In 2019, we planted 100 trees.

Creativity, quality, and connection, are at the core of Prairie Bears Cider Co. It plays a part in how we live, how we work, and the product we make.

Kelli Burdek & Brett Mack decided to do a thing.

Starting a cider company may not seem like a linear career path for Kelli, a doctor and Brett, a heavy duty mechanic. But Prairie Bears Cider Co. is no side gig. Making cider out of rescued fruit started as a creative outlet for us during Kellis residency in 2017 but it quickly became something we turned into a way of life. Now were tending to our growing prairie orchard near Alberta Beach and crafting ciders that reflect both our commitment to quality and our love for the community we live in.

“We wanted to do something interesting with our lives.” - Kelli

We love where we grow!

Located in Lac Ste Anne County, we combine the best of both worlds in rural living and urban access. Less than an hour from Edmonton and just off the Yellowhead Highway. We look forward to inviting visitors to our orchard and taproom in the near future. For now, you can find us at Bountiful Farmers' Market in Edmonton.

Why we’re growing our own prairie hardy orchard…

We’ve chosen our varieties based on the blends that give the cider the best possible flavour. A key factor is crab apples. Their acidity makes for an excellent blended cider. They are also incredibly labour intensive. But we think it’s worth it.

Our journey has just begun and we still have a lot to do! Follow us for product and orchard updates on Instagram and Facebook.

  • Did you know that all our ciders are typically filtered twice? The first time we filter is right after fermentation and then we filter again between aging and carbonation. It usually takes 2-3 hours each time depending on the level of suspended sediment in the cider. When we're working with straight-up apple juice, the process time is fairly consistent but when we're adding other juices (like blueberry or raspberry) the amount of fine sediment is considerably more and the filtering process takes much longer. We've even had batches that took 10 hours to filter!

Did you know that all our ciders are typically filtered twice? The first time we filter is right after fermentation and then we filter again between aging and carbonation. It usually takes 2-3 hours each time depending on the level of suspended sediment in the cider. When we're working with straight-up apple juice, the process time is fairly consistent but when we're adding other juices (like blueberry or raspberry) the amount of fine sediment is considerably more and the filtering process takes much longer. We've even had batches that took 10 hours to filter!
