The Cider Junction
TAPROOM & BOTTLE SHOP
A place to explore food and cider
We invite you to Silicon Valley's first Cider Bistro - a place where American and European style small plates are paired with craft ciders from around the world (and craft beers too!).
The Cider Junction brings together the ``old`` and the ``new``:
From old world style small plates like flatbreads with traditional European toppings to the ``new world`` staples like pulled pork sliders and artisanal cheese plates.
From craft ciders made in the traditional style (dry, aged, sometimes still, sometimes sparkling) to experimental ciders fermented or infused with hops, charcoal and mint. We offer ciders on tap and in bottles and cans. Our friendly staff will help you find the perfect pairing of small plates and ciders.
Our ambience leans on Santa Clara Valley’s rich history of orchards in a casual and friendly atmosphere.
What exactly is a craft cider?
Cider is technically a fruit wine. Craft Cider has at its base either fresh pressed apples or 100% apple juice (i.e. the cider maker bought the juice, not the apples). The often small batches are then fermented (like wine), sometimes with the addition of fruit/puree/juices or herbs. Some bring them to market in a few weeks, others let them mature for months or even years. It is not brewed, i.e. there is no heat applied or water added.
We have over 20 taps for on-site consumption and 50+ ciders in cans and bottles To Go, plus craft beer and a selective wine offering.
