The first of its kind in the city, Her Father’s features the largest collection of ciders in the city. Highlights include 9 rotating Ontario taps, which on our last visit included a Pinot Noir cider from Shiny Apple Cider in Niagara and a Lavender Perry from Spirit Tree Cider in Caledon.
This new cider house in Roncesvalles Village features lots of interesting ciders from around the world. Highlights include the Clafeld Rose Hip wine cider from Picton, Ontario and the surprisingly well-paired butter chicken with naan.
Long-time supporters of the craft cider movement in Ontario, Tequila Bookworm is an excellent spot to try the latest and greatest in cider, despite its name! Highlights include the elusive Wild Fermented Cider from Hinterland Winery.
Craft cider is slowly taking over this once craft-beer-only bar on The Danforth. Check out its website for live updates of what’s on tap – which currently includes hard-to-find experiments like the Forbidden Black Currant from Coffin Ridge in nearby Grey County.
This popular craft beer and cider bar has a rotating 26 tap line featuring loads of odd-ball sippers, including casks from West Avenue and the current summer favorite: the Revel Tepache, a Mexican inspired cider with pineapple and spices made in Hamilton.
