If you’re looking for a tasty poolside drink, look no further than your local Costco. You already know and love the warehouse club for their great deals on everything from rotisserie chickens to 7-pound tubs of Nutella. But now, they’re bringing something crisp and refreshing to your shopping cart.
Look Out for Austin Eastciders Hard Cider!
You expect to see a 30-roll pack of toilet paper at Costco, but this craft cider is a pleasant surprise. Austin Eastciders makes every can of cider at its Texas-based cidery. The company uses apples from Europe and ingredients like Texas honey, real hop flowers and actual pineapple juice to create its sparkling beverages. (You know how we love made in the USA products.)
Here’s the lineup of original flavors:
- Original Dry
- Rosé Dry
- Ruby Red Grapefruit
- Blood Orange
- Texas Honey
We’re here for the Texas Honey! But that’s not all. If classic cider fans need a more exciting reason to crack open a can, Austin Eastciders also has several seasonal releases:
- Texas Brut Super Dry
Bonus: The whole line of cider is gluten-free! Here’s why people are going crazy for hard cider.
What Flavors Are at Costco?
The 12-ounce cans are available in 12-packs, six-packs or variety packs, though the seasonal releases may be harder to track down. A snap from Costco enthusiast @Costco_doesitagain on Instagram showed a variety 12-pack of Watermelon, Blood Orange, Rosé and Original Dry ciders.
Seems like the perfect thing to bring to a BBQ—along with a summer potluck side dish, of course.

Where Can I Find Them?
It seems like the availability of this hard cider at Costco is limited, but we hope to see more Eastciders products as the weather heats up. If you’re can’t find the hard cider at your Costco yet, head to Trader Joe’s for a ready-made Bellini!
