About Stem Ciders:
Stem Ciders is an urban cidery located in the heart of Denver’s RiNo District and in the City of Lafayette, Colorado. Founded in 2013 by Eric Foster and Phil Kao, two passionate entrepreneurs with a deep appreciation for craft and a strong commitment to reviving the cider tradition, Stem produces cider founded on three main principles: quality, style, and tradition.
We opened our RiNo cider house doors in January of 2014 with three ciders on tap and a mission to share with you the cider traditions we grew up with, and that we know and love. From the first batch of cider produced in 2011 – now known as Real Dry Apple Cider, to our seasonal ciders and monthly firkin experiments, we’re committed to producing the highest quality cider that brings those traditions to the forefront in Colorado and throughout the U.S. In early 2018, we added Acreage by Stem Ciders in Lafayette. Weaving beautiful and locally sourced food options with Stem’s craft cider offerings, Acreage will attract foodies and craft beverage aficionados alike in a modern, eclectic environment.
