Texas Keeper Cider- is a cidery located in South Austin. Our focus is producing traditional, creative craft cider. Texas Keeper draws its name from an extinct Texas apple cultivar called Hicks Texas Keeper first cultivated up in Lamar County around the turn of the 20th century. Most people don’t think of Texas when they think of apples, but there are actually a number of apple cultivars that got their start in the State. Many of the varietals are considered extinct today, the Hicks Texas Keeper among them. The name is a tribute to the knowledge of our predecessors - much of which has been lost - and our attempt to get a bit of it back.
Texas has the most farms and the highest acreage in the United States. Texas leads the nation in livestock production. Cattle is the state's most valuable agricultural product, and the state leads nationally in production of sheep and goat products. Texas leads the nation in production of cotton. The state grows significant amounts of cereal crops and produce. Texas has a large commercial fishing industry. And, while the Lonestar State that may be better known for its cowboys and longneck beer it now has 7 new cideries that will challenge and expand that tradition.

|Texas Keeper Ciderweizen- We build Ciderweizen with witbiers and hefeweizens in mind. our goal was to marry the underlying citrus and green apple notes of the Goldrush and Crispin apples with the lightly hopped and spiced character of old world wheat beers. We used select yeast strains to accentuate the right fruit characters and dry hopped and dry spiced the cider to finish. ||Texas Keeper Gold Rush- This 2013 crop of Gold Rush tasted like lemons and limes coming through the press. Usually you lose those early characteristics in fermentation, but this batch mellowed into grapefruit and Meyer lemon with a hint of watermelon on the finish. We’ve kept the residual sugar slightly higher to balance the fruit’s natural acidity. It’s our citrus sketch, perfect for pairing with a variety of cheeses and desserts. |

|Lady Goldsmith- Aged on lees and a thorough MLF secondary. Our richest cider yet with full body and a deep golden hue. Bouquet of stone fruit and spice with a bready finish. More of a Crémant style for aromatic retention and mouthfeel.||Malus Opus- Used a yeast isolated form the Languedoc known for its Syrah and Zinfandel capabilities to create a more fruit forward nose. ||Idalou Brut- Like our other Brut varietals, this wine is co-fermented with both wild and cultured yeast and aged dry for a clean, summer sparkling great for any hot day. A bit of Brett is added for a nice citric punch, yet still light straw colored and fruit forward.|
|Bandera Brut- A combination of wild Bandera yeast fermented to a specific Brix for the characteristic "funk", followed with an inoculation of Prise de Mousse for a clean, healthy fermentation.||Cameo- This vintage is comprised of 100% Cameo apples hailing from North Texas. Aged on new American Oak, this sparkling bubbly finishes with notes of toast, butter and a lovely, crisp apple bouquet. ||The Perennial- release is a collection of fruit harvested from both the Medina and Lubbock orchards from the 2013 harvest. This blend maximizes the fruit characters delivering a straightforward apple palate, with a finish of our natural ambient yeast characters and the residual flavors from aging in French and American Oak. |
Austin Eastciders- Old style cider made from bittersweet & bittersharp cider apples was the most popular drink in America until Prohibition. Dry, complex and highly refreshing, this delicious drink has been lost for generations. Austin Eastciders begin production of natural cider in East Austin from 2012 using ancient bittersweet and bittersharp cider apple varieties. For us, making cider is about following the traditions that made cider the Original Drink of America, the most popular drink in the land until Temperance broke up the party. We use antique cider apple varieties, high in tannins and acids, to produce flavors that have not been widely experienced in America since Prohibition. So, how do you like THEM apples?

Argus Cidery- We are Texas' first hard cider. We are Texas Bubbly. Sparkling hard ciders made from Texas apples.The biggest challenge of producing cider in Texas is not the quality of the apples, but rather the lack of apple producers in the state. Thankfully, the apples grown here are not any less flavorful than ones grown in other parts of the country. In fact, as with many products grown in Texas, the flavors of homegrown apples are unique to the Lone Star State. On Saturdays we are open to the public for tastings by reservation only. Other offerings include our still ciders by the glass or carafe, and bottles to go. Don't forget to bring your growlers!
