Local Favorites that Serve Great-Tasting Hard Ciders

By: Scott Davis | September 2, 2020

The calendar has flipped over to September, and while the weather hasn’t changed yet, it will soon be time to get in the autumn mindset. One of the best ways to do that is to enjoy some crisp, refreshing hard cider. While there are plenty of great cider mills to grab a gallon of traditional cider, sometimes you might be in the mood for something a little stronger. If you’re looking for that sweet cider taste with a little bit of a kick, here are five places where you can find some great hard cider.

Blake’s Orchard

A staple in southeast Michigan, Blake’s Orchard is one of the must-visit fall spots in the area. There’s plenty of chances for you and your family to enjoy some u-pick apples and other fall activities, but their award winning craft beer and hard cider is a must try. You can visit Blake’s Hard Cider’s Tasting Room or even get their hard cider delivered directly to your doorstep.

Kuhnhenn Brewing Co.

With locations in Warren and Clinton Township, Kuhnhenn Brewing Company has become a favorite place to find unique craft beers and, of course, hard cider. Currently the brewery is featuring blueberry, ginger peach, sour green apple, pear and many more flavored ciders. Be sure to check their full drink menu to see what new ciders they’ll add throughout the fall.

B. Nektar

For the better part of the last decade, B. Nektar has been the go-to place to find some of the most diverse meads, beers and ciders. Their current cider offerings include the raspberry and cranberry-flavored Blood Amulet, honey and cherry juice Zombie Killer, lemon and raspberry-infused Punk Lemonade and the dry cider Core Crusher. You can always find the current lineup of ciders here, along with their latest beers and meads.

Wright & Co.

You can’t go wrong with a drink from Wright & Co. Their extensive drink menu includes a handful of ciders, ranging from the Maeloc Pear to the apple and blackberry Aspall Blush and strawberry rhubarb Put Kyoodle. Be sure to keep up to date with all of their drink offerings by viewing the menu online.
