Minneapolis Cider Company: Mpls, MN Formerly Lionheart. Lionheart was born from a opportunity to turn our passion from a University of Minnesota class project into a business and we ran with it. In the spring of 2015 we partnered with a Jester and Judge Cider Company of Stevenson, Washington to produce our first commercial batch. Four-packs Lionheart Original hit store shelves on July 14th, 2015. We’re now starting to work towards building a cidery and taproom here in the Twin Cities.
Lionheart by definition means courageous. We believe it takes a lionhearted person to make their way throughout the world, figure out who they want to be, and what kind of mark they want to leave on this place. We hope that Lionheart encourages people to do just that, to get out of their everyday, meet new people, try new things and share different experiences, all with a great cider in hand.
Sociable Cider Werks: NE Mpls In our path to discovering the best apples for the perfect midwestern cider we were consistently thrilled by the excellent sugar and acid profiles of our apples, but were always underwhelmed by their bitterness.
Bitter apples, also known as spitters for their acrid flavor, are really only good for making hard cider. So we did what any reasonable brewer would do… We turned to hops and grains to add bitterness and body. The result is tart, dry and flavorful with a well balanced body. Its not your typical cloyingly sweet macro-cider. Its decidedly different. Its delightfully Sociable.
