Pop quiz: Can you name five cideries in your state? The growth of craft cider has been so explosive over the past few years in the U.S., that it’s entirely possible there are cideries in a 60- or 100-mile radius from your home that you aren’t even aware of! There’s a new interactive map tool launched by Cidercraft Magazine that can help you discover (or remember) how much great cider is available in your own back yard! This cider locator map, a collaboration with NearestYou, a digital mapping and brand marketing platform, is available for desktop and mobile devices; use your zip code or allow the map to use your location to find cideries nearby.
You can set the search radius between 1 and 1,000 miles, and when the results show up, they’re listed on the map. If you tap or click on the red location pins on the map, all the pertinent information about the cidery is available, including the option to get directions from your current location through Google or Apple maps. If you prefer to peruse your options via a list, the same information is broken out below the map feature, organized from closest to furthest away from you. Right now, the map is focusing on cideries in the United States and Canada, but the plan is to expand it to cover the globe.
If any information needs updating, or you’re a producer and would like your cidery added to the map, head over to this form. Keep this handy tool bookmarked on your browser to discover more great local cider from the comfort of your own home!
