Ciders On TAP

POOR FARMER CLASSIC - 6.5% ABV

Our flagship, easy going hard cider crafted from fresh-pressed Northwest apples. Not too dry, not too sweet.

 

POOR FARMER HOPPED - 6.5% ABV

Bright and citrusy using fresh-pressed Northwest apples and El Dorado hops from Whitefish, MT.

 

SOUR CHERRY - 7% ABV

Tart cherries and Washington apples co-ferment to create this copper colored cider with notes of cinnamon, clove, jammy red fruits and a mouthwatering finish. Pairs well with wild game or radicchio salad.

 

WHISKEY PEACH - 11% ABV

Washington apples and peaches age in white oak whiskey barrels to create bright notes of vanilla, dried apricots and caramel flan. With a rich palate of fruit and spirituous heat of whiskey, Western Medicine is best drank with friends around the fire.

 

McINTOSH - 7.3% ABV

This single varietal cider uses Heirloom McIntosh apples grown on gnarled eighty-year-old trees from one of the last plantings of Montana’s historic Bitterroot Valley apple era. A Gold Medal winner, McIntosh is renown for its vivid apple aromatics and flavor. Golden in color, it is rich with tannins - adding to its complexity. Pairs well with braised pork shoulder and pickled vegetables.

 

RANCH HAND - 6.5% ABV

Bold and refreshing. Made with fresh-pressed Northewst apples. A reliable and sturdy cider that works anywhere.

GREAT BEAR - 6.5% ABV

Part of our Community Cider Collaboration - the cider made from apples gleaned around the Missoula region. The Great Bear varies wildly between batches and harvest year. 10% of proceeds from the sale of The Great Bear are donated back to the Great Bear Foundation.

 

WICKSON - 8.5% ABV

Made entirely from the Wickson crab apple harvest from our Bitterroot Valley cider orchard. This ferment was slow and steady with amazing stone-fruit aromas and a bright tartness.

 

NEWTOWN PIPPIN - 6.3% ABV

Our semi-dry Newtown Pippin is a sessionable, single variety cider barrel-aged in white oak barrels for 10 months. It is 100% Newtown Pippin, one of the oldest known apple varieties that originated as a chance seedling on a property that stood in the vicinity of what is now Broadway and 45th Avenue in Queens, New York in the late 17th or early 18th century. Our Newtown Pippins were sourced from A&J Orchards in Hood River, Oregon. The Newtown Pippin has aromas of candied pineapple and lemon custard followed by pear flavors with light honey and oak notes.  An enjoyable, easy drinking cider.

 

IDYLL McINTOSH - 7% ABV

The Idyll McIntosh blends the beloved Montana McIntosh with a mix of cider apples from Oregon’s Idyll Acres Orchard. The Macs are aged for 6 ½ months in neutral oak barrels, blended with Wickson, Vilberie, Sweet Coppin, and Dabinett - then topped off with fresh Montana McIntosh juice from the 2018 harvest. The result is rich and full of fruit with a lasting tannic finish. Pairs great with hard Manchego sheep cheese, watermelon and arugula, spicy dishes, grilled shishito peppers, and fruit salad.
