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.
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.
Who knew yeast mattered? Yeast eat sugar to produce alcohol and divine flavor. Inspired by wine and craft beer, we also select yeast strains to blend layers of taste and aroma.
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.
We do not yet offer tours of our facility. Please come find us at a local tasting event!
