Argus Cidery

Media Relations/Owner

Mary Mickel founded Argus Cidery in 2010 to satisfy a white space she'd discovered in Austin's food & beverage scene. Upon discovering a need in the beverage industry for dry and bubbly ciders, Mary set out to fill that gap. The company began working with Texas apples but quickly blossomed into a whole host of fruit that they now use in their ciders.
