Wayside Cider- A small-batch craft cidery based in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains. From hand picking apples through to bottling our final product,we handle every stage of the process, including, of course, sharing a glass of our cider with friends. While our methods might take longer, so do all the best things in life. Our blend of wild, heirloom, and dessert apples merges past and present to create a uniquely Delaware County cider. Bucking the current cider trend of looking to Europe for inspiration and apple cultivars, we are focused on making modern American ciders that draw on the history and topography of the place where we live. We pick and graft the wild and abandoned trees with the aim of preserving the past while embracing modern production methods to produce a cider unique to this region. We have found the wild apples produce much less juice than their cultivated cousins, but we hope you will agree that the complexity and unique flavors of these little fellas make all the effort worthwhile.

THE CIDERS- 12 cider styles, to include:
|Captain Cooks Razz Ma Tazz- Light copper in color. The raspberry dominates the nose with apple aromas in the background. The carbonation level is moderate. Palate weight is medium with a residual sugar level of 3%. The apple aromas stay in the background throughout while the raspberry carries on thru the finish. This cider comes off as more fruit-sweet than sugar sweet.||Benjamins Best- Apple aromas in the nose with some hi-toned fruit sweetness. Fairly well carbonated with a light finish. The 3% residual sugar is well balanced by the carbonation level. The finish drops off nicely.||Founder's Reserve- This has a similar nose to Benjamin's Best but the apple aromas are more volatile. This tastes like a sweet apple pie. The fairly high residual sugar (5%) is attained by arresting the fermentation early. This level of sweetness from the glucose and fructose sugars (sweeter tasting thean surcrose) gives the cider moderate to heavy palate weight with a lower alcohol level (3.5%) This is certainly a crowd pleaser.|
|Apple Annie- Golden in the glass, with aromas of fermented fruit, this cider’s rich nose and full body is easy to drink with a soft bubble and rich aromas of apples||Fuzzy Peach- This thirst-quenching apple meets the fresh aromas of fuzzy peach - great for a beach day.||Crannie Apple Cranberry- This cider has a festive pink hue. Beginning with a sweet apple flavor and finishes with a burst of tart cranberry.|

Packbasket- sparkling cider, 100% wild seedling apple trees, Last season (2014) yielded a very light crop for wild apples and pears across Central New York. However, with a bit of luck we found one stand of wild trees in a high valley with a good crop. They must have been nipped by a spring frost some years back and not fruited until we stumbled upon them this season. These hidden trees were far enough from the dirt road that the only way we could harvest them was to haul them out on our backs. Hence the name, Packbasket!
Soundpost Cider- is made with a blend of American, English and French cider apples. Dabinet, Newtown Pippin, Ellis bitter, Brown Snout, Roxbury Russet.

Blue Barn Cidery- Crafting small-batch hard ciders made from 100% homegrown apples grown at Green Acre and West Wind Farms. This farm family's roots can be traced back to 1811, when Richard and Rhoda Wilder packed their things and traveled hundreds of miles from their farm in Vermont to start a new life in Churchville, New York, with their young son Alamander in tow. Today, Kathy and Craig’s daughter Jill and her husband, Jeremy Wolf, operate the family farms and continue the legacy that began more than two centuries ago. In 2017, the couple expanded the farm once again, delving into the hard cider industry with the establishment of Blue Barn Cidery at the West Wind Farm.

Oak and Apple Cidery- Christian Krapf of Rochester has been making cider in small batches at home for a decade, and, along with his wife, Christina, felt this was the time to expand into a bona fide business. “This is one of the first things we did together,” he said. “It’s our hobby and we want to make it our life.” The project, to be called Oak and Apple Cidery, would have a barn-like structure, including 2,600 square feet of space for manufacturing, a small tasting room and a connected outdoor deck area. Hard cider company coming soon!
Aaron Burr Cider- founded in 2008, "The Cidery" is a small operation providing the option for "true cider", the farm-style drink rooted in Colonial America. We are the growers, the millers and fermenters of organic apples; we will remain small to observe absolute control over the product and to satisfy our lofty standards. Other cider-makers may provide market-driven cider for less money but it is our role to reach the high-end of the drink by being true to cider as it exists in natural form. It all starts with the apples.
SlateStone Cider- is our “terroir” blend made from heirloom apples, fermented slow and cool, and bottled without filtration or preservatives. This cider is crisp and completely dry – with no residual sugars, it has aromas of russet green apples and limes, and can be paired with many different foods.

We believe a still cider is one of the truest expressions of fruit character and terroir and we couldn’t be happier with the result.|

Brooklyn Cider House- We’re from Brooklyn too, by way of Korea and Europe, but we discovered hard cider in the Basque Country in northern Spain. Every spring the cider there flows like water from casks the size of tanker trucks. It’s not just cider, it’s the most delicious cider there is. And it’s not just about the cider. It’s a party, a celebration of the harvest, and a time for friends to reconnect. ‘Wait a minute’, we thought, ‘We’re from the Big Apple, why don’t we have a cider party?’ So, we quit our jobs and went apple picking, literally. There were snowy days, angry farmers, and a lot of strange looks from our friends and family. Just about everyone we knew told us we were crazy. Maybe we are, but once you taste our ciders, you’ll see it was worth it. Making cider is not a path to riches but it is a path to enjoying life. All our ciders are born out of traditions from Spain, France, and America. They are made as naturally as possible from apples handpicked in upstate New York. Our apples are simply crushed and their juice left to ferment the same way the traditionalists do it in Europe and the way it used to be done in Brooklyn before the Temperance Movement ended the party.

Kite and String Cider at Good Life Farm- What does Kite & String mean? Where did your brand name come from? 'Kite' means light, playful, balanced, and fun. 'String' means grounded to a place, our small farm. Kite & String ciders are produced at Finger Lakes Cider House on our organic and diversified farm in Interlaken, NY. Why did you change your name? What happened to Good Life Cider? We always loved how the name "Good Life Cider" was grounded to Good Life Farm, but as we began to garner media attention and distribute our ciders widely, we encountered a company with a similar name, so we rebranded in 2017 to avoid confusion in the national marketplace. We're the same people in the same place producing our best orchard ciders as Kite & String.

Saratoga Apple- is a small farm and apple orchard located in Schuylerville, NY. We grow about 40 acres of apples, sweet & sour cherries, plums, peaches, nectarines, apricots, asparagus, raspberries, and quite a few vegetables. Along with the fruit, Nate Darrow’s family has been making and enjoying hard cider for personal consumption for as long as he can remember. Recently, a relative discovered and gave him several cases of the homemade beverage dating back to the early 1960s. Such products are available to the public at Darrow’s Saratoga Apple tasting room, located at his popular Route 29 roadside retail stand.
Dry Cider- This cider offers an 80% blend of bittersweet and bittersharp cider varieties and 20% of heirloom apples. Three separate lots were fermented and blended together with one tank going through a natural MLF. A secondary fermentation was achieved in the bottle for carbonation, by bottling before fermentation was complete.
|“Dry Hopped” Cider- 85% American Heirlooms. Equal parts of the four estate grown hops including Kent Golding, Fuggles, Cascade and an unknown noble hop were added at the end of fermentation for 6 days.

Blackduck Cidery- Our family has been growing fruit in the Finger Lakes region of New York for over a decade. We have sold fresh fruit using organic standards through farmer’s markets, restaurants, natural groceries and our farm stand while patiently waiting to bring our cidery to fruition. Patiently would clearly be an exaggeration of our dispositions. We have finally arrived at the place we envisioned many years ago. It was a hard dirty slog, but it was all worth it. We hope you agree! The ciders come from blends of apples grown here in our orchards. We use native yeast and take a hands off minimalist approach to fermentation. We never add sugar, fine or filter our cider. We let the fruit speak for itself and variation from season to season should be expected in the finished beverages.
|Catskill (Semi-Dry Barrel Aged Blend)- Ciders aged in oak bourbon barrels from a local micro-distillery lend a rich complexity to this blend, mellowing the bite of the cider with notes of vanilla. ||Half-Wild (Semi-Sweet)- This cider draws a full, tart character from its high proportion of wild apples, allowing it to hold up well to some additional sweetness. ||Dry Town- is an honest, earthy, aromatic cider-quaffable, but full bodied enough to be enjoyed with food. This wild apple blend includes some magnificent little crab apples that lends this, still, dry cider a little zing. |

McKenzie’s Hard Cider- is a creation started in 2011 by Lenny Ciolek, a 35-year veteran of the beverage industry who began his career at an upstate NY distributor and driving a keg truck while in college. Through the years, Ciolek then held a number of other responsibilities including (but not limited to) Regional Manager, Brand Team Director, and National Accounts & Trade Development Director. Lenny Ciolek’s extensive experience in the beverage industry kept him up-to-date on trends in markets and sales. He noticed consumer trends beginning to shift away from traditional malt beverages and start exploring other options. This combined with the explosion of micro/craft beer brands had Ciolek looking for what the next possible alternative “hot” category might be. Though cider had a very small base, he could sense the opportunities after seeing continued growth with very little competition. Ciolek’s experience in the beverage industry combined with the 160-years of cider producing from the Mayer Brothers in West Seneca NY, has made McKenzie’s the favorite among consumers in New York and many other U.S. markets.
Thirsty Owl Wine Company- The history of the Thirsty Owl Wine Company began when Ted W. Cupp purchased 150 acres from Robert and Mary Plane on July 2, 2001 and established Wesley Wine Company. During the fall and winter of 2001 - 2002, construction began on both the tasting room and the wine making facility. The following spring (2002), with Shawn Kime as its first employee, work began on the lake vineyard located between the tasting room and the lake. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Pinot Noir, and Malbec were planted in this vineyard. On Friday September 13, 2002, The Thirsty Owl Wine Company opened its doors for the first time with Mary Dauber managing the tasting room. We had four wines and produced approximately 1,200 cases. Since 2002 we have increased production by over 1000% and at the same time The Thirsty Owl Wine Company's name has become synonymous with award winning wines.
Tory Kicker Cider at Green Wolf Brewing- is an artisanal cider, grown and hand-crafted in the farthest northern reaches of the Catskill Mountains.

The next year, we opened our first tasting room on the North Fork of Long Island in Mattituck, NY.

Bottled with a cap, the cider is designed to age in the bottle. With clean, fresh apple nose, the body and color are both light and Prosecco-like. Younger bottles focus on fresh apple skin, while older bottles develop a creamy texture with a toasty apple taste and underlying notes of Pecorino and Gorgonzola Dolce.
|Gold Label Hard Cider- is created from the best heritage varietal apples at Soons Orchard. Vinified using méthode champenoise and bottled with a champagne stopper and cage, the results are semi-sweet, balanced, and crystal clear.

Old Marauder- combines attributes of McIntosh, Cortland, Ida Red and Jonagold apple varieties to create a hard cider that gives off crisp apple notes with a clean finish. Because it has no residual sugar, it complements a wide range of foods.
The first release in The Crab Series, this is a unique dry cider. It expresses flavors from three different crabapple varieties, balanced out with the sweetness of Tolman Sweet and mildness of Rome Beauty apples. It has a dark golden color and a flavor that lingers as you drink it. A nice amount of tannins and balanced acidity make this the cider makers’ drink of choice.
|The Batch- The town of Williamson's own McIntosh, Empire, Ida Red & Jonagold make up the entirety of this cider. Categorized as semi-sweet with a fresh apple aroma followed by a juicy, ripe apple finish make it hard to resist reaching for another.||The Pippin- semi-dry cider is made with Cox Orange Pippin, Newtown Pippin, Green Winter Pippin and Rome Beauty apples. The result is a hard cider with nice fruit flavors and a clean finish that make it easy to reach for a second glass. |
Star Cider- our company has deep roots in cider-making, going back several generations. We have found that the cider-making tradition brings people together in the Fall to pick, press, drink fresh cider and ferment the rest. What started as a long-time hobby and tradition each Fall slowly expanded. A few carboys evolved into making hundreds of gallons in our basement. We finally decided to truly take a stab at sharing our love of fermentation and our delicious product and started Star Cider. Our goal is to produce premium artisanal hard cider with locally-sourced, all natural ingredients grown in New York State while adhering to environmentally conscious business practices. We are currently selling our cider through restaurants, bars, and markets throughout New York while we try to find the perfect location for our tasting room and retail facility.

Eastern Dry Hard Cider- barely-sweet, light and refreshing. It's inspired by the dry ciders from the orchards of the east of England, where the style of cider is traditionally clear, light and almost wine-like. Just like those English ciders, our Eastern Dry is made from a secret blend of dessert apples, but grown and freshly-pressed here in the Empire State to provide a uniquely clean and sharp flavor.
Hibiscus Ginger- As a result, inside this bottle you’ll find 750ml of liquid gusto – a delightfully piquant, refreshingly tasty, beautifully rosy-hued, impossible-to-resist hard cider. We tint our cider naturally by steeping it with dried hibiscus calyces and, for a dash of zing, we lightly infuse it with freshly peeled and sliced ginger root.
Lavender Hops- Think of lavender and you imagine rows of sun-kissed purple, with a gentle scent of Mediterranean summer evenings. Our Lavender Hops is created to capture the same sensation of warm, fragrant summertime. We infuse our traditional hard cider with a secret blend of hops and sweet lavender. This adds a mildly bitter complexity which, together with the citrus and floral undertones, combines to produce a unique flavour. Like a summer evening, Lavender Hops is mellow - perfect for cider and beer drinkers alike.
THE CIDERS- 14 cider styles, to include:
|Five Point- Our flagship cider. Made from a special blend of bittersweet and dessert apples locally grown in NY. This cider has perfect balance of acidity, tannin, and sweetness. ||Ginger- Bright and bubbly, this cider is blended with fresh ginger root. Ginger aroma and flavor is balanced nicely with light acidity and sweetness.||Hip Hopped- This cider is blended with a mixture of locally grown hops from Pedersen Hop Farms.

The Blue Toad- was conceived in 2013 in the back of a cold garage in Scottsville, New York, by three childhood friends — Todd Rath, Scott Hallock and Greg Booth — who share a common upbringing and a common desire to consume high-quality alcoholic beverages. Their all-natural hard cider uses only locally grown Western New York apples. Rather than solely using European-style tart and bitter apples, Blue Toad uses a cider blend of three different apples grown and pressed at Schutt's Apple Mill in Webster. The production takes place in its cidery at the Genesee Regional Market, which includes a tasting room. Old-school values, new-world sensibilities. Born in a barn, Blue Toad Cider honors the tradition and legacy of America’s first beverage.

Abandoned Hard Cider- After a chance meeting between two hobby cider makers in 2015, and a couple of years of geeking out together, Eric and Martin joined forces to create Abandoned Hard Cider. Those first ciders from Martin's old abandoned trees from his 100-acre property were the foundation of the Abandoned Hard Cider vision. After many conversations and tastings, Eric and Martin went to work building the foundation of what is now the first Farm Cidery in the Sullivan County Catskills. In 2017 with a license in hand we went to work harvesting and pressing our first vintage.

Little Apple Farm- in Hillsdale, New York is a 300-tree orchard operated by Ron Bixby and his wife Alanne Baerson since 1980. The Roe Jan Independent profiled them in a 1987 article that described how to restore an old apple orchard…basically hard work and a lot of love. Ron comes from an apple growing family in, where else, Appleton, Wisconsin. The farm went organic in the 1990s. Organic doesn’t mean no spray. Ron explains that unlike non-organic orchards, only certified organic materials are used at Little Apple Farm, such as sulfur, calcium, clay, even seaweed and baking powder, rather than toxic insecticides and fungicides. “It’s expensive and time consuming, and thats why so few organic apples are on the market,” according to Ron. Hard cider, more specifically “Cidre fermier” small batch traditional sparkling farm cider wine, has a long tradition at the farm, and now not just for home consumption. Tasting room located at the Hudson-Chatham Winery.

We do not use store bought juice or concentrate. Our cider is 100% made by us, from start to finish. First, we buy our apples directly from local NY state farmers.

Westwind Orchard and Cidery- Cider’s roots are deep. Deep in a European tradition that long ago came to America, only to be interrupted by thirteen years of Prohibition in the early 20th century. While new American cider traditions are measured in years or decades, Europeans have cider traditions that stretch back uninterrupted for centuries. Its only in the last few years that American ciders have resurfaced with a new sense of purpose. We may be new, but we learn fast. Borrowing from those old European cider traditions, Westwind Orchard began tinkering with its own style of cider about four or five years ago. Most of our orchards are comprised of some pretty standard northeast US apple varieties, like McIntosh and Stayman. But, like just like ‘old vine’ vineyards the trees have only gotten better with age allowing us to make some pretty incredible ciders with what was already growing here. Add in some newer characters like GoldRush and raspberries, and some traditional and wild cider apples, and we’re sailing into uncharted waters. After a few years of figuring out our cider direction, we starting working with Andy Brennan – of Aaron Burr Cidery – to work out the kinks and put the finishing touches on our ciders. Where we’ve landed is pretty impressive and something we’re very proud of.

2 Way Brewing Company- is a micro craft brewery and bar located in Beacon, NY. Opened September, 2014, 2 Way Brewing produces the highest quality handmade beers in the Hudson Valley. The name was inspired by its location on the “two way” river. The river, which is technically an estuary, was called the Muhheakantuck, or “river that flows both ways” by the Lenape tribe who inhabited the lower Hudson River Valley when the Europeans arrived.
Kettleborough Cider House- The name "Kettleborough" comes from the moniker of the original settlement of the area where the cidery is now located. Kettleborough was inhabited by the LeFevre family whose descendants still live in the New Paltz area. The old Kettleborough School House still stands adjacent to the orchard that has since been planted on their land. Kettleborough Cider House was founded in 2011 by Tim Dressel. The Dressel Family has been growing apples in New Paltz for four generations, beginning with Tim's Great-Grandfather Fred Dressel in 1923. After graduating from Cornell University in 2007, Tim returned to the family business and still works there full-time. Kettleborough Cider House was born out of his love of horticulture, farm business, and oenology (wine-making). Coming from our apple-growing heritage, we know that great hard cider begins with great apples. Therefore, we have begun planting nearly-extinct varieties of apples that are better suited for hard cider production than your typical grocery store varieties.
Kettleborough Brut Cider- Intense apple aroma, lightly sparkling. Crisp acidity, off-dry to dry, would play well w/ most food pairings. 22oz bottle, 8% ABV.

It's a cider that will appeal to IPA-lovers and casual drinkers alike!|

Scrumpy Ewe- We make some of our ciders akin to a fine wine, in laboratory-like controlled settings. A juice that is bright, clean and acidic, pitched with a champagne yeast in stainless steel tanks at specific temperatures, filtered and forced carbonated. On the other hand, we also make ciders in the age-old farmhouse tradition - where wild yeasts work in tandem with brettanomyces stains. In these ciders, nature does most of the work as its slow ferments in our French and American white oak barrels. These unfiltered scrumpy ciders appeal to the farmhouse crowd who doesn't mind getting their taste buds a bit dirty! Regardless of the cider making method we employ in a given batch, one thing is for certain: our ciders come from the juice of 100% pressed, New York State grown apples. Never from concentrate.

Fishkill Farms- founded Treasury Cider in 2016 on the belief that outstanding cider starts in the orchard, not in the cidery. Eco Apple certified and grown exclusively at Fishkill Farms, Treasury apples reflect the Hudson Valley climate and mineral-rich soils from which they come. They are pressed and then fermented slowly at cool temperatures, with little filtration, to create a character-rich drink, rooted in the American cider-making tradition. Fishkill Farms is a historic apple orchard that has been in the Morgenthau family for nearly 100 years. After leasing the farm to outside management for a period, Robert and Josh Morgenthau, the second and third generation of the farm family, took the operation back in 2007. Soon, a team began to develop, and Josh took over management of the farm. With the hard work and dedication of the team, Fishkill Farms has grown from a conventionally farmed apple orchard in need of new trees and new tractors, into a diversified, ecological farm with new orchards and infrastructures.
Original Stump Blower (OSB) Ciderworks- we are an Upstate NY craft ciderworks, owned and operated by siblings Elise Barnard and Eric Smith. Our name pays homage to our father and his late uncle. Back in the day they hid their homemade hard cider from Aunt Bobby, in stumps. The phrase "let's go blow up some stumps" became code for backyard swilling because the cider was so strong it could blow up stumps. We make a variation of this cider in-house and think fond thoughts of Uncle Charie everytime we talk about it. We utilize NY apples, as well as other local ingredients to ferment tasty libations for locals and cider enthusiasts alike. In our gift shop you will find goods that are printed by local companies and art made by talented people from the surrounding areas.

Penning Cidery- Our agricultural roots go back to the Netherlands with dairy and tulip farming. Grandpa Jake came over to the United States from Holland as a tulip bulb salesman when he was 18. Soon after arriving he met Grandma Johanna, together they raised a family of ten (Marie, Joanne, Jack, Adrian, Dick, Chris, Steph, Mike, Steve and Adrianne) and successfully operated several dairy farms across Warwick. Jack, the oldest brother, bought the orchard we're at today about forty years ago. He asked his youngest brother, our dad Steve, to join him in partnership and the evolution to what the farm market and orchard are today began. Our parents, Steve and Jill developed the business as it is today- the farm to table restaurant and pub, beer garden, garden center and ice cream parlor with the goal to always have something for everyone to have a good time at the farm. Now, we (Tori and Stephen, Jake and Johanna's youngest grandkids) are back from college and ready to start a new venture on the farm. With the guidance of our parents we're excited to make great hard apple cider from our trees! So come on down to the farm and cidery and try out some of our delicious, hand crafted ciders that we are extremely excited to share with everyone.

In 1997, Original Sin’s founder, Gidon Coll, set out on a mission to create a great American cider, both dry and natural.

Today, you can find Original Sin's unique, award-winning ciders in over 30 states, as well as overseas in the U.K. and Japan.

Eve’s Cidery- the sun comes up, the sun sets, the rains come and go and the cold and the heat rotate around the years. And that is as it has been for thousands of years here in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. Somewhere, on the side of one of those hill sits our little cider orchard. Sometimes, we marvel at our hard work: “I grafted those thousand trees, I grew those apples, I built that barn, I put up that trellis.” There is honed skill and hard labor involved in growing a crop, and making good cider. But in end, what makes what we do worth doing is a sense of the magic: in leaves absorbing sunlight, roots seeking minerals, raptors hunting mice and apples in the fall. Here is a vintage of cider, which will never be repeated, reflecting the lives of trees in this one spot for this one year. Here are ciders that are elegant, feral, and mischievous. Here are ciders that surprise and transcend. We hope you enjoy them.

Abandon Brewing Company- is focused on providing interesting and creative beers supported by great service. Abandon provides families and friends a relaxed atmosphere within an early 1800's reconditioned barn, on a hill overlooking Keuka Lake. We work diligently on a daily basis to accomplish our goals of good beer, good setting and stellar service. The brewery started as a mutual agreement of providing excellent farmstyle beers in the barn on working farm setting. The barn has been outfitted with original and handcrafted wood while the required building corrections were crafted and fitted by local Mennonite carpenters and builders. Geothermal energy is used to heat the brewing and fermentation area of the brewery while it also cools the glycol used in temperature control of fermentation. A pavilion and out building have been added to host and support weddings and other large outdoor events.

Blissful Moon- We named this authentic, hand crafted hard cider after Solomon Bliss, the original owner of the farm.

Sauvage Beverages- From a tree to your glass. One word makes our world turn around: apple. One of the most ancient, emblematic, popular and healthy fruits on earth, apple - in the form of hard cider - was a staple of the early American diet, served at the colonial table morning, noon and night. Influenced by French techniques applied in the Champagne region, we marry tradition and innovation to offer a range of all-natural apple-based sparkling wines and spirits. Our brand-new farm distillery is nestled in Oneonta, a vibrant small town in Upstate New York, in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains along the banks of the Susquehanna River. With direct access to 24 varieties of delicious apples growing in the nearby region’s orchards, we produce a local, fresh, crisp and tasty juice, fermented with champagne yeast. This proprietary recipe becomes our signature base for our unique line of apple based products.

Metal House Cider- We start with apples sourced entirely from historic Hudson Valley orchards and our own reinvigorated family orchard in Esopus, NY. After having sweat the apples for a spell, we press on our handmade rack-and-cloth press. Initial fermentation takes place in glass and stainless steel, and then rests through the winter in our steel clad cider house – the metal house! We blend in the spring, and start a new tirage using champagne yeast, nutrients and sugar to restart the fermentation process. We bottle immediately and then lay the bottles horizontally for a minimum of six months, allowing the second fermentation to proceed slowly, and imparting an optimal effervescence to each one. But good things take time. From the sustainably grown apples we pick, to the way in which we ferment, to the time we allow it to bottle condition, we work for it … and wait for it. Toil, love and time.

Mayers Lake Ontario Winery and Cider Mill- was built by Perry Langdon in 1835, he later, in 1876, sold the property to Donat Mayer. Donat Mayer was a farmer who made apple cider by pressing his excess apples. This started a trend with the neighbors. In 1904 Donat Mayer Jr. purchased the farm from his father. Donat Mayer Jr started the making of donuts, later passing down the farm and tradition to his son Harvey Mayer. In 1962 David Bower bought the Cider Mill and Barns from Harvey Mayer. David Bower Sr. kept the tradition alive as well as the name. The Cider Mill still operates today and the Donuts are made fresh every day in the same way. Since the Mill was bought, the Bower Family has added a couple traditions of their own, including fudge, cookies, and specialty ciders, and there is the addition of the wine tasting room on the side of the barn exactly where the kids used to play. In addition to their time old traditions, the Bower Family added the home beer and wine making retail store.

|Hedgerow- New York Cider Company’s widest blend ever, celebrates that philosophy. In creating this complex, very dry cider, we picked more than 40 different heirloom and wild apples from abandoned orchards, farmyards, and even hedgerows. (A particular small yellow russet in this blend was scavenged from a secret hedgerow seedling near our New York Finger Lakes farm.) Given the fine fruit and our belief in traditional cider making, we thought natural fermentation and bottle conditioning were the best way to let them—and nature—speak for themselves. There’s a lot going on in the Hedgerow. See what you think. Enjoy cool.||Ithaca Sharp- is New York Cider Company’s crispest, driest hard cider, refreshingly tart, with almost no residual sugar. We picked the fruit from rescued 125- to 150-year-old heirloom Newtown Pippins and other trees we hold dear. These craggy antiques are remnants of the original orchard that once graced our 1820s farm in the New York Finger Lakes. Ithaca Sharp is fermented naturally, allowing wild yeasts to impart their own unique, complex flavors. Effervescence develops spontaneously in the bottle. The evidence is the sediment at the bottom.||Barn Swallow- In keeping with traditional cider-making techniques, we fermented the cider naturally, allowing the native yeasts living on the fruit and in the orchard to impart their own complex, often unpredictable, flavors. One of those yeasts—Brettanomyces (Brett, for short)—imparts many of the pleasant wild and funky notes you taste in New York Cider Company’s Barn Swallow. |
Hudson Valley, New York
Phonograph Cider- Excellent fruit is the most essential element of great cider. Upstate New York has had apple orchards for hundreds of years and the glacial soils and temperate climate is well-suited to growing apples with great flavor. The cool nights, especially in the autumn, allow the apples to ripen slowly and to keep the great flavors that they developed throughout the growing season. Notable American cider apple varieties originating in Upstate NY include Golden Russet and Northern Spy. Phonograph cider comes from a traditional winemaking approach with some contemporary cidermaking techniques woven in. The fruit is pressed fresh in the fall at peak ripeness and fermented in the Fingerlakes town of Romulus during the cool autumn and winter. The dry ciders are then immediately fermented and the Medium ciders undergo an ice-cider technique by freezing some of the unfermented juice before primary fermentation to produce a finished cider that is balanced both in acidity and residual apple sugar. No sugar is added.

New York Cider Company- located in the Finger Lakes Region, crafts unique hard ciders using interesting and ripe New York State heirloom and wild apples. We believe in sustainable farming methods and traditional cider-making techniques. At New York Cider Company, appreciate the simplicity of traditional cider craft. We believe that much of the art of cider making involves helping nature, the best artist, do the work itself. Often this means staying out of the way: Our apple trees, some more than 125 years old, are nurtured by little more than sun, rain, and a sprinkle of compost. Our apples—whether we grow them ourselves or forage them from wild or abandoned trees near our farm in the New York Finger Lakes—are always interesting and picked at peak ripeness. Similarly, our ciders are fermented naturally, without added yeast, whenever possible. “Wild” fermentations can be riskier; you never know how the natural yeasts will affect the final taste of a hard cider. To us, the rewards of wild fermentation are a worthwhile gamble. Each carboy, barrel, tank, or vat of cider truly takes on a life—and flavors—of its own. Yeast is alive, after all; each strain has a different personality. Each hard cider is a separate conversation.

Embark Craft Ciderworks at Lagoner Farms- Farmers first and foremost, we’ve been growing great tasting apples since 1909. Embark Craft Ciderworks was founded by apple growers, passionate about farming and showcasing unique flavor profiles in craft ciders. As farmers first and foremost, we know it’s the quality and uniqueness of the apples we use that make a great cider. We trust the apples (and in some cases, other fruits and natural ingredients) to provide the exceptional flavor you’ve come to love. No artificial ingredients needed. We’re passionate about the local food movement—the power of food allows us to create the total cider experience. We take the freshest ingredients right from our field and combine them with other quality ingredients from local sources to create cheese and charcuterie boards as well as lunch and dinner options for you to enjoy while you drink. Our portfolio is continually growing and many heirloom and Old World apple varieties have been planted specifically for use by Embark Craft Ciderworks. Expect to see new blended and single varietals released as we cultivate just the right apples to become the next Embark Craft ciders.
Black Diamond Hard Cider- Black Diamond Cider was started in 2014 by Jackie and Ian Merwin, owners of Black Diamond Farm, a family-owned orchard on the west slope of Cayuga Lake in Upstate NY. We grow all of the fruit that goes into our ciders. The orchard contains over 100 varieties of apples and pears many of the rare heirlooms and European varieties selected especially for their cider making qualities. Along with the help of a few dedicated employees, family members and friends, the farm has been producing high quality heirloom, modern and European hard cider apple varieties for over two decades. Although we only recently began producing hard cider commercially, cider making has been a passion of Jackie and Ian’s for more than 30 years. Despite our small size, we’re growing some of the most exciting new varieties and many treasured ‘heritage’ apple varieties. Practicing IFP (Integrated Fruit Production), we take pride in producing high quality fruit selected for excellent and unusual tastes. There’s a small section of the orchard devoted to antique Fench and English apples grown for traditional hard cider blends. They have great names like Brown Snout, Foxwhelp, Fillbarrel, Magog Redstreak, etc. They’re not for eating fresh, but for great hard ciders they’re the best.
Grisamore Ciderworks- The fifth generation of the Grisamore Family lives on our farm. The Grisamores moved from the Chicago area in 1927. Maurice, Else, and Else's mother Renata Koch came to Locke, New York to live on this farm. Maurice was a conductor on the New York Central Railroad and one of his co-workers bought a farm nearby. They started with a dairy in the early days. In 1975 we planted our apple orchard and opened our farm store. The farm store has evolved a long way too since it beginning as a dairy barn. The back portion of the farm store was just rebuilt. New construction started in April 2000. It now houses the new cooler and the cider press. There is a lot of extra space in our barn for new projects.
|Dry Hard Cider- Fresh pressed New York apples. Naturally gluten free.

|Hop Harvest Cider- Hard cider dry-hopped with full cone freshly harvested Crystal and Columbus hops yielding a citrusy lemon-lime flavor.||Pruimenboom Cider- A harvest cider blended with pan-roasted Italian plums. Savory and full-bodied, dry apple with earthy sweet-tart plum.||Catcher In the Rye Barrel Cider- Dry hard apple cider aged in rye whiskey barrels.|
Mamakating Hollow- Lower in carbonation, relatively clean and clear. Medium-light gold color, and hazy. Nose is Autumnal. Maybe a little farmy. But otherwise clean. Lower acid than previous years but the blueberry note is back. It’s more of a bittersweet toward the end. The final note is decidedly tannin.
|Neversink Highlands- Higher carbonation with aggressive bubbles (chill overnight.) Sediment is both solid and hazy. Honey color. Nose is fruity, maybe a barn whiff sneaks up, but I consider it clean. The cider starts bright but the acid fades into sweet fruit. Soft tannin at the end, it’s a well rounded cider but has less body, less density than our other ciders. As such, probably a better compliment to food. |
East Branch- Again East Branch seems built for age. Everything I recall about the cider last year is there again: The bittersweet base, the density of color and flavor, and a slight British barnyard nose (considered a “flaw” in the States! Awww, so sad.) All I can say is Great Expectations.
Shawangunk Ridge- We aren’t going to sell it this year because we bottled it too early and it’s over-carbonated. But many of the tasters who’ve waited for the gushing to settle agree: it’s fantastic. I gave it an “A”. But it’s too carbonated. CSA members will get a bottle or two but its’ fate will be as the starter culture for the 2016’s.
|Callicoon Creeks- Cloudy, thick sediment. Deep golden color. Low-medium carbonation. Barny nose. Good acidity surprisingly lasts the full pallet -It’s more of a sweet-tart though. And a good tannin structure too. I think most people would agree it tastes very French. Source: North and East Branch of the Callicoon Creeks. Abandoned cider-mill country, for sure.||Central Sullivan- Bits of sediment but less than our usual. Hazy yellow color. Medium-high carbonation. Nose is clean, or slightly British or fruity. Slow acid start, candy flowers, apples, then medium tannin sensation. Fantastic overall experience. My highest grade. |

|The Disturbance- is a combination of a 20% wild ferment and an 80% inoculated ferment. The result is a natural cider with a seriously sour presentation not unlike a tart lemonade. The majority of the cider was inoculated with Monastery Ale yeast and blended with a wild fermented Golden Russet/Ashmead Kernel blend. The resulting cider is in the Spanish style that is smooth, yet tart in mouthfeel.||Cidre de la Porte- pays tribute to our French and Canadian Ancestry that emigrated to the US from New France under the name LaPorte dit Sorel. After Primary Fermentation, the cider is racked into freshly dumped Portuguese Ruby Port Barrels. The final cider picks up the wine flavor of the Ruby Port while remaining in the dry category. At 10% Alcohol by Volume, this cider is very smooth and has slightly less alcohol content than the Oak Spirits Collection.||This is the 2018, Third Reserve Batch of Oaky Dody- After primary fermentation, the cider is racked into freshly dumped Kentucky Bourbon Barrels where the unique flavor of the Bourbon is added to the cider. Prior to bottling, the cider is aged for a number of months to allow the higher alcohol content to mellow.|
|Smoky Dody- is the Fourth Reserve Batch in the Oak Spirits Collection. This is a truly unique blend that will appeal to not only lovers of Islay Scotch, but anyone who likes a good bar-b-que. Smoky Dody is racked into freshly dumped Laphroaig® Barrels. These barrels are the most richly pleated barrels available on the market and impart a unique smoky flavor that cannot be achieved in any other way. If you are looking for a truly unique cider, Smoky Dody creates a unique niche among American Ciders.||Patriots' Cider- is the Fifth Reserve Batch in the Oak Spirits Collection. This is a truly Colonial cider made from fresh apples and maple syrup and aged in freshly dumped Caribbean Rum Barrels. The Rum flavor is more subtle than the other varieties of bourbon and scotch barrels, but blends well with apple flavor of the base cider. This cider has a slightly higher acid content and a more full flavor from the tannin in the Harry Masters Jersey apples.||An Doras- is the Sixth Reserve Batch in the Oak Spirits Collection. "An Doras" is Scots Gaelic for the Founder's name: LaPorte (meaning "The Door"). After Primary Fermentation, the cider is racked into freshly dumped Speyside Single Malt barrels from Scotland. This cider has the strongest overtones of Scotch Whiskey in the Oak Spirits Collection. This cider begs the drinker to enjoy a fine cigar alongside the ice cold mug of refreshment.|
Thin Man Brewery- Western New York has long been a birthplace of invention. The grain elevator. The streetlight. The pacemaker. The crash test dummy. Created in 1949 by Cornell Aeronautical Laboratory (now Calspan), the Thin Man was the precursor to the modern crash test dummy and a catalyst for higher standards in the transportation industry. He quickly became the muse for our brewery venture—symbolizing the ingenuity, innovation and commitment to quality that have always had a home in this region. Thin Man Brewery strives to continue this progressive and pioneering spirit as we set out to become the new face of brewing while satisfying the foodie within. We will create the unexpected. We will continue to grow and evolve. We will create quality for anyone that is looking for what’s next.
Seed and Stone Cidery- is an Urban Cidery located in the City of Rochester, New York. We are dedicated cidermakers creating small batch traditional ciders from exceptional apples from local orchards in Upstate NY. Our ciders are a fresh alternative to many of the "commercial ciders" that often contain concentrates, water, artificial flavors, food coloring, corn syrup, malic acid, and carbon dioxide. Our ciders take many months to slowly ferment to bring out the natural properties and goodness of apples. We respect the apples and the process. We spend months tasting, smelling and watching our ciders as they age. When the cider is ready, we then bottle or keg where it will then undergo a natural finishing process "bottle conditioning". Ciders handcrafted in centuries of old traditions is our goal for the ultimate cider drinking experience.

A dry cider aged in Kentucky bourbon barrels that highlights the smokey, vanilla flavors of bourbon and the crisp flavor of Chmplain Valley apples. |
Double Tap Strawberry- is made from a mixture of Macintosh, Spartan and Macomb apples infused with a hint of strawberry sweetness. Excently crafted to be the perfect blend of tart apple and sweetness.

|Mountain Berry- A sweet cider blended with Strawberry, Blackberry and Raspberry to create a lovely, fruit forward cider.|
|2017 Floral Terranes Cider, “Outlands”- This is a collection of the moraine sites, running along the north shore Long Island. The most integrated of all the ciders, this is in turns funky, earthy and saline (is it too much to project the salinity of the Long Island sound into this cider? probably), yet also clean and driving. Not too lush, not too cut – really lovely balance and energy.||2017 Floral Terranes Cider, Restoration Farm- Much different, wilder than the “Outlands,” the Restoration Farm is much more explosive, vivid, showing an almost technicolor green nose – some implausible combination of sea salt, lime zest, granny smith apple and wild flowers. On the palate, it is denser than you might expect, a bit meatier with riper stone fruits and a sort of suave, rounded acidity. ||2017 Floral Terranes Cider, Rosemary Farm (Seminary) - An absolutely exuberant nose, again, reverberating with that wiley green nose similar to the Restoration Farm (above) – maybe a bit more green, more herbal, with spearmint, anise, fennel and a bunch of shit I’m too old to identify. The palate is really where the difference is, vis-à-vis the Restoration. The Rosemary Farm is much sharper, the acidity is more palpable and direct. If the Restoration is a bit more Burgundy, slinky and sexy, the Rosemary Farm is Riesling, sharp and cutting.|
Draft Hard Apple- This cider is semi-dry and wonderfully effervescent with a remarkably fresh apple nose. Its crisp, fruit forward taste and a clean, refreshing finish, have won our cider countless awards and praise.
Draft Hard Pear- A traditional cider hand crafted from a select blend of apples and pears. Intense aromas of ripened pear dance from the glass. The taste is light and crisp with a clean, dry finish.
Draft Hard Raspberry- Fresh raspberries are added to Doc's Draft Hard Apple Cider and re-fermented to create a delicious spin on traditional cider. We think you'll agree that you can really taste the fresh fruit used in making this cider.
Draft Hard Pumpkin- A seasonal cider made with roasted pumpkins, cinnamon, allspice, fresh ginger and nutmeg.
Draft Hard Cassis Cider- A unique, hand-crafted black currant hard cider, made from pressed NY state apples and fresh black currants.

|Stone Fort Reserve- A blend of our orchard’s no-spray, non-fertilized apples, and various wild and feral apples foraged from the surrounding woods. A good measure of wild russets impart a bitter-sharp smack. Stone Fort is about twenty-five percent forage.||Wild Forage- Simply, this cider is pressed from wild apples we have foraged while wandering the northern Catskill Mountains with a burlap sack. It’s how we started, and to this day it’s still our favorite method of crafting cider. |
|Oak Barrel Aged- This may sound novel, but it’s anything but. A few years back, we noticed something: nearly all cider throughout history was fermented in oak barrels. Since our forefathers didn’t have stainless steel tanks, or HDPE plastic vessels, oak barrels were just as much a part of cider as apples and alcohol. We believe that in order to truly experience what our forefathers were drinking back in the day — when patriots like the Adams Brothers got cidered up and head-butted the nearest Lobster-Back — there needs to be some toasted American White Oak involved.||Honey Hopped- Our handcrafted cider meets locally grown, organic, NY State Hops, and is back-blended with a touch of our farm’s raw honey — the very honey collected in the pollination of the apple trees from which we press our cider. Pretty much, it’s cider’s entire life cycle in your glass. The hops not only provide a cannabis aroma and a piney top-note, but they help to stabilize the cider, allowing us to crash fermentation a little bit early, leaving some of the honey unfermented.|
