For a unique cider-tasting experience, head to the whimsical Hammered Dwarf Cider in Snohomish. Upon entering the Hammered Dwarf, visitors will notice that they will experience something different. Hammered Dwarf is located down a long driveway and is nestled behind a concrete factory. There you will find outdoor picnic tables and indoor seating options. The tasting menu is inspired by fantasy characters such as the Wizard’s Harvest, Witchy Litchi, or the Supernova Ale.
Another notable difference is the uniquely complex flavors of the cider. Hammered Dwarf uses apple varietals which are traditional to cider making, instead of more commonly used culinary apples. Hammered Dwarf prides itself on its barrel-aging program utilizing barrels from Washington. A visit is not complete without trying one of these barrel-aged ciders on tap. Kids and pups are welcome to join this family-friendly venue. Treat the kids to an ice-cold, handcrafted root beer on tap. The whole family will enjoy this unique tasting experience.
Make a toast to fall flavors at one of the finest cideries in beautiful Snohomish County. Each cidery has its own unique ambiance and flavor profiles, so make a weekend of it and try them all. There is no better way to celebrate the season than by kicking back and relaxing with a handcrafted cider from Snohomish County’s farmlands.
