Pride Cans Have Arrived

🏳️‍🌈 You’ll want to get your hands on our Pride cans! 🏳️‍🌈

Available for a limited time, we’re offering our award-winning Barrel-Aged craft cider in special Pride cans (6.5% ABV) at our taproom and at retailers carrying UrbanTree cider around Atlanta.

Our Barrel-Aged cider is made by fermenting hand-pressed apple juice with white wine yeast before aging it in rum barrels; the end result is a sturdy, dry cider with hints of brown sugar, woody vanilla and oak. 

Bottle & Board – Every Friday in November!

You asked, we listened. Starting this Friday, September 27th, we will be open on Fridays!

To celebrate, we’re throwing a Bottle & Board party from 4-10 pm! What is Bottle & Board you ask? For a great deal of $30 you will get a beautiful charcuterie board to share with your friends and any 750 mL cider to pair!

This deal will be available every Friday through the month of November.

UrbanTree FC “Fan Cider” – Now in Cans!

Earlier this week, we celebrated the launch of our first canned cider––UrbanTree FC “Fan Cider!”

A medium dry and complex drink specially crafted for Atlanta United 2 fans, UrbanTree FC “Fan Cider” (6.5% ABV) features light apple notes and full-bodied flavors, making for a crisp and effervescent cider that doubles as a refreshing game-day drink and ideal accompaniment to savory tailgate foods like BBQ, burgers, dips and hot wings.

We first released the fan cider on draft after being named the Official Local Cider Partner of Atlanta United 2, the United Soccer League Championship (USL Championship) affiliate of Major League Soccer’s Atlanta United.

Introducing Black Velvet!

The newest addition to our line-up, Black Velvet is a seasonal cider with notes of cherry and vanilla. It was barrel-aged in a bourbon barrel from Ghost Coast Distillery in Savannah since last May, and it pairs well with savory dishes such as strong cheeses, grilled foods, and roasted veggies.

The name for Black Velvet was submitted by one of our guest’s during our second anniversary celebration in March 2018. We held a competition encouraging everyone to come up with flavors and names for new releases, and we loved this idea!

Stop by our cidery in West Midtown to sip on Black Velvet, enjoy it as part of a seasonal cider flight, or bring some home with you in a growler. It’ll be around for a limited time!

To those who wish to branch out from tradition, try the Ginger Habanero. Originally a seasonal flavor that Urban Tree had when they first opened, it became so popular that it earned a place as one of their staples.
