Stem Ciders News

Acreage

“Up a steep hill on the east edge of town is Acreage by Stem Ciders, a high point in both the topographic and culinary landscapes of Lafayette. Here, diners can enjoy panoramic mountain views from the light-filled main dining room, the outdoor deck beside a firepit, the gravel-paved cider garden, or the Back Forty, a drinks-only area that includes a playground, yard games, and Adirondack chairs. (Yes, it’s perfect for little ones who don’t tolerate long periods at the dinner table.) You’ll be hard-pressed to find a seared salmon cooked to as buttery perfection as the one on the menu, alongside other comforts such as duck confit poutine, Bavarian pretzels, and patatas bravas. Also to crave: carefully constructed entrées, including cornish game hen with polenta cakes, bison burger, and braised short rib that pair perfectly with a Stem cider (or a cider slushie) on tap.”

meet the new wave of american cider makers: food & wine

“As the director of innovation and quality for Denver’s Stem Ciders, Patrick Combs prefers to think like a painter. And artists require the right medium. Every five days, the urban cidery sends a truck driver to southern Washington to retrieve freshly pressed culinary and dessert apples that will then be fermented with white wine yeast, creating what Combs calls a “blank canvas.” He then fills his culinary palette with lemongrass, oolong tea, turmeric, and grapes, creating ciders evocative of rosé wine or a salted-cucumber snack. “One of our cofounders jokes that our official slogan should be, ‘Wow, that’s actually pretty good,'” Combs says, laughing.”

Fast-forward almost a decade, Stem Ciders has quietly become a launchpad and safety net for northern Colorado craft beverage brands, fruiting far more than just award-winning dry ciders.”
