Brickworks Ciderhouse becomes the first local cider house to have its product sold by the LCBO
Celiacs (and cider lovers), Rejoice!

If you’re someone that suffers from Celiac Disease, or you simply have a love for ciders—and you absolutely must have something that’s produced locally— then it’s time to celebrate. After more than a year in business, Toronto’s own Brickworks Ciderhouse is set to sell its cider at the LCBO, making it the first local cider house to do so.

In an interview with the CBC, the company’s co-founder Adam Gerritts said that the accomplishment brings with it a “huge sense of pride.” He then went on to say, “It was an incredible amount of work producing this product and it’s going to be a real good day when we first get to go there and buy our product off the shelves.”

For those curious, the company is named after the Evergreen Brick Works (one of its facilities is pictured above), a community environment centre located along the Don Valley. Like the local it’s named after, Brickworks Ciderhouse is focused on sustainability; none of the apples it uses to brew its cider travel more than 300km from farm to production facility.

After a successful first year, the company plans to focus its aspirations on opening its own brewhouse and retail location at the Brick Works, as well as an orchard in the Don Valley.

Why not help them in that endeavour by checking out their cider once it hits store shelves? [Via CBC]
