Our Story

Stowe Cider was founded in 2013 with a vision of bringing something different to the cider scene- a version that boasted less than half the sweetness of most commercial cider. Once this niche was created to “keep cider dry", demand was high and the location was quickly outgrown. Stowe Cider became a favorite stop among visitors and locals alike. With a move up Mountain Rd. Stowe Cider transitioned into the West Branch Building and combined tasting room with an updated production facility. Whether sipping a cider aprés ski, taking a break from a leaf peeping hike, or looking to enjoy some live music, guests are greeted with a consistently rotating tap selection, and more than 10 varieties available to go, no two visits are the same. Head Cider Maker and co-owner Mark Ray is constantly developing unique recipes that you will not find anywhere else. Ciders range from dry and preservative-free to others containing local fruits, hops, and unique barrel-aged offerings.
