About Flying Brick Cider Co.

unashamed and unrestrained

EST 2010

Made from 100% crispy, crunchy apples and fresh, succulent pears.
Naturally fermented with minimal interference. Dangerously delicious.

Crafted in the heart of the stunning Bellarine Peninsula, the core Flying Brick range comprises three ciders – Original, Draught and Pear.  The Flying Brick Cider House is also always busy crafting up boutique, specialty batches from fresh, seasonal fruit - look out for these exclusive pours when you visit us.

All Flying Brick ciders are:

  • naturally crafted using traditional methods.
  • made from 100% fresh fruit
  • free from added sugars, colours or concentrates

Lots of ciders on the market are made from fruit concentrate - often imported. Some mainstream ciders are nothing more than synthetic carbonated water.  The Flying Brick range is literally the result of gathering, pressing and fermenting fresh, crispy Victorian apples and succulent Packham Pears.

The name?

The Flying Brick name and logo was derived from the yellow tailed black cockatoo, an awesome bird down here on the Bellarine Peninsula – whose local nick name is 'Flying Brick' – somehow, they defy the odds and can actually fly! There is something very special about these birds - they have real spunk and are loved by most for their happy, playful and seemingly 'naughty' appearance and disposition.

The Legend...

Local legend has it that if a flock of black cockatoos flies overhead, you are blessed with good luck.
