4 Craft Cider Tasting Rooms in Bellingham & Whatcom County

With so many award-winning craft breweries, Bellingham is known far and wide for having an exceptional beer scene. But it's also becoming a hot spot for delicious cider. Over the past few years, craft cideries have begun to pop up around Bellingham — transforming our once-sleepy cider scene into an up-and-coming industry. Here’s our roundup of four must-try cider tasting rooms in Bellingham.

Bellingham Cider Company

If you’re looking to pair your cider with a full-service food experience, Bellingham Cider Company is the answer. Their family-friendly restaurant overlooking the Bellingham waterfront is a great place for cider lovers and newcomers alike. In addition to classic dry and semi-sweet ciders, Bellingham Cider Company offers an assortment of flavors. Blackberry Ginger, Blueberry Lemonade, and Cherry Vanilla are just a few of the small-batch ciders you’ll find on tap.

Complement your cider with a bite from the busy kitchen. Here you’ll find fresh salads and savory appetizers served alongside salmon, steak, spaghetti and more. If you’re seeking a cider alternative, you’ll also find beer, wine, and craft cocktails on the menu. They even serve brunch on the weekends. With such a wide variety of offerings, everyone can find something to love at Bellingham Cider.

Honey Moon Mead & Cider

A longtime Bellingham favorite, Honey Moon has been serving up mead and cider from its downtown hideaway since 2005. The meadery doubles as an atmospheric cocktail lounge, offering classic cocktails alongside their house-made cider, mead, and comfort foods--all in a dreamy, candle-lit setting. Comfortable booth seating and live entertainment from musicians, poets, and even belly-dancers are just more reasons to steal away to Honey Moon for an evening of good food, drinks, and fun. 

Lost Giants Cider Company

Lost Giants is the cidery for beer lovers. Opened in 2018 by three former Kulshan Brewing employees, they specialize in producing dry ciders for canning and distribution. Housed in a huge industrial space off Meador Avenue, Lost Giants’ production facility features a spacious tasting room with a variety of colorful and experimental ciders on tap.

Walking in, you’ll likely be greeted by one of the owners behind the bar. They can help you pick and choose several ciders for your sample tray, from the excellent dry and heirloom ciders to unique flavors like jalapeño cucumber, pineapple habanero, and elderberry. Sip your samples while admiring the massive mountain panorama across from the bar, featuring an expansive view of Mount Baker and the North Cascades from Tomyhoi Peak. 

Bellewood Farms & Distillery

Bellewood Farms in Lynden is known for its apples, with 25,000 apple trees and more than 20 different varieties. Experience their fruitful bounty yourself by sampling their crisp, orchard-to-glass cider. You can purchase hard cider--along with local wines, gourmet cheeses, and seasonal fruits--from the farm's country market. Or head to Bellewood Café & Bakery and enjoy a cider on tap along with homemade sandwiches, salads, and soups. 

Want something harder? Venture to the distillery where you can sample vodka, gin, and aged brandy made from Bellewood apples. 

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
