Locust Cider: There’s a new cider in town!

Drinkable and unique cider flavors.

Jason and Patrick Spears, a brother duo who founded Locust Cider, have been making cider since one of the them found out they could no longer drink beer because of an allergy. So they perfected the perfect blend of cider for a nice cold one. This past March, they opened a production facility as well as
a taproom in Woodinville.

The Spears brothers have worked very hard to turn a variety of Eastern Washington apples into drinkable ciders that preserve and highlight the flavor of apple. They only use two ingredients: apple juice and yeast. Locust Ciders are currently available in about two dozen local bars and grocery stores, and are gaining popularity!


  • Locust Original Dry: clean apple and pineapple notes. Low
    residual sugar and very drinkable.
  • Green Tea Infused: dry cider infused with Chinese decaf green tea to add bitterness that balances nicely with the apple flavor.
  • Dark Sweet Cherry: the “sweetest” cider with local dark cherries for a tart, full-flavored cider.
  • Summer Berry Cider: great as a crisp outdoor drink and finishes with light hint of blueberry.

SEATTLEITE TIP: we loved visiting the tasting room. It’s both dog and family-friendly. The atmosphere and service are wonderful. The Dark Sweet Cherry is our favourite and will be offered in stores very soon. The Locust Original Dry is very drinkable and not overly sweet.
