Who we are:
The Cider Crate is Bethany and Barry, a young couple who really have a taste for cider. Currently located in Ottawa, Ontario, Bethany is originally from Kitchener-Waterloo -with also having lived in Toronto in the last couple of years – and Barry hails from Guelph. We visit Toronto and Southwest Ontario frequently, so we are always looking for new ciders to try and review in these areas and our home, the capital of Canada. For our day jobs, Bethany works in the political world and Barry works in radio.
Why did we create this website:
As we love cider, we want to do everything we can to promote the drink to new and occasional fans; as well as to connect with dedicated fans like us. We are huge fans of Ontario Craft Cider, we noticed there are not currently many websites like this that promote these unique drinks in the province (especially a website that only focuses on cider), so we wanted to fill the void with reviews, news, cocktails and more
Sending cider to us:
We love to do reviews, but will never ask for a free product. We understand the challenges many cidery’s have in making a sustainable business and we are happy to support by purchasing your product. However, If a cidery is interested in sending something, we are thrilled to include your content on our site and you can contact us to arrange access to your cider or apple product.
Who is Sterling?
Sterling is our pup, and we call him the Cider Corgi. He never (EVER) consumes alcohol but helps promote the cider awareness campaign. You can follow his adventures on Instagram, and why wouldn’t you?
