Our Cider

We are craft beer and wine lovers too, and you will taste and see that influence in all of our ciders. We almost exclusively use beer yeast to impart flavors that we love finding in our favorite craft beers. We plan to run seasonal ciders with consumer input. Try us with your most creative, weird sounding cider ideas and you might find it in a bottle or on tap at your favorite cider dispensing abode.

By Brendan Kearns

Calgary’s newest cidery, Lekker Cider, headed up by husband and wife team , Elizabeth & Brendan, is making clean, fresh styles of cider using Pacific Northwest apples and a variety of yeasts to achieve unique, yet subtle, flavour profiles.
