Want to take home some delicious hard cider?

You can purchase growlers and bottles of our specialty ciders, including ciders from the Angry Orchard Cider House Collection and other styles available exclusively at the Innovation Cider House. Available cider styles will vary depending on what our cider makers are currently working on. 


Growler Fills: Now Pouring

CRISP APPLE  ($18.00)

Our flagship style, Crisp Apple is made from traditional cider apples for a blend of sweetness and bright acidity, just like biting into a fresh apple. ABV: 5%


KNOTTY PEAR  ($19.00)

Knotty Pear's main ingredient is juice from American apples, and also features pear juice and cardamom. White oak aging gives it a pleasantly dry finish. ABV: 6.5%


THE OLD FASHIONED  ($19.00)

The Old Fashioned is made with a blend of American apples and is aged on oak with dried tart cherries. ABV: 6.5%


ELDERFLOWER  ($19.00)

Inspired by the European tradition of elderflower cordials which dates back to ancient Roman times, Elderflower has a bright, fruity flavor that balances the flower's subtle floral notes and tropical fruitiness. ABV: 5%


SPRING FARM ($18.00)

Our Spring Farm cider is made exclusively with culinary apples from our orchard here in New York. Natural fruit sugars balance the earthiness of this farm style cider. ABV: 7.7%


Specialty Bottles

THE VALLEY FLOR - OVAL NOUVEAU  ($18.00)

Natively fermented in oak and matured in the same manner as some fine champagnes and wines, Oval Nouveau is a dry and unfiltered cider made from bittersweet and sharp apples that showcase the terroir of our Walden Orchard.ABV: 6.2%


EDU  ($18.00)

A tart, funky, and complex cider made from bittersweet and sharp apples, taking its cues from traditional Spanish cider makers. Edu pays homage to a friend from Asturias who has helped shape our path. ABV: 6.6%


THE VALLEY FLOOR - FIRST FLORA  ($20.00)

First Flora marks the beginning of our story in Walden. The first fermentation of 2015 harvest, this is an off dry cider made with bittersweet and sharp apples and fermented using only the natural micro flora of our orchard, then aged for several months in calvados barrels.ABV: 6.7%


UNDERSTOOD IN MOTION: 01  ($25.00)

Made from a carefully selected blend of heirloom apples grown in Vermont, including Ananas Reinette & D’Arcy, this cider was fermented slowly to dryness and then spent several months in used calvados barrels. Three year old ice cider, made by our friends at Eden, was blended in just before bottling. ABV: 8%


WOODEN SLEEPER  ($22.00)

When apples start to come off the trees, and summer turns to fall, we take this as our cue to lay down a special fermentation made of bittersweet and sharp apples for a long rest in Bourbon barrels. A year later, we wake this warming cider up and blend it to help you through the long winter ahead! ABV: 9.5%


PLEASE NOTE: Cider purchased at the Innovation Cider House is intended to be enjoyed at home and cannot be consumed on-site. Growlers are available on a first come, first serve basis and we may run out of popular styles.
