We like good cider.THE BEST CIDERS EMERGE FROM THE SIMPLEST INGREDIENTS

STOIC: /’stōik/ Bold • Resilient • Determined

Our name Stoic Cider stems from the resilience of abandoned orchards, which reflect the grit, persistence, and work ethic of our ancestors.

Good Ingredients, Good Cider

Fresh apples, fresh flavor. We search near and far for southwestern heritage apple orchards. The apples from these old trees are small in size, but large in flavor.
Juice is key to cider. Freshness and quality breath life into a sparkling aromatic cider.
We combine practices in wine and beer fermentation to yield the best cider. Long, slow, cold fermentations enhance the fruity apple flavor.
A passion for apples and a passion for cider. We research apples, farm apples, and ferment apples. We are excited to share that passion in our cider.

We work hard. We deliver hard cider.THERE IS A STORY
BEHIND EVERY
CIDER

Apples

Bitter with a terrible texture? Yes, please. We use the strangest apples possible. Inedible heirloom English, French, and American cider apples blend together to create aromatic, flavorful ciders.

Pears

A tart pear that dries your mouth with every bite? Ideal. Cider’s cousin “perry” is fermented pear juice. A finely made perry gives the experience of a fresh juicy pear, even on the darkest of winter days.

Yeast

Who knew yeast mattered? Yeast eats sugar to produce alcohol and divine flavor. Inspired by wine and craft beer, we select yeast strains to blend layers of taste and aroma.

WE MAKE
WHAT WE LOVE

Apples are my life

Too many college degrees–never too many apples. We have hundreds of historic apple varieties: French, English, American. Grafting rare and unique apples? Since we were kids. Tree-rings to date historic orchards? Done. Genetics to identify rare apples? Across America. Now we present: Stoic Cider, our new project to bring apples and ideas to the world.
