Great cider elevates food just as well as great wine does, but the price is usually lower. The sophisticated blends from the cideries listed here are well worth the $10 to $25 you’d shell out. Alcohol shipping laws vary by state. If these cideries can’t ship to you, try finding one at Local Harvest, or visit our map of cider-makers, where you can add your own favorite producers. And don’t forget to ask whether your wine shop carries any local ciders — consumer interest is key to the success of this new-old industry.
