Cider bars are trending. These craft destinations aren’t just beer bars with a couple of ciders on tap, either. Venues such as The Northman in Chicago or Wassail in New York City are dedicated cider bars pouring curated draft and bottle lists. Like craft-beer bars, cider bars offer an array of cider flavors and styles and feature cidermakers from across the globe. Here are twelve of them to seek out.

The Northman

(Chicago, Illinois)

This European-style tavern in Lincoln Square is known well as Chicago’s first cider bar. It brings together an extensive list of ciders on draft in and bottles with a menu inspired by dishes from Spain, France, and England. The Northman also offers a cider class series called Cider School and a calendar full of special tappings and guests.
