Urban Cider


Location: Urban Forage Winery and Cider House, 3016 E. Lake St.

Jeff Zeitler’s tap room has finally opened in Longfellow. Jeff has been a homebrewer of wine and cider for decades. He sources all his fruit locally, and the tap room has everything from a fruit-forward pear cider to a dry apple to a gin-infused cider. There are also non-alcoholic versions. The tap room’s grand opening is this weekend and includes tours of the brewing room.
