Her Father�s Cider Bar + Kitchen
119 Harbord St, herfathers.ca
The first of it�s kind in the city, Her Father�s features the largest collection of ciders in the city. Highlights include the 9 rotating Ontario taps, which on our last visit included a Pinot Noir cider from Shiny Apple Cider in Niagara and a Lavender Perry from Spirit Tree Cider in Caledon.
391 Roncesvalles Ave, ciderhouseroncy.com
This new cider house in Roncesvalles Village features lots of interesting ciders from around the world. Highlights include the Clafeld Rose Hip wine cider from Picton, Ontario and the surprisingly well-paired butter chicken with naan.
512 Queen Street West, tequilabookworm.ca
Long time supports of the craft cider movement in Ontario, Tequila Bookworm is an excellent spot to try the latest and greatest in cider, despite its name! Highlights include the hard to find Wild Fermented Cider from Hinterland Winery.
The Only CafA�
972 Danforth Ave, theonlycafe.com
Craft cider is slowly taking over this once craft-beer-only bar on The Danforth. Check out their website for live updates of what�s on tap � which currently includes hard to find experiments like the Forbidden Black Currant from Coffin Ridge in Grey County.
612 College St, birreriavolo.com
This popular craft beer & cider bar has a rotating 26 tap line featuring loads of odd-ball sippers, including casks from West Avenue and our current summer favorite: the Revel Tepache, a Mexican inspired cider with pineapple and spices made in Hamilton.
