Turning pages + popping bottles!

The 6-cider pack includes ciders featured in 6 different chapters of Beth's book. The 12-cider pack includes other ciders featured throughout her book, and a couple recent releases that will please cider enthusiasts and beer lovers alike. 

The 6-Pack includes

  • Lassen Traditional Cider's Newtown Pippin (Chapter 1)
  • Eden Specialty Ciders' Tree Beard Hopped Cider (Chapter 2)
  • Two Broads Ciderworks Las Reinas Cider (Chapter 3)
  • Far West Cider's You Guava Be Kidding Me (Chapter 4)

The 12-Pack also includes

  • Eden's Heirloom Blend Ice Cider (Chapter 8)
  • Liberty Garratza (Chapter 3)
  • Empyrical Inquiry (PTP Recommendation for Chapter 5 and should remind drinkers of a world class Belgian Triple)
  • Pet Project Golden Russet Single Varietal Cider (PTP Recommendation for Chapter 2, with mildly bitter, tropical forward aromatics and flavors that should appeal to modern IPA drinkers)
  • Little Pomona Table Cider (PTP Recommendation for Chapter 3, one any fan of Lambic or Gueuze style beers will surely enjoy)
  • Bauman's Cider's Kingston Black (PTP Recommendation, a cider with soft, pillowy phenolic aromatics and a slight sweetness to it reminiscent of a Bavarian Hef)

We ship cider in boxes that safely hold 4-bottles, 6-bottles, or 12-bottles. Order in one of those quantities (or multiples of those quantities) to maximize your shipping value. For example, if you order 2-3 ciders, there will be room left in the box and it won't meaningfully change the shipping costs to fill the box.

We do have 1-bottle boxes, but in most all instances it will cost the same to ship you a full 4-bottle box.

Shipping to a business address will usually save you a few bucks!

Shipping cost estimates:

  • Pacific Northwest/West Coast: Shipping anywhere in the Pacific Northwest or West Coast is relatively inexpensive. Almost all box sizes cost $16-21 to ship. Same is true for most destinations in the Mountain Time Zone.
  • Central Standard Time Zone / Midwest: A 4-bottle or 6-bottle box will usually cost $18-24 to ship. A 12-bottle box will usually cost $22-30 to ship. Variance depends on weight and how far from a FedEx/UPS shipping center your delivery address is.
  • East Coast: A 4-bottle or 6-bottle box will usually cost $20-25 to ship. A 12-bottle box will usually cost $25-35 to ship. Variance depends on weight and how far from a FedEx/UPS shipping center your delivery address is.

Important Shipping Information:

  • We are able to ship cider to most, but not all, states.
  • Legally, someone 21+ must be present at the time of delivery to sign for the cider. We cannot ship to PO Boxes or AFO/FPO addresses.
  • Shipping prices vary by weight and destination. How far you are from Seattle (where we ship from), and remote vs. central your shipping destination is, and how heavy your box is will make shipping vary.
  • The bigger the box, the less you pay in shipping on a per-bottle basis. We ship in 1, 4, 6, and 12 bottle boxes - order in those quantities for the best shipping value. The size of the box matters as much as the weight, so don't leave empty slots in your bottle box! Shipping a 1-2 bottles will cost the same as shipping 4-6 bottles in most cases. Shipping a 12-bottle box is usually only $3-5 more than shipping a 4-6 bottle box.
  • Re-delivery and returns are the responsibility of the customer.
  • We don't recommend shipping during periods of extreme weather. If your area has weather of concern, please contact us and we can hold your order. 

We can usually accommodate rush requests for delivery or pickup. Please e-mail us at or call/text us at (206)395-4008.

We offer home delivery of cider orders for customers in the Seattle area, including the east-side. Someone 21+ must be available to accept the delivery. We will be flexible in scheduling a delivery that works for you. Most deliveries are made within a few days of the order being placed.
