Yellow Belly Wins 2017 People’s Choice Award.

For the consecutive second year, Yellow Belly has won the “People’s Choice” award for best cider at the 2017 St. Cloud Craft Beer Tour held at the River’s Edge Convention Center in St. Cloud. Huge thanks to our friends Davey and Rachel Johnston who helped pour samples and enthusiastically told our story to the crowd of 3,500 who attended the event. It was a very fun day for all.

We are thrilled to announce that Yellow Belly Barrel Aged hard cider won the gold medal in the category of “Wood Aged Cider” at the 2016 U.S. Open Cider Championship. In addition, the branding was recognized by the judges in a special Judges Choice award for one of the top ten most creative names.

The competition was held in October in Oxford, Ohio, with over 160 entries from across the United States, Canada, and United Kingdom. 15 categories of cider were judged. Complete details of all of the results can be found on the U.S. Open Cider Championship website.

Week 13.3

What a fun day we had. On Saturday August 20th, Yellow Belly was busy at two different craft beverage events: St. Cloud Cider Fest at Dick Putz Field in St. Cloud, and The Summer Beer Dabbler at CHS Field in St. Paul. And in St. Cloud, participants voted for their favorite cider and Yellow Belly won the People’s Choice Award! Thank you to all who participated.


Huge thanks to Dan Humphreys of Brand Savvy Creative, Barb Allen, Joe Duncan, Tom Fagrelius, and Nate Robertson who pitched in (literally) to help at these events.


Introducing Ginger Yellow Belly Hard Cider


We are happy to announce our new Ginger Yellow Belly Hard Cider. This is our original semi-sweet small batch hard cider, infused with fresh ginger root which was grown here on our farm. You can find Yellow Belly at these retailers in the Twin Cities and Central Minnesota. We are currently expanding our distribution into the Northern regions of Minnesota as well. Ginger Yellow Belly is now being added to the shelves along side our original Semi-Sweet. If you don’t find it on the shelves, ask your retailer to contact our distributor, Bernick’s and they will happily help to get Yellow Belly and Ginger Yellow Belly on the shelves.


Yellow Belly wins People’s Choice Award for Best Hard Cider.


We had a wonderful time at the 2016 Fourth Annual St. Cloud Craft Beer Tour in St. Cloud last night. The River’s Edge Convention Center was packed with 3,000 craft beer enthusiasts ready to sample over 250 craft beers, hard ciders, and hard sodas from around Minnesota and the world.

Even though our location was in the corner, we were easy to spot with our booth adorned with an array of posters highlighting Minnesota humor. To our surprise, many fans wanted to take our posters as a souvenir, so towards the end of the day, we handed them out to those who appreciated them.

The attendees then voted for their favorite beer, favorite brewery, and favorite hard cider/hard soda beverage. We were so excited to learn that our Yellow Belly Small Batch Hard Cider was the winner of the favorite hard cider/hard soda category! And congrats goes to Beaver Island Brewing Company of St. Cloud who won the People’s Choice for Best Beer, and Best Brewery!

Thanks to our niece Carrie Noble and fellow Mora resident Nate Robertson who helped out with sampling, and of course, partaking in tasting the many delicious beverages through the event.

Cider Season is Here.


This has been a very good year for apples. Our young apple trees are starting to produce so it has been fun to see and taste all of the different varieties.

We have pressed all of our harvest this year and it is now being made into the new stock of Yellow Belly hard cider.
