Pennsylvania is the birthplace of commercial oil production, thanks to Colonel Edwin L. Drake. Specifically looking for oil, Drake drilled the first commercially productive oil well in Titusville, PA in 1859, launching a global industry upon which most of our modern lives depend. Pennsylvania was also home to Ben Franklin, one of the most famous cider drinkers in colonial America, and to over 120 registered apple orchards today. Making Pennsylvania a great state for taking the cider trail to discover excellent local hard ciders with its 49 cider makers.

|Spice- Hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice blend perfectly reminding you of your favorite cold weather treats. A touch of brown sugar in the finish adds just a tiny bit of sweetness for balance with notes of molasses and raisons. We let the apples shine as the highlight of Spice by keeping the seasonal additions light but noticeable and not overpowering. ||Earth- 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.||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.|
|Farm- Created in the light of traditional European farmhouse ciders, Farm is funky and tart. We use a special blend of cultured and wild yeast to make this cider standout. Farm has notes of straw, hay, honeysuckle, white grapes, and green apples. Similar to most of our other ciders, Farm is fermented completely dry and not back sweetened. ||Viejo- 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. |

Young American Hard Cider- Hard Cider crafted from local, fresh, organic apple juice. From September to May, we gather fresh pressed juice and ferment cider using the same process used by the early American settlers who inspired our name. Over the course of several months, our aging process yields a wide range of palate pleasing flavor combinations such as Tart Cherry, Bourbon Barrel Aged, and Ginger. This is just the beginning of the possible cider varieties and complex flavors that can be explored in one of the world’s oldest fermented beverages. Using the same process that early settlers of the United States would have used, we were inspired to call ourselves Young American.

Civil War Cider- Civil War Cider is located in the Historic District of downtown Lewisburg, PA. We are the only producer of artisinal cider and mead in Union County. We make Civil War styled ciders and experiment with new ciders. Several of our ciders are aged in Oak Whiskey Barrels and served straight from the barrel! Seasonal ciders are made in clay jugs or in glass - just as our ancestors did during the Civil War. Bushel & Barrel, our cider-pub venue, is a watering hole popular amongst seekers of unique ciders, high quality beverages, and dedicated drink craftsmen. We source all of our apples within a 50 mile radius of the cider pub. Some of the juice we purchase direct from the growers, other times we use an antique press to squeeze the juice from apples. All apples are picked from the tree to ensure fresh and sediment free juice. Our ciders are both still or bubbly, bone dry to mild sweetness, fresh and bright to tart and aged.
|Modern Still- Aromas of bright fruit and floral notes with balanced acidity that finishes clean. Fermented from a blend of sweets and tarts pressed by Kauffman’s Fruit Farm in Lancaster County. We use a winemaker’s approach to create our take on the Modern cider style. ||Modern Sparkling- A smooth carbonation and dryness develops from the final stages of fermentation in bottle. Strikes a subtle balance between acidity and effervescence, accenting fresh fruit notes. Living yeast, which changes with time, creates its own characteristics in each bottle.||King in Arms- First of a series that will explore the subtleties of barrel aged cider. Fermented and aged in a Manatawny Still Works barrel that housed whiskey then rum. Soft oaky notes give this cider warm and spicy aromas. Celebrating the rich history of Downingtown and Pennsylvania, we named this cider after one of three Downingtown taverns in the 1800s. Complementing our state’s history, the use of a Manatawny Still Works barrel is a nod to the vibrant community of makers.|
THE CIDERS- 8 cider styles, to include:
|Stark Cider- Our debut release, Stark is made from Stayman and Spitzenberg apples, both heirloom American varietals. Its citrusy, fruit-forward notes remind us of a German radler—a shandy of juice and beer—so we named this high-octane cider Stark, German for strong. Off-dry and crisp, enjoy this one as you would a glass of wine. ||Lupulin Lummox- Humulus lupulus is the Latin name for hops, the flowers that give an IPA its grassy flavor. Citra hops, matched with the sweetness of Jonagold and the tartness of Gold Rush apples, yield a mouth-watering cider with subtle sweetness. Big and brassy, yet balanced.||Pinot N'Arlet- Apples were our first love, but when a neighbor offered us batch of Pennsylvania-grown Pinot Noir grapes, we couldn’t say no. This wild yeast fermented cider combines the elegance of these grapes with the ruddy, rustic sweetness of Macoun and Arlet (hence the name) apples. Dry and blush-colored, it’s extremely food-friendly.|
|Muhibbah- Dry Cider with Malaysian spices. A Malay word meaning cross-cultural harmony, Muhibbah was inspired by a series of Cheese, Sambal, & Cider collaboration dinners with Malaysian chef Ange Branca and cheesemaker Jamie Png. Incorporating makrut lime leaves, star anise, cumin and coriander into a dry cider, we’ve created a drink that we hope embodies the Muhibbah values of tolerance, understanding, and friendship across diversity.||Dornick- American dry cider. We're proud of Adams County, PA, where we live and make our ciders. In each bottle we share some of its terroir with you. The term Dornick evokes a stony, pebbly quality – like the limestone and fractured white quartz under the apple trees of our home orchards. The stones emerge under the trees each spring when the snow melts. This cider, born of bold, robust apples, offers aromas of strawberry, butterscotch, and autumn leaves. We let the cider emerge in its own time from the land when it is ready. Full and satisfying, and unique every year.||Kenspeckle- American cider with chokeberries. Scottish for conspicuous, there’s no missing the bright color of this cider. It comes from chokeberries, also called aronia berries. The small, deep purple fruit is bitter and astringent on its own, but fermented with sweet juice from Stayman, Rome, and Jonagold apples it yields a complex cider, dry and slightly tannic, with strawberry and cherry aromas. |

Jack’s Hard Cider awaits maturity in state of the art stainless steel tanks, is bottled on-site and rests for a short period to allow for “bottle shock” to wear away.

THE CIDERS: 19 cider styles, to include:
|Stoke Red- An excellent, balanced, medium bittersharp juice in the same class as the famed Kingston Black, with a perfect tannin/acid balance. It was commonly planted in orchards across cider-making regions from the 1920s, having come into prominence at Rodney Stoke in Somerset at the turn of the century… “crops are large and the quality of the juice is first rate.” The juice ferments to a sharp, often scented, vintage quality cider. ||Roxbury Russet- The oldest American bred cider apple, having first been discovered and named in the mid-17th century in Roxbury Town, part of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. This was among the most popular varieties in America in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Thomas Jefferson planted a number of 'Roxbury Russet' trees in Monticello's South Orchard in 1778. He referred to them as "russetings". The sugar content is very high and the sugar/acid balance contributes to its fine flavor. ||Virginia Crab- Amber in color, sharp tartness, grapefruit overtones, with a dry finish. American varietal.|

This summer seasonal is an off-dry cider that is perfect if you’re looking for something “not too sweet” and also allows you to come back for another. ||Barrel Aged Reserve Cider- is a unique blend of traditional cider apples fermented and aged in whiskey and brandy barrels.

Fresh lime zest also lends a refreshing citrus that makes it perfect for any weather. We’ve back-sweetened with just a touch of fresh apple cider for a smooth apple character.|

|Kingston Black- The Kingston Black apple is perhaps the most esteemed of all English cider varietals. This single varietal dry cider has earthy notes, soft tannins and a rustic complexity that’s reminiscent of old world ciders. Limited availability each year.|

Threadbare Cider- It started with Whiskey. Five years ago, at our family-owned Distillery in Pittsburgh we started making seasonal whiskeys that celebrated the regions’ apple bounty. Whiskey finished with apple wood staves; Walkabout, whiskey proofed down with local apple cider. Before we knew it we were deep into apples and regional apple history, including falling in love with our quirky Pittsburgher, Johnny Appleseed Chapman. And that was before we started getting deep into the goodie box of apple yeasts and ferments, diving into Pommeau and apple brandies. At the same time we found a second barrelhouse for our burgeoning whiskey inventory and tucked behind it was a 10,000 square foot historic tannery, oozing with charm (ie construction complexities and budget overruns) that was just begging to be a ciderhouse. So here we are pumping out farmhouse, bottle conditioned, hopped, wild fermented, and barrel aged ciders. And we’re so glad you’ve joined us to explore a new American cider frontier.
Arrowhead Wine Cellars- In 1980, Nick and Kathy Mobilia – third generation owners of Mobilia Fruit Farms, began pressing grapes into juice for wineries in North East, Pennsylvania. It wasn’t until 1998 that Arrowhead Wine Cellars was established, after Nick saw the need to offer a product to consumers that he had full control over. With the knowledge and experience of processing grapes it was decided that Mobilia Fruit Farms would go the extra step and begin producing the wine on their own. After all, they were already growing the different varieties of wine grapes and fruits that are now used in their fruit wines. At Arrowhead Wine Cellars they have full control of the process from growing and pressing to the fermenting and bottling. Arrowhead Wine Cellars has been producing internationally recognized award-winning wines, with 32 varieties to choose from. Arrowhead uses the highest quality European, Native and hybrid grapes, most of which are grown on their 250 acre farm.

Franklin Hill Vineyards- Following the success of the vineyard, we built our winery in 1981. We decided to build underground, using the comfort of the earth to provide the natural temperature the wines enjoy. Starting at a mere few hundred gallons, we were on our way. Our customers navigated a mile long dirt path that lead to the winery to taste and buy. In the parking area a sign read: We are in the vineyard. “Honk your horn for service.” Offering tastings in our work cloths, customers enjoyed the working winery environment and intimate look into winery life. That same dirt path leads you to our tasting room today. Old world charm meets modern excellence to provide our customers with an amazing experience each time they visit. Nestled in the rolling hills of Eastern Pennsylvania, our winery offers picturesque views and a shopping experience like no other.

Some wines are labeled using proprietary names to promote the local area. Conneaut Cellars Winery was founded by Dr. Alan Wolf in 1982. During the 1960's Dr. Wolf experimented with more than 130 grape varieties for Cornell University and The Pennsylvania State University, as well as teaching basic winemaking courses at several colleges.

After retiring from education in 1981, Dr. Wolf and his wife, Phyllis, established Conneaut Cellars Winery with the mission to make a memorable and distinctive wine that reflects the northeastern climate of Lake Erie - the Lake Erie Wine Appellation.

|Straws & Stripes- A tart apple cider base using apples from Adams Co., PA. We added several hundred pounds of strawberries we picked from Strites Orchard. We consciously opted to leave the stems on the strawberries to carry through a little grassiness/green flavor. ||Huzzah Honeycrisp- Back in Colonial times, when something was worthy of shouting for joy, loud exclamations of “Huzzah!” could be heard all throughout the taverns. That’s exactly how we feel about this hard cider. Relish in the natural sweetness of 100% Pennsylvania Honeycrisp apples, raise your glass and toast accordingly. Huzzah, friends.||Articles of ImPearment- These articles of vanilla and bourbon have been carefully drafted into a pear cider to initiate the ImPearment process, which requires a full vote before your governing body. |

Killarney Cidery- Harvest Driven: Only the finest regional apples are selected at the peak of flavor. Killarney Cidery determines the combination of select apples as mother nature ripens them through the Fall season. Our experience brings the combination together to produce a fine finish with exceptional character. Limited run: Seasonal variation in the apples and even the orchards is natural. Killarney Cidery crafts and focuses on small batches to harness the best from the peak of what nature offers. Clarity: Time and effort deliver our clarity and complexity. Our attention to detail and old-style process begins with pressing the fresh apples and continues through fermentation, thus prevailing over the harsh industrial practices used as shortcuts.

Benton Ciderworks & Hard Cider Winery- In 2006 we bought a press and began making our own sweet cider. Now we direct every step of the cider making process, from selecting the apples through bottling. The only thing we don't do is grow the apples. We buy our apples from orchards here in Columbia and neighboring counties. We add only sugar, yeast and salicylic acid, and occasionally fresh fruits, such as strawberries. We add no raisins, fruit concentrates, sulfur compounds or other preservatives. These ingredients allow us to produce pure, very smooth hard ciders. Our ciderworks and hard cider winery were the former drying kiln for the Little Lumber Company, which operated in Benton from 1941–2001. Its well insulated walls allow us to control the temperature and humidity for aging cider. The building houses our entire operation, including the pressing and aging rooms and retail store. Colonel Ricketts- Robert B. Ricketts (1839 – 1918), a local historical figure, is the namesake of our hard cider. Born and raised in nearby Orangeville, PA, Ricketts was an officer in the Union Army, leading an artillery battery during the Battle of Gettysburg.
Ploughman Farm Cider- is the proud maker of ciders made from apples grown in Adams County, PA. We grow, harvest and produce our ciders from a single source: the orchards at Three Springs Fruit Farm.
Big Hill Ciderworks- is located in the heart of Apple Country along the South Mountain: a northern extension of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Our facilities are just north of historic Gettysburg and only a few miles away from the Appalachian Trail. The area is known for its unique microclimate and soil types that cater perfectly to apple production. We are home to some of the best apples in the country. Big Hill was founded by Troy and Ben, two independent farmers looking to make darn good ciders. Big Hill began in the Spring of 2013 when we poured concrete in what is now our Ciderworks building. At this time, we offer sales by appointment only, please contact us if you would like to come out and visit. We look forward to expanding our operation to an onsite tasting room so that you all can come by and visit us one day. Until then, we hope you enjoy our cider at your local pub.
THE CIDERS- 7 cider styles, to include:
|Wickson Cider- Made entirely from the juice of Wickson crab apples, this is our first single-varietal cider. We can thank the pomologist Albert Etters for breeding what is quite possibly the most-edible of crabs. The candy-like aromas abound in the finished cider and are balanced by sizable tartness with a hint of astrigency. We've been waiting for years to offer this cider and we believe our patience has finally paid off.||North Meets South- In remembrance of the Battlefield of Gettysburg, we have crafted our own version of "North Meets South," a bourbon barrel-aged cider. From where once was the clashing of cannons you will find the harmonious melding of Pennsylvania apples and Virginia bourbon. Made with freshly-pressed juice and no added water, we hope you enjoy this unique cider. Cheers!||Ginger Kid- Born of an experiment in the early days of Good Intent, Ginger Kid blends our cider with fresh ginger root and the goodness of Beiler Farm's Pennsylvania maple syrup. While many flavored ciders tend to overwhelm the palate, we balance the ingredients in such a way that the ginger and maple syrup have supporting roles but the deliciousness of fermented apples takes center stage. Enjoy! |
|Happy Valley Hodgepodge – 2017- Crafted with apples grown in Happy Valley, this cider blends more than 20 varieties, resulting in rich and complex flavors not found in most ciders. These apples include lesser-known cultivars such as Ashmead's Kernel, King David, Pitmaston Pineapple, Calville Blanc, Golden Pippin, Chisel Jersey, and Tremlett's Bitter. Though they may be a motley bunch, when fermented together they become just one more delicious example of all that Happy Valley has to offer! ||Rose Farm Orchard- Our Rose Farm Orchard cider is crafted with a blend of apples from the Gettysburg Battlefield and enhanced by oak aging to produce faint vanilla and woody flavors. A first of its kind, this cider is the product of an agreement between Good Intent Cider and the nonprofit Gettysburg Foundation. Proceeds from this cider benefit the Gettysburg National Military Park, creating a sustainable fund for the care and preservation of the historic orchards on the Gettysburg Battlefield. ||Eve's Revenge- While there are those who would leave Eve forever at fault, that ever-tempting apple was certainly to blame. Who could have resisted sweet bites of enlightenment? Though it was no clear Eve's name, we thought that Adam's Apple finally deserved a bit of heat. One Thai chili is just the right amount to match the acidity and astringency of this cider. Though revenge may be sweet, in our garden it's spicy! |

Good Intent Cider- It all started one November day in 2010 when Adam innocently asked Jenn what she thought about him attending a week long cider making class at the Cornell Ag Extension. “Sure,” said Jenn, as she thought to herself, “that would be a neat hobby.” Upon his return Adam spoke very excitedly about cider making, insisting that Jenn read up on the subject. Then the packages began to arrive. The first were innocent looking enough…a small tank here, a few hoses there. All of a sudden, a pallet of several hundred bottles arrives. There is talk of production space and LLC, and “hey, mom and dad, you have a spare office!” Jenn and Adam get married. Their reception features a cider made by Adam. Family and friends enjoy the fruits of his labor and Adam is hooked. We are seduced by his enthusiasm, and a family business is born.
|Traditional Dry Cider - is a very dry, crisp, easy drinking and delicately balanced cider. It is wonderfully tart and eﬀervescent with a light apple fragrance.||Razzberet Tart- (an homage to the Philly accent) is the smash hit, a vivid pink brew steeped with Lehigh Valley fruit that adds a lovely sour finish infused with the brightness of a berry patch.||Gregarious Ginger- dry sparkling apple cider flavored with fresh ginger and lemongrass.|

Knockin Noggin Cidery and Winery- After our first two winery endevors, (Nova Cellars Winery and Fractured Grape wine cellars) we decided we wanted to add a twist. Hard cider was just the twist we were looking for. When deciding on a theme for our new cidery we wanted something very different. Having the science background that I do I thought of Isaac Newton's story of how he discovered gravity. One day when Newton was sitting under an apple tree an apple fell on his head (Noggin!). He then came up with the law of gravitation. From that story we came up with the name Knockin Noggin! What a great way to tie in apples to a cidery! With our theme being tied with science and Sir Isaac Newton we decided to make our labels resemble the periodic table and the names of our ciders to be different laws of science such as gravity and motion. We tried to place the atmosphere of this cidery and winery in a rustic, old environment. The mill was the perfect location we were looking for! Come out to visit us and enjoy our hard ciders and wines and see what you can discover. Who knows what may hit you while you are there!

Whip Tavern- You'll treasure this traditional English pub nestled in the rolling hillsides of Southern Chester County. Enjoy a casual lunch or dinner made with ingredients produced on the farms that surround the tavern. The Whip proudly serves a selection of over 50 domestic and international beers and ciders from a list that adjusts seasonally. When you arrive, be sure to check out the day's featured brews or try a cask-conditioned specialty draught from the local taps, for something new. Our choice selections of imports and locals are accompanied by a limited supply of seasonals and short runs. The Whip Tavern is now serving its own private-label house cider, with some of the proceeds going to preserve open space in the Brandywine Valley.
|Farmhouse- A pleasantly sweet and tart cider with a bright finish. Carbonated to have delicate tiny bubbles with just enough effervescence, you’ll taste ripe apple, fresh fruit, vanilla, baking spice, nuttiness, and a definite minerality finish.||Dry-hopped- A traditional tart off-dry cider with a citrus-y fragrance and wave of tart apple flavor without the bitterness of an IPA. We use a Mosaic, Amarillo, and Centennial hop blend reulting in tangerine, peach, papaya, rose, melon, lemon notes, and a sharp apple finish.||Dry Cider- A crisp and tart traditional dry apple cider inspired by our own region’s cider-making heritage. Made wild-type yeast varieties to enhance the mouthfeel and contribute unique white wine characteristics, this is the cider that is closest to what Johnny would have enjoyed!|
