It it not often that the opening of a cider house is attributed to skydiving, but, in the case of Arsenal Cider House, it is. Co-founder Bill Larkin had never been the biggest fan of hard ciders, yet he was a fan of skydiving. Fast forward through many years of the adrenaline-filled pastime to when his skydiving mentor offered Bill a round of homemade hard cider. After a few sips the rest was history.
With support and enthusiasm from their local community, Bill and co-founder/wife Michelle Larkin opened the doors to their first location in 2008 in Lawrenceville, just steps away from its namesake, Allegheny Arsenal. Finally, in January of 2020, Arsenal Cider House came to Ohio City, bringing with it the same Civil War theme and pioneering flavors. Favorite craft ciders include Hop Cider IPC, Grierson’s Ginger Hard Apple Cider, and Picket Bone Dry Hard Cider. With their products made from ingredients sourced from local farms, it is hard cider like you’ve never had before!
