In this Jack’s Hard Cider Review we are going to share Jack’s story and all of their wonderful selections they have to offer you.
But before we do, if you haven’t had a chance to **visit our website** yet, we strongly recommend you do so if you’re interested in enjoying some of the best hard cider we have to offer to date according to Chris Hagan from facebook who said, “Love your products. El Chavo is amazing (we seem to get that quite often). Just cooked brats in Catawampus and I’m addicted”
Also, visit your local Kroger and/or Meijer grocery store near you today, ask for ‘Blake’s’, and a customer service representative will direct you to the proper area.
Now that we got the shameless plug outta’ the way, let’s get down to the nitty gritty overall review and get your engine revving!
Jack’s Hard Cider Story
It all began with a vision by Jack Hauser, the man who single-handedly led Musselman Foods into national recognition in the ’50’s, and who is also the patriarch of the Hauser Family, makers of Jack’s Hard Cider.
Jacks’ Hard Cider has been growing apples for 50+ years and counting. They produce their cider from the ground up – literally. They grow their apples, press their apples, ferment their apples, package their apples and ship their apples all from their own facility located in Biglerville, Pennsylvania, one of the most famous Apple Capitals of the world claiming the biggest brand names in Apple products.
Produced on-side. Pressed on-side. Never from concentrate.
Jack’s Hard Cider Products
Jacks’ Hard Cider is made entirely from fresh pressed apples they grow in their own backyard without any added colors, flavors or sugars. Just the fruit, and nothing else.
Jack’s Hard Cider Original
“The Original Garden of Eden”
This 12 ounce year round, dry, crisp and refreshing ‘pressed-on-site’ beverage with an alcohol content of 5.5% maxing out the national limit is akin to biting into the most perfect, forbidden apple since the Garden of Eden.
Pairs well with Blackened Fish, Citrus Salads, Barbecue, Spicy Salsa and Pumpkin Pie.

Jack’s Hard Cider Helen’s Blend
“Fruit Forward, Smooth Finish”
This 12 ounce year round fruit forward beverage comes with balanced natural acids and sugars creating a nice, smooth finish.
Pairs well with Roasted Poultry, Berry Salad, Pork and Sauerkraut, Sharp Cheese, Wheat, and home made Cherry Pie (mmmm…our favorite!)
Jack’s Hard Cider Dry Hopped
“Can I Have A Side of ‘Dry’ With That?”
With an alcohol content of 5.5%, this 12 ounce year round American classic uses an old-fashioned craft brewing technique throughout the fermentation process to lend this VERY dry cider with a pleasant citrus and herbal aromas and flavors that teases the nose before it ever touches your taste buds as you crave for a sip in anticipation.
Jack’s Hard Cider Peach
“Jack and the Giant Peach”
With an alcohol content of 5%, this 12 ounce year round drink is fairly light with a fresh peach aroma we liken to running through a field of peach trees. Incredibly refreshing fruit flavors blended throughout by pressing Adam’s County Applesand peaches through a meticulous process. Quickly becoming a favorite.
Jack’s Hard Cider Pear
“I Spy With My Little Eye…”
With an alcohol content of 5.5%, this 12 ounce year round is similar in style to Jack’s Hard Cider Peach offering, except it’s like a glass of wine Perry. Pressed with local fresh pears it has an acidic body with a smooth pear finish.
Jack’s Hard Cider Conewago Orchard (seasonal)
With an alcohol content of 5.5%, this 12 ounce seasonal beverage (available April though August only) is made from the best cider apples grown at Conewago Orchard. They’re literally pressed off the branch, slowly fermented and aged to perfection resulting in an off-dry hard cider with a touch a sweetness to round off the natural acidity and spiciness in each drink.
Jack’s Hard Cider Fireside (seasonal)
“Cinnamon, Ginger, and Cloves, OH MY!”
With an alcohol content of 5%, this 12 ounce seasonal beverage (available November through March only) is subtly spiced with cinnamon, ginger, cloves and a touch of vanilla for extra sweetness. Well-balanced with Jack’s signature sweet and tart apples

Kevin B from Clinton Township said, “We loved the decor of the cider room. I’m not a fan of most hard cider (Woodchuck, Angry Orchard) as I feel they are too sweet and artificial tasting. Blake’s cider is different. You can tell it’s quality from the first sip.
I loved the Catawampus and Frostafarian cider.
My wife got the sampler and enjoyed her choices as well. The Catawampus was so good that I bought a bottle to bring home.
Also, if you like a certain cider make sure you order the souvenir pint glass for $7. You can take the glass home nd bring it back for $4 refills!”

Did you know New York State is the second largest producer of apples in the country at 29.5 million bushels of apples yearly?
The majority of apple orchards are located in the Hudson Alley, conveniently named the “Apple Belt”, but they’re grown in other areas too such as Long Island, the Finger Lakes, Champlain Valley, and the Niagra Frontier.
