DISTRIBUTOR TO SELL CIDER CREEK HARD CIDER IN UPSTATE YORK 

I mentioned we had some exciting announcements to share this week, well today marks the third big piece of news that we are releasing. We are trilled to announce that starting today we will be working with TJ Sheehan to represent our brand in the counties of; Broome, Cayuga, Chemung, Cortland, Genesee, Jefferson, Lewis, Livingston, Monroe, Onondaga, Ontario, Orleans, Oswego, Schuyler, Seneca, St. Lawrence, Steuben, Tioga, Tompkins, Wayne, Wyoming and Yates, New York. 

What does this mean? Well it means you can pretty much find Cider Creek Hard Cider anywhere in the state of New York (don't worry Albany, we are coming for you.)

This is really great news for our company because for awhile we were mostly sold and distributed throughout Massachusetts. Now though, New York, the place where we grew up, call home, and produce our craft hard cider, has the product widely available across the state.

So keep your eyes peeled for us in Rochester, Syracuse, Corning, Ithaca, Elmira, Dansville, Hornell, Horseheads and everywhere in between, and, if for some reason you're somewhere where you want to enjoy a delicious, craft hard cider, but they don't sell it, click on the button below to tell us where it is and we will be sure to visit the location with a smile (and delicious Cider Creek Hard Cider.)

Cider Creek Isn't at my  Favorite Watering Hole. Help!

Wegmans Welcomes Craft Hard Cider in New York State

CIDER CREEK HARD CIDER TO BE SOLD IN ALL 45 NEW YORK LOCATIONS

As a kid growing up in Buffalo, (Lancaster to be exact,) I always thought that it would be cool to work at Wegmans. Their stores were cozy and made you feel like you are at a really big farmers market full of fresh, good quality products. When I lived in Boston I missed all things Wegmans, produce, bulk candy, that home-y feeling. Never though, did I ever imagine that one day I'd actually sell a product at Wegmans. 

Wegmans believes in local; they believe in fresh, quality, products and they believe in the growing hard cider category. Starting early March you'll be able to find both our Premium Farmhouse and Saison Reserve Hard Ciders on the shelves at all 45 Wegmans locations across New York State. As we release seasonals, and for those of you following us on social media you've seen a sneak peek into what we are brewing up, they will also carry our seasonals. 

A big thanks to the Wegmans family for supporting local brands and getting behind craft hard cider. 

If for some reason you are in Wegmans and don't see Cider Creek Hard Cider (it might take some time to get to all stores,) click on this link to tell us which store you shop at and we'll be sure to get right on it!
