FAIRFIELD, IA (JUNE 26, 2017) – The award-winning Cider House is proud to announce that its showcase hand crafted cider, FISHBACK & STEPHENSON - THE IOWA STRANGLER, has been so well received by customers it is now being distributed outside the doors of the restaurant and across Iowa by Doll Distributing. The four friends and owners are thrilled that customers have welcomed their hand made cider as much as their award-winning burgers.

“I drink a lot of cider and I love THE IOWA STRANGLER. I love that it’s not too sweet and goes down easy with a beautiful and unique blend of flavors,” shares local business owner Michaela McLain.

“The IOWA STRANGLER is an absolute game changer for anyone looking for something other than wine, beer, or liquor.  Crisp, healthy, and delicious... I’ve never had cider like this before!” says customer and entrepreneur Jeffery Smith.

Iowa City area bartender Lucas James says, “THE IOWA STRANGLER is an absolute must! As a bartender I will tell you that this is my favorite Hard Cider. It is unique and refreshing. A+.”

Owner Hopi James shares, “We are thrilled that there is a growing demand for THE IOWA STRANGLER and that people are receiving it so well. We can’t wait to have our product in restaurants and bars nationwide!”


FISHBACK & STEPHENSON - THE IOWA STRANGLER is the first flavor to be released by FISHBACK & STEPHENSON.  The tart, semi-sweet cider with aronia berries hits the mark – not too sweet, not too dry, totally refreshing.  More flavors to follow.
