We believe that producing a quality hard cider of any variety is 90% art and 10% science. Toss in a bit of sweat and heartburn for good measure and you’ll have a typical small cidery. Crafting cider is a lot like crafting many other beverages, and our love of quality ingredients drives us to produce more than just an average cider, but what we believe, is the finest cider possible. Our passion is to create something special from one of the most natural substances on earth, and share it with everyone.
Quality and consistency are the most important aspects of our products, if they aren’t good enough for us to drink or offer to our own friends and family, then we won’t sell it to you!
Red Branch Cider Company offers both traditional and seasonal ciders with an innovative honey twist.
If you can’t find our products on tap at your favorite bar or in bottles at your favorite local wine or beer shop, please ask them to carry us!
Traditionally called a ‘cyser,’ all of our products begin with apple juice and honey sourced from the Pacific Northwest. Fermented together and after fermentation is complete, it is filtered, and a variety of fruit juices are added to make the individual flavors. Our ciders are made from 100% real ingredients. We source only the highest quality products in order to produce the finest hard cider available.
You can come to expect quality and consistency from each and every one of our products and we back that up with our 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you don’t like it, tell us and we will make it right.

Causes We Love
Red Branch Cider & Brewing Company and our parent company, Rabbit’s Foot Meadery, believe that giving back is part of what it means to do business in the world today. To that end, we donate to several charitable organizations annually. These organizations are ones that mean something special to us. Unfortunately, we are unable to give to every charitable cause, and so we review each on a case by case basis. We are proud to support organizations such as the following:
