boutique midwestern ciders


like most 80's movies, four friends spent their summer and fall nights walking through the streets and sneaking into backyards and driving down dirt roads searching out 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 and washing machines and shop presses. we got 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.

current offerings:

the iowa strangler

the iowa strangler is a tart semi-sweet cider with aronia berries.  

so popular at our restaurant that it is now being distributed across southeast iowa by Doll Distributing.
