Vander Mill Cider Completes $600,000 Expansion and Begins Canning Hard Ciders

The People's Cider Company Batch #1 debuts at Hopcat and Georgio's in Downtown Grand Rapids

The Peoples Cider Co. very recently has started previewing their European-style dry cider at local Grand Rapids bars and restaurants, and I took advantage of the opportunity to meet up with owner Jason Lummen at the near-downtown cider making facility and talk about the new and exciting venture. For those looking for something a little different from the many sweeter tasting hard ciders that seem most abundant in the American market, Jason has been working on and developing his own brand of dry cider since his very first batch back in 2002. Recently obtaining a small winemaker’s license has allowed him the luxury and freedom to begin distributing at a much earlier stage than what it would take a small brewery to reach the same levels.
