Atlanta’s First Cidery: A legend in the making

Located off Howell Mill Road in West Midtown, Urban Tree Cidery is the first of it’s kind here in Atlanta.   

Urban Cidery offers tastings and tours with 4-5 original ciders on tap, plus a fully stocked bar with local beers and cocktails.

There is a science behind making cider. Grapes and Hops Atlanta experienced a tasting, plus a tour of the back cidery room. We drank a sample of cider straight from their tanks without being processed into the cider that is ready “to drink” to the masses. 

"We are involved in every step of the process to let the very best characteristics shine through, “ said Tim Resuta, owner and head cider maker.

Our favorites included: The Classic, Barrel-Aged and Habanero Ginger.  The Classic is refreshing and bright.  It’s best paired with fish, fruit or soft cheeses. The Barrel-Aged Cider is fermented with champagne yeast.  It has hints of brown sugar, vanilla and oak.  It is best paired with roasted and grilled meats and strong cheeses.  The Habanero Ginger is one of a kind and trust us, you will just have to try it!

The space is quaint and rustic.  Every Thursday from 5:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., Urban Tree will offer special growler fill discounts on their on tap ciders.

We will be back from more!
