Original 13 Ciderworks Restaurant and Tasting Room
John Kowchak founded Original 13 Ciderworks in 2013 to bring craft hard cider, perry, and mead to Philadelphia. Inspired by his grandfather’s tradition of making cider for friends and family, John created the Sir Charles line of hard cider to share his family tradition with cider lovers in Philly, and beyond.
Today, Original 13 Ciderworks has opened a cidery and tasting room in the heart of Olde Kensington. In addition to the original Sir Charles ciders, the tasting room will showcase Original 13 heirloom ciders, perfectly paired with selections from our kitchen. We hope to see you at the Ciderworks soon!
We’re proud to be a part of the restoration of the American Street neighborhood. American Street was once a center for industry in Philadelphia. Today, it is being revived as a hub for business, and is home to craft coffee roasters, local distilleries and breweries, art studios, and more. 
Our neighbors include local establishments like St Benjamin’s Brewing Company, Philly Homebrew, Reanimator Coffee, New Liberty Distillery, Crane Arts, Solar States, and Bahdeebahdu. We hope to welcome more newcomers to the neighborhood in the coming years!
