THREADBARE CIDER HOUSE AND MEADERY
Join Threadbare Cider House and Meadery to explore the best in local Pennsylvania cider.

Threadbare moved production from whiskey to apple cider after falling in love with delicious local apples.
Stop by Threadbare's Cider House at 1291 Spring Garden Avenue in Pittsburgh for weekly tours of the spacious Cider House each Saturday, and numerous local events throughout the year. Tours are suitable for all ages.
