Blue Toad Hard Cider

The cidery features a cozy tasting room and welcoming outdoor areas, making it an ideal spot to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

In the heart of America's cider tradition, Blue Toad Cider stands as a testament to the artistry of crafting a refreshing beverage that honors its roots. Born in a barn, this hard cider pays homage to the legacy of America's first preferred drink, using a blend of locally grown apples from Western New York and the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.

What sets Blue Toad Hard Cider apart is its commitment to authenticity. Rather than relying solely on European-style tart and bitter apples, Blue Toad opts for a cider blend that includes three to four different apple varieties. This diverse blend, rich with natural seasonal variation, is cultivated in the fertile orchards near Rochester, New York, and Tyro, Virginia. The result is a cider that captures the essence of the regions it originates from, offering a unique and nuanced flavor profile.

What truly sets Blue Toad Hard Cider apart is its commitment to responsible production. In an industry where mass-produced ciders often resort to imported concentrates, Blue Toad takes a different approach. Their focus on using locally sourced apples not only supports local farmers but also ensures a more sustainable and environmentally friendly product.

Blue Toad invites cider enthusiasts and newcomers alike to experience the difference in their brew – a difference that goes beyond the taste. Their hard cider is more than just a beverage; it's an authentic and enjoyable experience that speaks to the craft, tradition, and care put into every bottle, can, or glass.
