More cider is headed to the city. Atlanta Hard Cider Co. hopes to break ground along Marietta Boulevard in Westside this summer, according to the Atlanta Business Chronicle [paywall] and the cidery’s website. Launched last Fall, Mark and Liz Deno say they’re bringing “true and authentic all-natural craft cider back to the South.”

Atlanta Hard Cider will be located just south of Elaine Avenue and the M West condo complex. The planned 11,000-square-foot-plus production facility includes a large tasting room with 40 taps, an outdoor patio with food trucks and live music, and private events space. It’s also steps from the future Westside-Northside portion of the Beltline trail. Atlanta Hard Cider will be open Wednesday - Sunday.

The area is already priming itself for future Beltline expansion with the cidery’s nearby neighbors Bone Garden, Star Provisions, Bacchanalia, and Top Golf on Ellsworth Industrial, and future breweries Steady Hand and Bold Monk set to build facilities in the neighborhood.

The Denos say they began making cider as an alternative to beer due to Mark’s gluten intolerance. Their cider is currently being brewed and pressed at a 100-year-old upstate New York apple orchard and can be purchased at select Publix, Whole Foods, and Krogers as well as at the Roof at Ponce City Market.

No word yet as to whether the Deno’s future plans include using Georgia-grown apples.

Eater Atlanta has reached out to Atlanta Hard Cider for further information.

Metro Atlanta currently has two other cideries: Urban Tree on Howell Mill Road in Westside and Treehorn on South Marietta Parkway in Marietta.
