Western Cider is Missoula, Montana's first cidery - set to open January 2017.Our venture into cider started in 2010 when Michael Billingsley was infected by an obsession with apples. He planted 2,500 cider apple trees in the Bitterroot Valley – just south of Missoula. He continued to plant hundreds of trees every year since - on his orchard and orchards throughout the valley. Now, he is finally in the process of using those apples, as well as apples from throughout Western Montana and neighboring Washington, to produce a unique line of ciders. As a company, Western Cider aspires to create an institution of great cider, good times and a life worth living in this far-flung region of the American West.
