About Stem Ciders

At Stem Ciders, we are committed to creating ciders of the highest quality that honor the purity and complexity that is inherent to the apple. We can’t wait to introduce you to your perfect cider match. We are dedicated to reviving the cider tradition, which goes far beyond what you enjoy in your glass. We hold our growers in the highest regard, and by fostering relationships with them we reward their hard work and promote the regrowth of heirloom apple cultivation. We love our home-base in Denver, and embrace the Colorado lifestyle that makes us lug a bottle to share up a mountain to enjoy a drink with a view. Most importantly, we love nothing more than seeing that smile on your face when you have your first sip of one of our crisp, refreshing ciders.

Eric Foster, Co-Founder

Hailing from Michigan, Eric’s love of cider began while working at the local cider mill in his hometown. There he learned about apple selection, pressing operations and the basic principles of cidermaking. Eric moved to Colorado in 2000 and has been working in marketing and business development, volunteering as a ski patroller and fly fishing every chance he gets. In addition to cidermaking, Eric has been an avid homebrewer for the last ten years. He is passionate about Stem Ciders as it combines his love of cider, interests in fermentation and his professional accomplishments.

Phil Kao, Co-Founder

Having grown up a few miles down the road from the oldest cider mill in Michigan, Phil moved to Denver in 2005 and received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from University of Colorado in 2011. When he isn’t skiing or road biking, he has worked in biological and mechanical testing laboratories where he is known for his attention to detail and his skills in devising and refining experimental methods. An avid home cook, he enjoys the fruits of a well-crafted dish. His engineering background brings process control and experimental design aspects to cidermaking and he enjoys applying his creative palate and his analyticity at Stem Ciders.
