Nothing says fall quite like apple cider. Nothing says fun like HARD cider! Here are 4 awesome places in and around Rochester to get a delicious hard cider.


I'm not a beer fan, so I'm constantly seeking places to get a great glass of cider. Here are some of my faves in and around Rochester, in no particular order:

  • Fielders Choice Tap & Table

    Northfield, MN

    Just looking over their drink menu has me seriously craving a cider. They offer sweet, tart and bone dry, so whatever you're looking for, they got you covered.

    They also offer some unique food options like Steak Crostini, Sassy Swine Pizza and the #Merica burger!

  • Grand Rounds Brewing Co.

    Rochester, MN

    An option a little closer to home, right in downtown Rochester - Grand Rounds Brewing. They change their beer on the regular, but you'll always find something unique and refreshing.

    They too have an amazing selection of food as well, but make sure you try a dag!

  • Four Daughters Winery

    Spring Valley, MN

    Home of the Loon Juice! You can find this sweet treat at many places now, but it's worth the trip to Spring Valley to check out the vineyard. They often have live music, and the food is on point.

  • Tap House

    Rochester, MN

    New to town, or a Rochester native, the Tap House is a must check out place. They have a huge beer selection, and just as many fun cocktails. They have my favorite Aces Pear Cider on tap there.
