Mixing innovation and respect for classic cider and mead making traditions, Green Bench Mead & Cider’s goal is to bring an interesting new take on mankind’s oldest alcoholic beverages.

Green Bench has a number of core ciders and meads that are available year-round, in addition to special bottle releases available in the tasting room.

Ciders

Rooftop Cider
We think honey and apples are a great match. Ferment them both together and this is what you get. Citrus-y, floral and crisp.

I Am Brut!
Dry cider that was fermented in our foeder with a blend of our house farmhouse yeast and brettanomyces brux.

Meads

The Northerner
A “cyser” is a mead made with apples. We dropped a couple pounds of Michigan Montmorency cherries in while we were at it. This mead is light, tart, and refreshingly bubbly.

I’ve always been a big fan of Green Bench and their ciders (and meads,) even before opening the new Webb’s City Cellars. But now that there is a dedicated space, it has quickly become my favorite place to visit while in St. Pete! Located between the brewery and the excellent Red Mesa Mercado, you would be hard pressed to find a better place to spend an afternoon.

And to top it all off, not only can you taste their excellent meads and ciders, they are the largest seller of Schramm’s meads outside of their location in Fernadale, Michigan! I could go on and on. But don’t take my word; visit yourself and thank me later!

Last but not least, they offer an incredible selection of bottle to take home (and some excellent natural wines)!
