These cider packaging designs are the apple of our eye

Craft beer may get all the credit, but as the leaves start to change and apple picking season kicks off we can’t help but turn our attention to the growing popularity—and wildly creative world—of cider packaging. Aided by the gluten-free craze and an ever expanding craft market, this traditional beverage is finally getting a makeover (and we’re loving the results!).

Whether you take your cider hard or fresh, there’s a whole booming industry surrounding its packaging design. Here, we’ve hand-picked some of our favorites. These designs are wildly inspiring—and by our own 99designs community to boot! Enjoy!
