Andrew spent a decade at Cartoon Network, but has a passion for the production process -- from charcuterie to cider. In 2011, Andrew started apprenticing at Heywood’s, an Atlanta artisanal butcher, learning the craft. He expanded a love for making things to cider and continues to refine the Treehorn Cider to build the best cider possible. U.S. Association of Cider Makers member.
Treehorn Cider is a craft hard cider brand currently available on draft and in cans throughout Metro Atlanta, as well as Savannah, Athens, Roswell, Alpharetta, Kennesaw, Rome, Macon, Valdosta, Cartersville and more. Our flagship Dry Cider, Ginger Reserve (ginger-infused cider) and Hoppy Little Trees (hop-infused cider) are 5.9% ABV and naturally gluten free. Made in Marietta, Treehorn Cider is local, sustainable and always delicious.
Treehorn Cider started with a conversation among friends in Fall 2013. We all love craft beer, good wine and great food – especially from local producers. Hard cider began popping up in the craft beer cases around town. Local hard cider production in North Carolina and across the country was starting to take off. So we asked ourselves – why not Atlanta? Our home city has a vibrant farm-to-table restaurant scene, and more than 60 farmers markets. North Georgia has robust apple production. Craft cocktails, small-scale craft breweries and local restaurants dominate growth in the city. We would jump on the chance to taste a locally made hard cider, so why didn’t we make it ourselves?
So it began. We carefully considered where in Atlanta to base the first craft cider brand in the market, and ended up just where some of our partners grew up – Marietta. We leveraged years of home-based cider making, and started figuring out how to make the best cider – clean, refreshing and pleasantly sweet, while avoiding the cloying taste and heavy back-sweetening found in most national brands.
Treehorn Cider is available in restaurants, bars and growler shops throughout Georgia. We love talking and thinking about cider, and above all making cider that you can drink with any meal, any time. It’s become our passion, and we couldn’t be more excited about the opportunity to share it with you!

Refreshing cider starts with really good juice. Not artificially flavored, generic juice, but juice from just-picked apples, bursting with flavor.
Treehorn uses fresh-pressed juice from regional orchards, we’re committed to apples grown as close to Atlanta as possible – no more than 150 miles away. We believe supporting local agriculture is good for sustainability, the economy of our state, the environment, and most of all our taste buds. Fresh tastes good for a reason.
So that magic that happens to turn juice into cider? It’s a little bit like making wine. You need yeast, really big tanks and time to make the cider perfect.
