Old-school values, new-world sensibilities. Born in a barn, Blue Toad Cider honors the tradition and legacy of America’s first preferred beverage by brewing an all-natural and eminently drinkable hard cider using only locally grown Western New York apples. Rather than solely using European-style tart and bitter apples, Blue Toad uses a cider blend of three different apples (replete with natural seasonal variation) grown and pressed at Schutt’s Apple Mill in Webster, New York, which has been producing some of New York’s finest sweet cider since 1918. The sweeteners we use in our brewing process are also sourced locally, and our production takes place in our cidery at the Genesee Regional Market in Rochester.
We believe our cider is different – more authentic, more drinkable, more responsibly produced, more of an experience – than the more mass-produced ciders that may use imported apples. We hope you’ll treat yourself to a bottle or glass of our hard cider soon to savor that difference. We think you’ll be back for another.
