Hardscrabble Cider is a micro farm-cidery founded by three brothers with firm horticultural backgrounds – Alex, Kevin and Ben Covino of Brewster, NY. Farmers, scientists and businessmen all around, the brothers found inspiration in the words of local hero, Theodore Roosevelt, “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are”; and (Mother Nature willing) apples they have a plenty.

We are open daily, serving pints, flights, and bottles of our cider, as well as NY craft beer. We serve wood-fired pizza on Friday and Saturday nights, 6-8pm. Outside food and drinks are not permitted at any time. Please feel free to contact us for additional information.

Thank you for going out of your way to ensure the safety of visitors. The band was awesome and such a nice way to relax in the midst of the covid craziness. Thank you. I urge you to continue vigilance with mask-wearing.

We loved the ciders and craft beers on-tap. The food truck food was really good. We ordered a gluten free pizza from the cidery and it was not very good. Overall, we had a great time and would totally come back!

We had a great time and the selection of beverages was outstanding. I was a tad upset by the amount of people I saw away from their tables without masks. While I know it is difficult to enforce, that was a little troublesome to see. Other than that, I will definitely return!!

It was a lovely evening for about 1 hour, but then it poured and everyone had to go under the overhead. No one was wearing a mask and it was in a tight space. Consider umbrellas or a tent so that the event can continue and people feel safer! Other than that, amazing cider!

It was very quiet as it had rained before we got there. The pizza was excellent as usual. Looking forward to when they have live bands again.
