Rapid Creek Cidery’s menu is focused on simple food that reflects our interest in produce grown with care, animals treated with respect, and a well-curated pantry. We hope our cooking shows the restraint great ingredients deserve and the effort we put into time-tested technique.

Rapid Creek Cidery’s menu items will come and go with the seasons (and our whim) but we’ll update the full menu here as it develops.
