ABOUT US

like in an 80's movie, four friends spent their summer and fall nights walking through backstreets and backyards and dirt roads looking for wild apple trees to make hard cider. 

we started with a juicer in the kitchen and then saved enough money to buy an antique apple press off craigslist for 40 bucks. we experimented with woodchippers, washing machines, shop presses, and a custom fabricated screw press through alibaba that we ran until the hammers broke off.

these days our cidery sits on a hill overlooking our home town. the four of us press, ferment, age, and bottle all onsite. straight from us to you.
