The Dry Cider

Forget everything you know about cider. Bad Seed is the first zero grams sugar, gluten free, delightfully strong hard cider put into a can.

"These guys are not messing around! Bad Seed made some of the most interesting dry ciders I've ever had the pleasure to taste."

- Billy M., Bad Seed fan


Along with our Dry Hard Cider, come sample all the small-batch ciders we offer on draft. We feature over 30 rotating taps of our cider, as well as local Hudson valley craft beers.

Flagship Dry Hard Cider

Fermented with a sauvignon blanc yeast and then conditioned in this very can, we've crafted a dry cider that is similar to an apple champagne. All that you're drinking is a full pound of pressed apples, fermented to full dryness. Nothing else. We hope you enjoy drinking it as much as we enjoyed making it.

Our Story

Here at Bad Seed, we seek to advance the craft cider industry through mixing old and new cider techniques and craft beer influences. Our ciders are made from 100% fresh pressed Hudson Valley apples, primarily grown by us on our sixth generation family farm in Highland, NY. We are the first American company to put a truly dry, 0g sugar cider into a can.
