We arrived at Bantam and was welcomed with a big smile, Josh introduced himself and in great detail told us about the ciders available, they serve by the glass or by flight (5 samplers) so we opted for both. The place has a very charming...More

Visited here with some friends over weekend that wanted to introduce me to American cider. Took a flight meaning could try up to 5 different ciders for $12 which is great value. They offer a good mix and could taste the difference between them and...More

I enjoy ciders and Bantam is one of my favorites. It has complex favors and not overly sweet. The tasting room is bright and friendly. The staff were very helpful too. However they have no seating. You stand at a table and enjoy your cider....More

Being that Bantam Cidery was very near my Air B&B stay, plus the fact I got a great deal through Groupon, I came here on my last day in the Boston area. The place is not on the main shopping streets in Somerville, but it's...More

Bantam's motto of "Small & Mighty" encompasses the company on many levels. A glass can be small but have mighty flavor. When you visit Bantam's tap room in Somerville, do yourself a favor and order a flight! This way, you can sample 5 of their...More
