As classic as our favorite sport, with an innovative spin on the word craft, Hardball cider, wine, orchard tours, and taproom are dedicated to tradition and quality. All of this with a scenic view right at the core of the Delaware Water Gap in Mount Bethel, PA.






Locally-made flatbreads to enjoy or share, starting at only $8. Try the classic Margherita, the white broccoli with fresh garlic, or the Tuscan meatlovers with pepperoni, sausage, and bacon. 

SATURDAY- Warm Cider cocktails 

Tis the season for hot cider cocktails made with our own fresh mulled cider, a shot of Apple Brandy and topped with whipped cream and either pumpkin or caramel sauce. Get it in a take home mug for $14, then get $7 refills! Saturday and Sunday's soup this week is Cheddar Potato, with ham and cheese pretzels, made daily and served hot. 


To keep you warm, we are offering bottomless soup bowls for $5 on Sundays. Each Sunday will be two options of soup, made fresh from our local friends at Rustica Artisan Foods. This weekend it's firehouse chili and broccoli cheddar.

This Thanksgiving Eve, Wednesday 11/27, Hardball Cider is opening the top half of our 1838-built barn to bring you a BONFIRE BASH from 3pm to 11pm. Two live bands, a bacon-menu from Rustica Artisan Foods, and a bonfire the likes of which you haven't seen. Check our facebook page for more info.

Q: Do you serve food at your tasting room?

A:  On Fridays we have a small rotating menu of flat breads and most times will have a local food truck on Saturdays and Sundays. You are always welcome to bring your own food as well. Check facebook and Instagram for live updates on what food is available.

Q: Is there cider and wine available to take home?

A: There sure is. The tasting room will have 4 packs of year-round favorites to take out, along with 32oz growler jugs of anything on tap to fill up and take home. You can also bring your own growlers to fill. These, along with bottles of wine are for take out only and cannot be consumed on the premises.

Q: Can we bring our dog?

A: We do love dogs at Hardball, but well behaved dogs are only permitted in the outside area. Out of respect to our neighbors and other patrons, PLEASE clean after your pup, keep them on a leash at all times, and watch for posted signs. Thank you!

Q: Are we allowed to bring games of our own?

A: Absolutely! We welcome any kind of game you'd like to bring along, although the taproom is stocked with plenty. Those, along with cornhole, horseshoes, and kanjam. We only ask that you don't blast your own music here.

Q: Can we take a tour while we're there or plan a private event?

A: Right now we only have walk-in sessions with the owner on Sundays while he works in the cidery from 1-3pm. Limit is 10 people per tour.  Otherwise, information regarding cidery tours during events will be posted on facebook and Instagram. Private event opportunities will start Spring 2020.


Q: Where should we park?

A: You may park on the left and right sides of the lane. Please stay behind orange cones and be mindful as you park as to not block the road with any part of your vehicle. Thank you!
