Most ciders are sweet, but not ours. We ferment our cider bone dry, until no sugar is remaining.
Bryant's vessel conditions all of its ciders. Every bottle, keg and can contains live yeast to naturally carbonate the cider.
Yep! The apples in our cider are grown on our farm. Bryant's never uses concentrates or waters our cider down like most mass market ciders.
Yeah we have flavor! Bryant's only uses whole ingredients that are organic or local whenever possible. We never use bulk extracts or juices to add flavor.
Low and slow isn't just for BBQ. We ferment and age our cider at low temperatures to ensure the best craft cider possible.
We hand bottle, keg and can everything. At least until we can afford expensive equipment ;)
We built our cidery to produce premium ciders using apples grown on our farm. Fermenting only in small batches in the old farm garage.
You won't get a processed cider here. We NEVER use concentrates, preservatives, artificial flavors, or any other chemicals in our cider. (We do use sulfites.)
We age our cider no less than three months to allow the cider to develop a distinctive flavor profile.
Every bottle we produce is hand-filled and bottle conditioned. (It's because we like you.)
Unicorn Fuel is a fully dry, brut cider infused with rose hips and hibiscus. The deep pink hue comes primarily from the organic hibiscus used in the infusion, with the rose hips offering more of an orange tint. The flavor profile is subtle, and the hibiscus offers a rich, mellow flavor and aroma while the rose hips bring stronger hints of citrus and acidity.
Brite Good is our flagship brut cider. We incorporate oak tannins for three weeks prior to bottling to enhance the mouthfeel while leaving a true cider aroma and flavor profile. This is a modern true cider with no flavoring.
Sumthin' Juicy is styled after a New England IPA. Its dry hopped three times with six different hop varieties. This easy drinking citrusy cider has a good nose of hops and a juicy, citrusy flavor profile.
Red Eye is a cold brewed coffee cider, brewed directly in the cider. We source our coffee beans locally from coffee shops around Richmond. If you need help getting a kick-start to your day, this is the cider for you!
Dark Unicorn is a smooth cider featuring our cult favorite, Unicorn Fuel, finished in Blue Mountain dark hollow barrels. This special release has notes of cherry and bourbon.
Satan’s Haven is a slightly bitter cider aged in dark hollow barrels from Blue Mountain and fermented with cocoa nibs and cayenne pepper—chocolatey with a little kick!
Crackberry is a delicious cranberry and rosemary cider that typically makes its appearance during the warmer seasons, but stay on the lookout because we love to surprise you with your favorites throughout the year!
80's throwback! Ecto-Cooler is made in honor of the old-school Hi-C drink. Sweet Orange Peel with some lactose for body. It's no wonder this one's a fan favorite!
[SEASONAL FOR FALL] Corpse Reviver is our gin inspired cider with star anise, angellica root and juniper berries. If you're a gin lover make sure to try out this seasonal release! Sorry gin lovers...this one is currently unavailable. Sign up for our news letter or follow us on our social accounts to find out when it's back!
Aries is our first cider from our Star Sign line. It's sweet yet spicy (just like the stereotypical Aries) with cocoa nibs, nutmeg, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper.
Astrology lovers, this one's for you! Taurus is fruity and earthy (earth signs unite!) with strawberry and matcha. (ps this one is limited edition while supplies last!)
