City Orchard will bring locally made hard cider to Houston this fall
City Orchard announced Oct. 9 that it will be opening its doors later this fall at 1201 Oliver St., Houston. The cidery will produce hard ciders using apples from the Great Lakes region, where its co-owners Patrick Kwiatkowski and Mat Smith have ties. “City Orchard is a unique concept in that we’re bringing fresh-pressed juice from apples grown in the Great Lakes and using them to make cider in Houston,” Kwiatkowski said in a news release. The taproom will also serve beer brewed on-site as well as a selection of domestic and imported wines. It also will sell pizza, crepes, and other specialty bites from its City Orchard Food Truck. www.cityorchardtx.com
