The Awesome Hard Ciders Made in Eastern Iowa [PHOTOS]

If you’re a fan of “hard” apple cider, then you should know about the three great cideries right here in Eastern Iowa!

I have no problem admitting that I’m not a huge fan of beer. If I have to option to order an Angry Orchard or a Woodchuck instead, I’ll choose that 9 times out of 10. I absolutely LOVE hard ciders, and I was very pleased to find out that we have some local cideries that make some GREAT ones! There are actually three here in Eastern Iowa that you should know about:

  • Wilson’s Orchard Hard Cider
    • Made in Iowa City
    • Flavors include:
      • Peach Fizz
      • Goldfinch
      • Cherry Crush
      • Hoppleseed
      • Spiced Up
    • Available at Hy-Vee and John’s Grocery stores
    • Available on-tap at Black Sheep Social Club, Iowa Brewing Company, Irish Democrat, Pub 217, Parlor City, Big Grove Brewery, 30 Hop, and more

Slightly sweet, but never watered down.
