Downeast Cider house was founded by Ross Brockman and Tyler Mosher during their senior year of college. After a considerable amount of time spent on the family orchard, an affinity for farm-fresh apple products was born. Meanwhile, at school, the guys could always be found studying. Whether it was deep into a weekend night, Weds/Thur specials at the local library, or perhaps a casual "Sunday fun-day study-day," the fellas were relentlessly toiling away, focused primarily on the classic works of professor Busch and his famous theories on the smooth-cold continuum, copper-top revision. Though neither was a math major, through some additional "studying" they put two and two together and the result was hard cider.
