider apples in October 2014, only the best. We pressed 4,000 lbs of Bitteroot Apples. Now they are coming out of maturation to be some of the finest ciders anywhere. The apple boom began in 1907, and continues today. Situated in between two mountain ranges, and the Bitterroot River flowing thru it, makes it ideal. Weather you are hiking, kayaking, fishing stop in and taste the Valley. All Local, All Montana
Last Chance Cider Mill and Pub- Located on the 22nd block of Historic Montana Avenue our establishment fills an expansive warehouse that has played host to many businesses including a tractor showroom and most recently United Glass. It was important to us to keep the rugged, industrial aesthetic while creating a comfortable experience for our guests. The showcase of our dining room is a floor to ceiling German-style fireplace that embodies the warmth and happiness we want our guests to enjoy. The rear (North-side) of our interior is the production facility - our cider mill. The key to great cider is using ripe, hand-picked fruit and we have a massive cooler full of it. We source our apples exclusively from Montana and Michigan and we consider them to be some of the best in the world. We press our apples on Wednesdays so come on down and watch the process; or better yet contact us here and schedule a time to come help yourself.
Coming Soon, 2017!
North Fork: Golden, gently bubbly, with true cider flavor. Expressive bittersweet apple character with wood, butter & grass notes; this semi-dry cider balances faintest sweetness against sharpness, astringency, and tart fruit.
|Darby Pub Cider- Semi-dry common-style. An approachable, effervescent cider made for sharing with friends. By coaxing subtle flavors from a blend of Bitterroot Valley apples through a gentle fermentation process, then adding back a bit of sweet juice, we created a fruit-forward experience perfect for drinking anytime. |
Small Batch Varietal - McIntosh : This year’s Small Batch features McIntosh, an heirloom variety widely grown in the Bitterroot Valley. It ferments to a medium-sweet cider with classic McIntosh apple flavors, fruity & tart, with cinnamon notes. In 1907, the Montana College of Agriculture decreed the Bitterroot Valley as the finest growing region in the world for the McIntosh apple (Ag Experiment Station, Bulletin 66). We think you’ll agree. Delightful on its own or paired with grilled pork or poultry. Alcohol content 5.5% by volume. Available only in 500ml bottles.
Western Cider- is Missoula, Montana's first cidery - set to open January 2017.Our venture into cider started in 2010 when Michael Billingsley was infected by an obsession with apples. He planted 2,500 cider apple trees in the Bitterroot Valley – just south of Missoula. He continued to plant hundreds of trees every year since - on his orchard and orchards throughout the valley. Now, he is finally in the process of using those apples, as well as apples from throughout Western Montana and neighboring Washington, to produce a unique line of ciders. As a company, Western Cider aspires to create an institution of great cider, good times and a life worth living in this far-flung region of the American West.

The Cyder Market hard cider information for cider makers and drinkers in Montana.
Montana is home to two major National Parks - Glacier and Yellowstone - and 54 state parks that connect visitors to history, culture, nature and water-based recreational sites. Montana with only eight registered apple orchards has seven hard apple cider makers.
Lockhorn Cider House- is a small, family-owned cidery. We specialize in crafting all-natural hard ciders of the highest quality.All of our ciders are certified organic, gluten- and sulfite-free, and have no added sugar. Our ciders run completely dry, meaning that they ferment completely, leaving no unfermented sugars. They preserve themselves naturally and we do not need to add sulfites or pasteurize like most other ciders that you’ll find on the shelf. Similar to wine, our cider ages with time, improving upon delicate and subtle flavors and aromas. At 6.9 percent alcohol, the first sip of Lockhorn cider has a bite, but the subtle, complex flavors resonate on the tongue, rather like wine.
