It’s going to be a lot more convenient for folks around metro Atlanta to get their hands on fermented apple juice.
Atlanta’s first craft cider company, UrbanTree Cidery, has struck a deal with Publix that will make six packs of 12-ounce bottles of its hard cider available at 15 Publix stores around metro Atlanta, according to a press release from the cidery.
No longer will folks from Cobb and north Fulton, or other areas of metro Atlanta have to fight traffic for a taste of hard cider.
Just head to one of these Publix stores:
1001 Ponce De Leon Ave.
2900 Peachtree Road NW
3605 Sandy Plains Road
1100 Johnson Ferry Road
2955 Atlanta Road
4480 South Cobb Drive
4401 Shallowford Road
885 Woodstock Road
270 Rucker Road
4750 Old Alabama Road
8725 Roswell Road
7524 Roswell Road
1635 Old 41 Highway
2774 Cobb Pkwy West
4290 Bells Ferry Road
UrbanTree opened in 2016 at 1465 Howell Mill Road NW in Atlanta. It is owned by Tim and Maria Resuta, and Maria’s sister, Jackie Annise.
Two cider varieties from UrbanTree will be available at Publix, its Classic and Original flavors. The Original is described as “dry, yet crisp with subtle notes of apple sweetness.” UrbanTree says its Classic flavor is “refreshing and pleasant with bright apple notes.”
Hard ciders at UrbanTree are made from apples from the Cathey Family Orchard in Mountain City, Georgia.
