Can I buy cider online or directly from the cidery?
Because of the three tiered system in the US, alcoholic beverages are unable to be sold directly to consumers from the cider makers or online. However, if you get the opportunity to visit our Innovation Cider House in Walden NY, there are some specialty ciders available for purchase on-site. See you there!
Why the Angry Orchard Name?
As our cider makers traveled the world looking for the best ingredients, they found that the trees that produce the best apples for cider making also look the angriest! You’ll know this is true if you’ve ever seen an apple orchard in the winter, when all the fruit-bearing trees have been picked clean and all that’s left is gnarled, angry branches. Our cider makers took the best apples from those angry trees in France, Italy, and parts of the United States, and found that the apples best for cider are more tart and tannic than the apples at the grocery store. In fact, Many European cider makers have been calling cider making apples “angry” for years! We chose the name Angry Orchard because it fit our trees, our apples, and, of course, our cider!
Where is Angry Orchard made?
Angry Orchard is a subsidiary of The Boston Beer Company. Few people know that we’ve actually been tinkering with cider recipes since the mid-1990s under The Boston Beer Company. We launched the Angry Orchard Cider Company with the mission of making ciders with the best ingredients, and introducing well-crafted and innovative cider styles. We make and bottle Angry Orchard at our facilities in Ohio and Pennsylvania. We also have an Innovation Cider House located on our orchard in Walden, New York where our on-site cider maker Ryan Burk experiments with ingredients and cider making techniques on specialty ciders available to sample and purchase only at the Orchard.

How can I tell the shelf-life of my cider?
Generally, our ciders will stay fresh for about twelve months after it was packaged. And, because so many drinkers enjoy Angry Orchard, it’s rare to find an old Angry Orchard on the shelves. Much like other alcoholic beverages, hard cider does not go bad, but its flavor profile will change over time.
Is Angry Orchard gluten free and made with gluten free equipment?
Our ciders are made with all naturally gluten-free ingredients. We make every effort to avoid cross-contamination of ingredients, and periodically test our cider and cider making equipment.
Why doesn’t Angry Orchard use twist off caps?
We’ve found that pry-off caps provide the most secure seal for hard cider – protecting the liquid from coming into contact with oxygen, which over time can be detrimental to the flavor of hard cider. We make our hard ciders with the best apples and ingredients we can find, and we want to make sure you taste the hard work and passion we have for cider making every time you open a bottle.
