Award-winning cider maker Andy Sietsema announced Monday that his ciders will be available on draft at Five Star Bar (http://fivestarbar.com)
Sietsema has been expanding his cider sales throughout Michigan for the past two years and said that Chicago was the natural next step. The city’s culture and already thriving food and drink scene make it an ideal market to enter.
“Metropolitan Chicago and its suburbs are home to over 8 million people, that’s a lot of restaurants and tap handles that could be pouring our cider,” said Sietsema.
Michigan-based VanderMill and Virtue Ciders are already in circulation in the Chicago market and doing well. Sietsema is confident that his ciders will be well received and bring interest back to the orchard and the Grand Rapids area.
