A gluten-free cider taphouse and eatery to open in midtown
Sacramento may be experiencing a beer boom but another fermented beverage is about to get its moment in the spotlight when Cider House opens at the corner of 24th and K streets in midtown this fall.
The taproom-slash-eatery, which will focus on gluten-free drinks and food, will feature up to 20 rotating ciders on tap from cideries like Sacramento’s Two Rivers Cider, Nevada’s Common Cider and Oregon’s 2 Towns Ciderhouse, as well as wheat-free ales. The food menu will include non-gluten versions of paninis, vegan quinoa burgers and grilled cheeses with muenster and gruyere. “Everyone is going gluten-free, so I want to be the first cider [taphouse to do that] in Sacramento,” says proprietor Julio Peix, who also co-owns Dad’s Kitchen in Land Park. He adds that the 1,000-square-foot establishment, which is slated to open in late September across from Der Biergarten and The Golden Bear, will have a rustic aesthetic, with a long wooden bar top and vintage cider advertisements that’ll line pale green walls.
“Cider people are going to come out and it’s going to be a community,” says Peix. “It’s a good spot and with all the other places [nearby], I think it’ll be a destination where people can barhop and bounce around.”
