FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

One Tree Hard Cider Expands Their Distribution in Washington, Idaho, and Montana

SPOKANE, WA – March 14, 2016 – One Tree Hard Cider has partnered with distributor Eagle Beverage to make its cider available to craft cider fans in Montana, and with Craig Stein Beverage to bring its cider to the Boise, ID and Vancouver, WA areas. These new distribution deals will help One Tree Hard Cider meet the growing demand for high-quality craft cider in the Pacific Northwest.

One Tree Hard Cider continues to distribute their cider throughout Washington State, with distribution by Click Wholesale in western Washington, and Click Distributing in eastern Washington. Owner Neal Hennessy says, “We’ve had a great response to our cider throughout Washington and Northern Idaho, and think our flavor-forward, all-natural ciders are the reason for this. We’re confident that cider-lovers throughout the country will agree!”

These new distribution deals reflect the continued growth of One Tree Hard Cider, on track to produce over 2000 barrels in 2016. “We’re excited to be expanding into new markets, growing as a company, and sharing our cider with more and more people. 2016 is going to be a big year for One Tree Hard Cider,” owner Grant Barnes says.

Eagle Beverage will begin distributing One Tree Hard Cider to Montana in April 2016.

Craig Stein Beverage will begin distributing One Tree Hard Cider to Southern Idaho and Vancouver, WA in April 2016.

2016 Update!

Good morning everyone, Grant here! I thought I would update everyone with some exciting 2016 news and things we are working on for early 2016. First I would like to say thank you to EVERYONE who has supported us. It truly means a lot. Compliments on Untappd, emails and phone calls–we cannot say thank you enough.

So What’s New

So let’s start out saying first off, 2015 you guys were thirsty! We have tried to keep up on bottling and draft but as you have seen there have been “shortages” of One Tree in some areas. Believe me, we are trying to get cider out as fast as possible! Nathan (our bottling monkey-haha)  has been hard at work every day trying to fulfill orders at the fastest pace. We started off with around 21 or 26 kegs, and our fleet has grown to well over 1,000 kegs in circulation from Sandpoint, Idaho, to San Juan Island, Washington, and bottling has scaled to such a size that we now have enlisted help. We have just purchased a new brite tank to increase production volume. Starting Monday 1/11/2016 we will start bottling with a Meheen! A Meheen is an amazing bottling machine that not only speeds the process up, but also allows better quality control of fill levels in the bottles, and insures no to limited loss of carbonation during filling. Exciting right?

Cider House

When announced, we had every intention of opening the Cider House before the end of the year (2015). That was a little optimistic.  We play a balance game at times to make sure everything is taken care of. As mentioned above, you guys drank a TON of our cider in 2015, so we made the decision to put all our time and effort into production to make sure that the shelves are always stocked and draft is always available. The Cider House IS still coming, and we want to do it right. Our new, more realistic, goal is to open before this summer. We, of course, will share updates on our various social media platforms as progress takes place.

New Ciders

We have some fun things planned for 2016! We will see a small return of Huckleberry released sometime this month (January), and then we will start on our newest cider, Dark Cherry. This will be avaible in 22oz Bottles as well as on draft. This might also become our newest 16oz-4 pack can release!

TL:DR (To Long, Didn’t Read)

2016 will be fun, We have increased our production capabilities, new ciders are coming soon and THANK YOU!

 

Cheers Everyone,

Sausage & Cider Festival in Covington

One Tree Hard Cider attended the Sausage & Cider Festival in Covington, Washington this past weekend…and we had a blast! Our favorite part of our job is meeting our customers and hearing how much you love our cider! You’re the reason we do what we do! Lemon Basil was quite a hit in the summer heat, and we blew through our keg in record-time! Cranberry was a close-second and a great option for people who like things a little more tart!

We have some family in Seattle and they were able to come support One Tree! This really is a family business for us, and we appreciate your continued support. We have quite a few more events on the horizon, so check out our Event Calendar (link on the menu above) and come join us!

Crisp Apple Tall Boy Cans

Our first batch of Crisp Apple cans should be arriving in stores near you soon! Spokes Canning spent two days in our shop, helping us get our army of apples into cans and out the door…now it’s your job to get them into your ice chest!
