Branch Out Cider

Fort Collins
Fort Collins, CO 80521


About Us:

Branch Out Cider is a local craft cidery in Northern Colorado with a focus on producing a unique and enjoyable alcoholic beverage from local apples. Our value hypothesis: We can create a community network of tree owners that will supply unwanted apples to support a local craft cidery.

Apples have a rich history in the United States from Thomas Jefferson's Orchard of Monticello to Johnny Chapman's (Appleseed) heroic journey planting apple trees in the new frontier. Apples in Northern Colorado also have a rich history. Arthur Gipson, Greeley's postmaster in 1871, is credited with establishing the first apple orchard in the region that same year. Early settlers to the region quickly realized apples as a reliable source of local food and began planting apple trees throughout the region. Remnants of this humble past can still be found in backyards across Northern Colorado.
