Our Urban Cidery
Made by hand in the heart of Chicago
Despite how obsessive we are about perfecting it, our cider is actually very simple. It starts with a blend of fresh-pressed American-grown apples, which are fermented dry with champagne-style yeast. Sometimes we add honey. Sometimes we add fresh fruit.
We do this all in our urban cidery, an old brick building that feels about as "Chicago" as you can get. We make the cider here, then we bottle it and label it here, pack it into boxes, and load trucks here. We're local and handmade in the truest sense of the word.
There’s a bee hive on our roof that supplies all of our honey. It’s not easy to get to — you have to climb some old stairs and pull yourself out a window but it’s worth it: it’s as local as it gets. The bees pollinate the wildflowers that grow on the train tracks outside our doors.
