Once again, Gnome Brew is getting a whole load of fresh pressed organic apple cider from a farm in Michigan. Join us for our favorite Fall tradition and brew some hard cider from the best source you'll find and get some extra to drink fresh!

This cider is:

  • Fresh pressed at the orchard
  • Organic
  • Unpasteurized with no preservatives
  • An award winning blend of cider apples
  • Perfect for making hard cider or drinking fresh

Brewing cider is easy, even for those with no experience.
