About Ciderboys Cider Co.
Based in Stevens Point, Wis., Ciderboys Cider Co. makes its carbonated hard ciders with apple juice from fresh Washington State apples. The juice is heated to pasteurize it then fermented at cool temperatures in shining stainless steel tanks. Ciderboys uses a special hard-cider yeast imported from France, where hard ciders have quenched thirsts since the Middle Ages. The fermentation process is cool and slow, taking approximately two weeks for each batch. When fermentation is complete, the cider goes through a filtration process that renders a clear, sparkling liquid. No sugar is added to Ciderboys products, which are naturally gluten free.
