We're opening the first cidery in Deep Ellum. 

Come August, we will be the second cidery to open its doors in Dallas, TX. 

Our goal is to bring dry, refreshing and sophisticated hard apple cider to the people of North Texas, and we want you to be a part of it. Local craft cider is still very difficult to find around the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, and we're going to change that. Not only will we be handcrafting our cider on-site at our Deep Ellum location, but we'll utilize local ingredients and create a unique product that appeals to the community. We are all about innovation, edge, and imaginative new flavor profiles. 

Most people think that hard cider has to be overly sweet, and that's not true! Our cider is clean and crisp with the effervescence of champagne. It's unlike anything on the market, and we can't wait to have you join our efforts to bring Trinity Cider to the heart of Dallas. 

Backer Rewards

We're rewarding backers with all kinds of cool merchandise that shows the world that you're a founding member of Trinity Cider in Deep Ellum. All products listed below are one-of-a-kind and will never be sold or offered again!

 In addition to the traditional Trinity Cider logo, all merchandise shown above will have specialized Founding Member insignia prominently displayed. 

Risks and challenges

Sure, every business has it's challenges! But it's nothing we can't handle. Our cidery will open, bottom line.

Of course any new business runs the risk of losing patrons after a certain amount of time. Worst-case scenario, people stop coming in the door and we aren't able to sustain a thriving cidery.

However, with our location in Deep Ellum, carefully selected space and foot traffic, we believe our cidery will overcome any potential longterm difficulties. Not to mention that our veteran cider-makers are highly skilled in their craft, so we foresee the community embracing our business.

Also, we'll keep our fingers crossed that America doesn't encounter another era of Prohibition : )
