Bringing Cider Back to the People: The Story of 2 Towns Ciderhouse

Updated: Nov 12, 2023

Ah, cider. The crisp, refreshing drink that's perfect for any season. It's no wonder that 2 Towns Ciderhouse was born out of a rainy Pacific Northwest night over pints of craft beer. Since then, 2 Towns has become a premium total beverage company that creates the best craft beverages on the market. And if you're a beer lover who hasn't dabbled in the world of cider, let us convince you to give it a try.


Back in 2010, childhood friends Lee Larsen and Aaron Sarnoff-Wood decided to utilize their access to Pacific Northwest apples and launch a cidery. The friends had traveled through Europe and were inspired to bring their love for cider back to the states. In honor of the impact, Corvallis and Eugene had on them, they named their company 2 Towns Ciderhouse.

Lee and Aaron wanted to create a true craft cider that respected the long history of cidermaking. They started with the highest quality, whole ingredients from local farms and took no shortcuts in crafting their ciders. Their goal was to bring cider back to the people and show them what true craft cider was all about.


At 2 Towns, they believe that "real cider starts with real fruit." They use locally sourced apples that are processed in their very own mill. They don't use concentrate or artificial flavorings, so you know you're getting the real deal. They also create unique and innovative flavors using natural ingredients like spices and herbs.

Their dedication to true craft cider has paid off in the form of numerous awards and recognition. Their flagship cider, BrightCider, has won multiple gold medals at the Great Lakes International Cider and Perry Competition. Their Made Marion cider, which features

Oregon-grown Marionberries, has also won numerous awards.

Bringing Cider to the Masses:

2 Towns has come a long way since its inception. They've not only created amazing ciders but have also branched out into other segments within the alcohol beverage space. They produce hard seltzers using the same quality ingredients and dedication to crafting that goes into their ciders.

Their dedication to their roots and local communities is evident not only in their name but also in the way they give back. They donate a portion of their sales to local charitable organizations and have even created a program called "Community Cider," where they partner with local orchards to create a unique cider that benefits local non-profits.

2 Towns Ciderhouse is a company that truly believes in the power of craft beverages and their ability to bring people together. Their passion for creating the best cider possible is evident in every bottle, and it's no wonder they've won numerous awards and recognition. If you're a beer lover who hasn't tried cider yet, we highly recommend giving 2 Towns a try. Who knows, you might just find a new favorite drink.
