What IS United States of Cider?

United States of Cider is a collaborative, eclectic compendium & online journal dedicated to exploring and documenting the world of (hard) cider* with a focus on American cider culture.

As of 2019

UnitedStatesofCider.org is based in the Pacific Northwest and focused on exploring cider in North America with a serious nod to cider culture in Cascadia.

We Like Cider.


Established Dec 31, 2012 – with the 365 Days of Cider initiative to post or tweet about cider daily for all of 2013.

We write about cider here at UnitedStatesofCider.org and tweet about cider @hellocider. You can find us erratically on instagram and on a few select episodes of Heritage Radio’s Cider Sessions with host Jimmy Carbone, frequently at a cider tap somewhere in the Cascadia, and occasionally on the road – seeking cider.

If you have cider intel please feel free to leave a comment, send a tweet, or email us at unitedstatesofcider @ gmail dot com.

*It’s cider. Anything else is just juice.

  1. Great initiative! When will you start the world tour of ciders? NY state is hardly 6 hours away from us – welcome to come and try some of our cider anytime!


  2. On Saturday, May 11 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. the Third Annual Orcas Island Cider and Mead Festival will occur on the Village Green in Eastsound, WA. Up to 20 cider and mead producers from all over the Northwest, California and British Columbia will be offering tastes of 70+ varieties of ciders and meads to adults 21 and over in the big tasting tent perched next to our Saturday Farmers Market. Local musicians will entertain the throng while visitors enjoys the ciders and roam the market filled with artisans, organic produce and flowers. A beautiful way to spend a day on amazing Orcas Island just off the western coast of Washington State! Learn more at http://www.orcasislandciderfest.org.


  3. Thank you for liking two of my posts. Yesterday, editors in Canada and South Africa “came on board”. Tomorrow sees my method featured in an Australian gardening magezine. July, it’s the turn of HomeFarmer magazine in the UK with a four page walk through article. Momentum is building.
