Fierce County was started by John & Tolena Thorburn, who are self-described craft beer lovers turned cider enthusiasts. For the past 15 years, they have traveled the world seeking out the very best in craft beer and cider. Learning and enjoying the varying styles and flavors unique to each brewer and set of ingredients, they have applied that experience to years of home brewing and cider making.
In 2017, Fierce County Cider launched its first commercial operating space. The 97-square foot ciderhouse in Puyallup, WA is strategically organized to manage all cider operations. The ciderhouse is built for efficiency, utilizing the latest brewing technology and equipment to allow lead cider maker Tolena to create fiercely amazing ciders in each batch.
Being a small production cidery, our ciders can be challenging to find on tap as the kegs get emptied quickly! For the most current location of our ciders, check our social media pages or search for us on Untappd. And if you have a suggestion for where you’d like to see us on tap, let us know!
Bottles of Fierce County Cider can often be found in Tacoma at Peaks & Pints, and in Auburn at CRFT Beers. Bottles can also be found at Total Wine locations in Puyallup, Olympia, Federal Way, Tukwila, Seattle-Interbay and Seattle-Northgate. Cheers!
