Downeast Cider House, Boston

4.7
#4 of 8 in Breweries & Distilleries in Boston
Downeast Cider House was founded by Ross Brockman and Tyler Mosher during their senior year of college. Through their travels abroad, they took notice of the large presence of hard cider in bars, restaurants, and liquor stores. Upon evaluating the disappointing landscape of hard cider in the United States, Ross and Tyler have made it their goal to build New England's first and largest craft hard cider company, and restore hard cider to its rightful place in American culture.

Our cider is made from freshly pressed New England apples because we believe in making the best product we possibly can, while also supporting local agriculture. We use Red Delicious, McIntosh, Cortland, and Gala apples in our cider. The Original Blend, currently packaged in kegs and cans, is distributed through Pine State Trading Company (Northern Maine), Nappi Distributors.(Portland and Southern Maine), L. Knife & Sons (South Shore Mass), Seaboard Products (North Shore Mass), Union (New York City), and Craft Brewers Guild (Mass minus north and south shores, RI, NH, and CT).

  • Truly an amazing cider and an amazing experience. We took a tour with Luke and he was hilarious and very informative. The tour is definitely the way to go if you have any interest in the process and what makes Downeast unique. The place as a whole has a great vibe and their ciders are always changing.
  • Stopped in for the first time we were ever in Boston because we've had the cider before and enjoyed it. We got on the first tour of the day and really enjoyed it! Our tour guide was super nice and funny, several samples were included and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for something to do in the area. I learned a lot about the cider process and how Downeast came to be. I'd only hope that one day they'll expand and open a true bar/tasting room so you can hang out and enjoy more than samples! Keep it up Downeast!
