Threadbare Cider and Mead

What makes your products or services unique? What will people get from your business that they won’t get elsewhere?

Threadbare provides the highest quality cider and mead made with local ingredients. Our Cider House in Spring Garden serves Threadbare Cider on draft, craft cocktails made with Wigle Whiskey spirits, local beer and sourdough pizza from the Threadbare Kitchen.

What’s the best way that interested customers can connect with you or find more information?

What inspires your work?

Our name is inspired by Johnny Chapman, or Johnny Appleseed, who walked to Pittsburgh from Massachusetts in the 1790s in his threadbare clothing. Johnny Chapman spent the rest of his long life collecting apple seeds from Cider Mills along the Monongahela River. He then carried these seeds across the frontier into Ohio and Indiana to establish orchards for frontiers people moving westward. His work inspired us to continue the legacy of producing cider with locally grown apples.

How can people best support you or your community as we recover from the pandemic?

Visit the Threadbare Cider House! Drink a cider (or two!), eat a sourdough pizza from the Threadbare Kitchen, and buy a bottle of cider to enjoy at home!

Are there any unique events, initiatives, sales, or opportunities at your store or community that people should be aware of?

On Saturday, 6/19 Threadbare is releasing Strawberry Rhubarb Cider. We are offering a bottle sale on 3 packs of Strawberry Rhubarb for the release, $45 for 3 Bottles (Save $9.)
