Cider Corps is ready to swing for the fences during its first spring training season in downtown Mesa. The veteran-owned cidery will be opening its taproom doors seven days a week starting tomorrow, Feb. 23. In addition to expanded hours, the cidery also will have a special for those going to games, a food truck every Friday, and new Cider Slushies including a Cider-mosa flavor.

“We continue to be amazed and thankful for the support we’ve gotten from the community just being open on Saturdays,” said co-owner Josh Duren. “We’re really excited to become a part of the spring training tradition in Mesa and share what’s happening in downtown with winter visitors.”

Cider Corps will be open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Saturday, Feb. 23–March 31. Those going to spring training games at Mesa’s Hohokam Stadium or Sloan Park can get $1 off a pint by showing their game-day ticket.

On tap will be 10 to 15 unique ciders including a prickly pear, hopped apricot and some seasonal ciders created with ballpark food in mind. The first will be a Chocolate Churro Cider. It will also have a little fun with a Cider-mosa Slushie that is sparkling straight apple cider and orange juice-flavored Slushie. Pints are $6, and a cider flight of six 5-ounce pours is $12.

Cider Corps does not serve food but encourages people to order from neighboring restaurants and bring it to the taproom. It will also have the rotating food truck every Friday and Saturday. Updates about new ciders, food trucks and other activities at the taproom will be announced on its Instagram feed: @cidercorps.

Cider Corps is a veteran owned and operated company built by brothers and co-founders Jason and Josh Duren. What started as a hobby for the two is now Arizona’s first fully dedicated cidery and taproom. Cider Corps is located at 31 S. Robson in downtown Mesa in an 1800s-era building that once housed the Mesa mounted police.
