Our Angry Orchard Ciders are available in all 50 states (and Canada!) Our Cider Finder will help you locate Angry Orchard in your area. Enter your zip code and a list of locations will pop up. (You can zoom in and out to get a better picture.) When you find a location, we suggest you call ahead to check on inventory.
Drinkers love our Angry Orchard Cider House Collection. The Collection features our very popular styles, made in small batches, and sometimes they sell out quickly. So, call your local liquor store, and ask if they have The Cider House Collection or can get it for you. Unfortunately, we can’t sell our Cider House collection in Pennsylvania, Virginia or New Hampshire.
Finding kegs can take a little extra time. Our Cider Finder can often help, but it doesn’t include 1/2bbl kegs of Angry Orchard Crisp Apple or Angry Orchard Rose. Call your local wholesaler or liquor store to place an order ahead of time to increase the chances that you won’t be disappointed.
The availability of cans is on the rise! We now offer several styles in cans. Our Cider Finder will steer you to our retail locations, and the employees there should be able to order them if they aren’t on the shelf.
Styles currently available in cans are:
Crisp Apple in 12 oz. and 16 oz. cans
Rose in 12 oz. and 16 oz. cans
Explorer Variety Pack in 12 oz. cans
There are several explanations for it. We make many of our popular styles in small batches, so they often sell out. Let your local liquor store know which Angry Orchard style you want, and they should be able to snag some for you from their distributor.
Unfortunately no. Federal and state laws prohibit us from selling ciders online or shipping them. Luckily, there are exceptions. If you come to our Innovation Cider House in Walden, New York, you will A) have a great time, get to wander around the orchard, sample various ciders, meet or make friends, and take a tour. Our Orchard is a beautiful 70 mile drive north of midtown Manhattan. B) You will be able to buy the latest specialty and small batch ciders.
Our (lucky) cider makers travel the world in search of the very best cider apples. After touring countless orchards in the U.S., France and Italy, it dawned on them that some of the best apples for making cider actually look gnarly and angry, unlike apples you’d find at the grocery store. The apples produce more tart and tannic juice, so they are perfect for cider.
Today we make most of our Angry Orchard ciders at our production facilities in Ohio and Pennsylvania. The heart and soul of Angry Orchard, however, dwells at our Innovation Cider House (and orchard) in Walden, New York where our cider maker, Ryan Burke, tinkers and invents wonderful new cider recipes. Visitors can tour the cidery, enjoy samples of experimental new ciders, buy a few bottles to take home, and maybe hang for a concert in our Tree House. Click here to learn more about visiting us.
We’d love to have you come visit us on our orchard in Walden, NY! Click here to learn more. Every year we expand the activities at the Orchard.

The good news is that cider doesn’t go “bad”, and the other good news is that Angry Orchard stays fresh in a bottle or can for about a year. We don’t often find old cider on the shelves, because it’s popular and gets snapped up. As with most beverages, over time, the flavor profile changes a bit. Snow White’s poison apple notwithstanding, we believe than an apple a day, whether in solid or liquid form, is still a good practice.
Great news: Angry Orchard ciders are made with naturally gluten free ingredients. Just to be safe, we still test our cider-making equipment to be sure there’s been no cross-contamination.
Pry off caps create a better seal on the bottle. Twist-offs occasionally leak air which isn’t good for the flavor of our ciders. We want our Angry Orchard styles to be “cidery fresh” when you open them. Now, you also have the choice to opt for canned cider as well.
At this time, we do not host private events. The Cider House and Tree House get pretty busy “in season”, so we operate on a democratic first come, first serve basic.
There are lots of orchards in the Hudson Valley that grow eating apples and encourage visitors to “pick their own” during the season, which starts after Labor Day. Our apples are pretty tart, however, and not good for eating. Plus, we need all the apples we grow for our ciders, so we ask you not to pick our apples.

We’re animal lovers, but for practical and legal reasons we can’t have animals in the Cider House. The one exception, of course, is trained service animals, and even then, we ask owners to avoid the areas where there’s food.
Come one, come all! Families with children and others under 21 are welcome at our Orchard. But you’ll need a valid ID for us to serve you cider. Different rules apply to our Treehouse Tours and other events in our Treehouse. These activities welcome only the 21+ crowd.
We always have a local food vendor on-site with a variety of food available for purchase. Check out our events schedule here. We ask you not to bring your own food or beverages to the Orchard.
Yes, absolutely! We serve several styles our most popular and limited release specialty ciders on draft in the Cider House. In our gift shop we sell growlers and bottles of new, specialty ciders we make here for you to take home.
The Angry Orchard Innovation Cider House opened in 2016, and every year we expand what we offer. During the summer season we have lots of events, concerts and special programs. Check out our Events page and our Facebook page. Our events are popular and tend to sell out quickly.
