Cideries in Grand Rapids
Already internationally acclaimed for its craft beers, Grand Rapids is now earning recognition for its fast-growing production of hard ciders.
Quality ciders start with quality apples, and we have one of the world’s best apple-growing regions right in our backyard. Michigan is one of America’s top three apple states – and more than half of all Michigan apples are grown on the Fruit Ridge, a unique land feature 10 minutes north of downtown Grand Rapids.
Local cideries capitalize on this abundance to create an astonishing variety of fresh, crisp, thirst-quenching flavors. You can enjoy them in cidery tasting rooms and many local restaurants in addition to finding them on store shelves.

Sietsema Orchards and Cider Mill. The tasting room at this family farm offers handcrafted ciders on tap and by the can or bottle.
