From dry to sweet, these Traverse City area cider destinations can’t be beat.
Acoustic Tap Room (Traverse City)
Unplug from life and enjoy locally crafted mead and cider at Acoustic Tap Room. While their cider hits the spot, the Strawberi Rose Bzzz Mead will have you coming back for an encore.
Tandem Ciders (Suttons Bay)
Off the beaten path, Tandem Ciders is worth the drive up Leelanau Peninsula. Enjoy their odes to the apple in a serene orchard setting.
Townline Ciderworks (Williamsburg)
Townline Ciderworks is a gem we can’t stop telling people about. With its spacious tap room and expansive views, there’s no wrong way to enjoy a flight or pint. Infused with cinnamon and brown sugar, their Cincinnati Kids cider is a standout.
Taproot Cider House (Traverse City)
A cornerstone of Traverse City’s cider scene, Taproot Cider House brings together the best of local, state, and house ciders. We recommend giving their semi-sweet Cherry Ginger cider a try.
Suttons Bay Ciders (Suttons Bay)
