What’s the best drink for the fall season? (Besides Pumpkin-Spiced lattes.) You guessed it – cider! Here on the Central Coast, from San Luis Obispo to Tin City, Paso Robles, to Atascadero, we have plenty of small craft cider stops that are perfect on a crisp afternoon or evening. Here are 4 of our favorite cider stops so you can cheers to the fall season!


1. Bristols Hard Cider

Enjoy small batches of cider from local apples at Bristols Hard Cider! Their ciders are 100% apple juice and fermented on the native yeasts of the fruit. To create a wide array of cider flavors, they use different apples, casks, wine barrels, and stainless steel for a different taste in every cider. They mainly source their apples from See Canyon and Paso Robles. Enjoy a rotating tap of seasonal ciders with every visit.
