Morningside for Life
Morningside is a land full of locals that live on the bright cider life and the proud home of Aotearoa’s first urban apple orchard. The Morningcider gang is also behind Auckland’s first cider bar, the Morningcidery, which has now grown into lane bar Side Hustle. We're working hard to get cider to your fave drinking spot in Aotearoa. Read on and discover how you too can drink local apples!
Side Hustle Bar / Morningside
"Refreshing both in its point of difference and in the drinks on offer, this is much more than a cidery. Knowledgeable staff, flavour combos I hadn't tried before and very cute surroundings make this a must do. Flight of ciders, glass of wine or a cocktail, you'll find something for you here!"
"Epic cider, great people, awesome vibe - my new favourite hangout!"
Never been a big fan of cider
"...but Morningcider might be on the way to converting me. I really enjoyed the sample selected for me. A variety of fresh flavours perfect for a hot summers' evening. Will be back!"
Reminds me of Melbourne
"Great vibes, staff, and cider! The Morningcider Cider is a personal favourite of mine. Great if you want to have a catch up with an old friend (or take someone on a date)! The cider tasting paddles reminded me of going to the bars in the Melbourne laneways - exciting that Auckland can compete."
Opening up the world of cider
"There are 10 ciders on tap with which brew baron Tim Shallard aims to push the envelope. He creates experimental short-run brews like pineapple and jalapeno, and the more savoury carrot and ginger cider."
