Washington-based Yonder Cider has announced the launch of its new line of craft ciders that will hit stores and internet retail this Saturday. Picked and pressed in Wenatchee, Washington – the heart of Apple Country – Yonder’s unique approach creates ciders that are more full-flavored and complex than traditional modern ciders, while still remaining affordable.
For we lucky denizens of PhinneyWood, Saturday will also mark the official opening of ‘Yonder Bar,’ the to-go only retail shop for Yonder Cider. Located in Phinney Ridge on 1st Ave NW between 78th Street and 79th Street (one of Seattle’s now pedestrian-only Stay Healthy streets, so plan to ride, walk, or skip on by), Yonder Bar will offer four-packs and growlers to-go, along with merchandise, special releases and more. Initial hours will be Wednesday-Friday 3-8pm and Saturday-Sunday 12-8pm. A portion of the proceeds from Yonder Bar will be donated to the Phinney Neighborhood Association
“When we dreamed up Yonder, we also dreamed up the perfect tasting room – then COVID hit” said Caitlin Braam, founder of Yonder Cider. “We quickly pivoted, turned our garage into a little to-go spot, and now we couldn’t be more excited about Yonder Bar. We love adding something fun to the neighborhood, while bringing a little piece of Wenatchee to the heart of Seattle.”
Yonder Cider was born out of a true love for cider, both modern and traditional. With more than a decade of experience in each of their respective fields, the team at Yonder has spent the last nine months crafting the Yonder brand. Putting branding right alongside cidermaking in importance, Yonder Cider offers ciders as beautiful as the packaging it comes in, and through creative marketing, hopes to introduce an entirely new audience to the world of cider.
