TESTIMONIALS


This place is amazing! Good food, amazing service (Ben made it such a special visit) and most important, great cider. Tons of different flavors from sweet to sour and even spicy. They offer flights and mulled cider. We will be back!!!

Stowe Perry


Love urban orchard. Friendly staff, great selection of cider. Hot cider is my personal favorite this time of year. The food is also really good with fresh and healthy choices that compliment the ciders well.

Jill Parker


It's a good bar for people into hard cider. They have a variety of options and an 8 oz. size makes it possible to try multiple. I went on a Saturday night and it was absolutely empty.

Charles Morgan


Had no idea you could do so much with cider. Every flavour had something to offer. The flavour varieties are innumerable. We even had one that was coffee flavors. We went on a Wednesday night and had a very personal experience win individualized attention.

Analee Tapia


Cool cider place among the many breweries, so a great place for people who aren’t big beer lovers or just want to have something a bit different. We really loved the ginger and the strawberry ciders. We got the cheese and charcuterie board too which was delicious. Just a cool place to hang out too

Carlye Beyer


My wife is gluten free so this was a must for us. We really loved it. Every cider was solid and the food was really good too! Def stop by and grab beers at the brewery up the street while you are there.

About Urban Orchard Cider Co.

Urban Orchard Cider Co. provides two warm and inviting spaces allowing visitors to experience our one-of-a-kind hard ciders that are made on site. We proudly offer a welcoming atmosphere that fosters creativity, invigorating discussion with friends, or a warm chair to enjoy your cider in one hand and your new favorite book in the other.

 

In a time where product labels can be difficult to navigate and interrupt, you can be sure that Urban Orchard Ciders are of the purest form. We are dedicated to producing the highest quality craft ciders that we would feel good about drinking ourselves, and often do. Forget the days of overly sweet ciders, full of artificial sweeteners. We let fresh-pressed apple juice do the subtle sweetening for us. Aging/maturation and a variety of yeast strains are competitive advantages for us and we have found that the extra work delivers us with a superior product in the end.  Stop by for a visit.
