Best Cideries in Atlanta

Mar 25th, 2024

You might not immediately think of apples when you think of Atlanta, but it’s time to reconsider. Atlanta has a vibrant scene of diverse cideries just waiting for you to stop by and find your favorite! Just like the old saying goes, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away,” and we think that should include ciders.

5 great cideries in ATL

Urban Tree Cidery

Drive time from downtown: 15 minutes

Location: 1465 Howell Mill Road NW, Atlanta

Specialties: Sweet Heat Haze, Lemon Lavender, Wild on Cherry

With apples sourced from the mountains of Northeast Georgia, Urban Tree Cidery makes a variety of refreshing ciders. The Sweet Heat Haze is a cider infused with ginger and hints of habanero zest. If spicy isn’t your thing, the Lemon Lavender is a seasonal favorite with delicate notes of lavender to offset the sourness of lemon. At Urban Tree, they believe in more than just cider; they work tirelessly to continue the work of sustainable agriculture by carefully creating their farm-to-table products. They believe in preserving historical legacies for future generations while fostering growth for new ones. Every sip of Urban Tree Cider showcases the hard work and love poured into each cider.

Having to relocate away from their tasting room, Treehouse Cider hasn’t given up on getting their delicious cider into your hands.

In the coming weeks, you will once again find your favorite Treehouse Ciders in stores, restaurants and local taphouses. Start counting down the days until you can get your hands on one of the best peach ciders around, the Peaches En Regalia cider. This pleasantly sweet and tart cider reminds us of summer days and uses locally sourced peaches to create this dreamy drink.
