We’re dedicated to making complex craft ciders from simple, natural ingredients.
We combine traditional wisdom with new technology and equipment to create different ciders that range from dry to semi-sweet. At Six Byrd, we work to elevate cider and demonstrate the versatility of our fine craft.Out of frustration to find a quality dry cider, Six Byrd Cider was created to bridge the gap between wine and beer. Arizonans now have a local cidery that creates the "not overly sweet" cider found today. Ranging from dry to semi-sweet, we offer a cider that will suit anyone's palate.
