There’s a new hard cider in town, aimed at the palate of beer lovers
You've tried hard cider, and said "no thanks" to more. Too much sugar, too much apple. You'll change your mind after a visit to Bantam Cider's production facility and tasting room in Somerville's Union Square. This young cidery aims for a new slant on hard cider – tart and full-bodied, just right for beer drinkers looking for a fresh experience. Visit and sip a true craft brew that calls to mind the cider houses in Spain's Basque region. Take a walk through the cidery, and see how it's made. The apples for the brew have traveled only from nearby western Massachusetts. After your tour take a seat in our tasting room and sample up to eight or our ciders on draft, including limited edition batches such as our Dry Hopped, Hibiscus Mint, or Wild One. Re-open your mind and palate to hard cider – this is refreshment for adults, as our New England ancestors meant it to be.
