Our award winning burgers. We use local beef from Adrian Family Farms and each burger is hand formed made to order. We have been named Best Burger in Iowa and mentioned in Spoon University, USA today, Food Network etc. We make our own sauces in house and many of the side dishes and pickles.
What makes us unique??
We take pride in using locally sourced beef, hand forming our patties to order, house making our sides and sauces and keeping our menu small, but consistent and the highest quality possible. Our food pairs perfectly with our wide range of hard ciders that are available on tap. Our ciders range in flavor from dry and tart to sweet and fruity, guaranteed to please any pallet. We offer cider fights so you can sample them all and we have cans to go so you can take some home with you to enjoy. Cider cans are the perfect gift as well so make sure you stock up.

The four founders and owners, Hopi James, Annalisa Thompson, Clint Stephenson and Cole Fishback have been making hard cider together since 2013. They opened their first downtown location in 2014 (and won best burger in Iowa in 2015) and moved to their current location in 2018. The cidery and restaurant are now located under one roof in a beautiful timber framed taproom. The timber for the building was logged from the owners’ county forest and milled in the parking lot! The exquisite taproom/restaurant showcases breathtaking views and the patio seating is a dream. It is the perfect view for Iowa’s exquisite sunsets. You can view the cidery through the glass doors and if you’re lucky you can catch the owners in action and sample some of the newest creations. In addition to awesome burgers, Cider house has a full bar featuring house made cider, top shelf selections of liquors, unique cocktails and so much more.
