Kevin Collins has a passion for crafting exceptional cider, but he sees the Cider Creek Hard Cider tasting room in Canisteo as more than a place to taste. He and his wife, Melanie, have plans to make Cider Creek a national brand and to make the tasting room a destination where people can come, kick back, and spend a few hours enjoying time in the country.
They are also interested in collaborating with other craft beverage makers and in promoting the delicious brews and wines of other New York tastemakers.
With their Saison Reserve named one of 10 ciders that craft beer drinkers will love by Paste Magazine, Cider Creek Hard Cider is already setting itself apart. Travel blogger Jeremy Jones of Living the Dream writes: "As cider is becoming one of the newest trends in the alcohol community, many of the vineyards are also picking up new cider lines as well. We sampled several during our travels around the Finger Lakes, and although delicious and easy to sample, none of them came close to the complexity and balance of the ciders from Cider Creek Hard Cider!"
Stop by Cider Creek Hard Cider, enjoy some ciders, NYS craft beers and wines, live music, and other entertainment. You can also find their cider in Wegmans.
