The ciderboys were two ordinary people who had no money coming in and no product to sell, but what they had was an idea using a truly unique proposition: to create unique hard ciders blending unexpected fresh fruit flavors with the crisp taste of apple. Curiosity constantly fueled their determination; their refusal to accept ordinary common fruit set the standard by which their product would be judged. Founded in Stevens Point, Wisconsin, Ciderboys' hard cider is America's best-tasting hard cider according to Chicago's Beverage Testing Institute (BTI).
