Limited Release!

Paying tribute to our nation’s first commander, Son of a Bear Ciders collaborates with Black Horse Forge to bring you this one-of-a-kind semi-sweet cider aged with oak from a tree that General George Washington planted at Mount Vernon. Only 100 bottles will be released.

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Black Horse Forge, a veteran non-profit that instructs veterans, active-duty military, first responders, and their supporters in “battling the demons with fire and steel.”

Our Ciders


Bear Force One is our flagship cider. The name hails from the exquisitely modified Boeing 747 and the #1 priority aircraft in the United States: The Presidential Air Force One.

Treat yourself with distinction.

Aged in bourbon barrels, Bourbon Bearcules embodies the gritty get-it-done attitude of special mission aircraft in the C-130 Hercules fleet. 

Toast to preserving freedom.

Amber cider aged in oak. Today’s RC-135 programs originated from highly sophisticated, top priority, experimental aircraft. The Rivet Amber aircraft and crew of 19 disappeared in the Bering Sea on June 5, 1969.

Tip one in their honor.

Strawberry-Rhubarb infused cider hits your taste buds like the impact of the P-51 Mustang to the WWII aerial campaign. Mustangs, Spitfires, and other Pursuit aircraft helped the Allies achieve total air supremacy and inflict heavy losses via “Rhubarb” missions on targets of opportunity.

Celebrate your worthy pursuits.

Cranberry, tangerine, cinnamon. The Doolittle Raiders, in 16 B-25s launched from the USS Hornet, demonstrated power projection in the WWII Pacific Theater. The innovative and courageous Raiders accomplished what most said was impossible. They reinvigorated our nation’s confidence and resolve.

Boldly challenge the impossible.
