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

We had a tasting and the portions were generous. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I ended up getting a growler of their Wunderkind.
