Big Hill Ciderworks also presses, ferments, packages, and distributes their ciders. Utilizing traditional, time-honored cider making methods of slow fermentation, barrel aging and wild yeast fermentation, their ciders showcase a distinct flavor profile, unique to the orchards and the region. 

No added sugars, sweeteners, colors or flavorings are added to any of the ciders. Instead, different apple varieties are blended to get the desired final product. With 15 modern, traditional, and wild fermented offerings, there is something to appeal to every taste palate. All offering are gluten free. In addition to their ciders, there are several options for local beers on tap and in bottles.
