Here at Black Apple Crossing, we bring you hard cider that’s as natural as the Ozark Mountains that surround us. No preservatives, no gluten, no sulfites. Just fresh-pressed apples and cider crafters who take their jobs way too seriously.

“Was recently over in Arkansas visiting from the UK and my husband took me here after we had been swimming. Reminded me of a family pub like we have here in the UK but a bit more hipster (not that thats a bad thing). It’s nice to see Americans embracing Cider.”

— Facebook reviewer

“Really nice change of pace from the regular micro-brew. Nice variety and ranges from dry to sweet. Great atmosphere and very friendly staff. We will definitely be back!”
