Whole Foods | Portland, Oregon

Jason Spears and his brother, Patrick, founded Locust Cider in March of 2015 inspired by real, tough people, a.k.a children with hydrocephalus. With them in mind, their mission is to make outstanding hard cider…and they have been doing just that. Whole Foods recently featured the new “Hootenanny” series in stores across Washington and Oregon. They will soon be adding stores across Texas to the list.

Locust Cider is a company with a mission. Locust Cider educates about hydrocephalus on each bottle and on their website. In addition, a portion of the proceeds of each sale as well as $25 from each of their club memberships (The Club) goes directly to the Hydrocephalus Association. Jason’s daughter, Lucy, is their inspiration.

In early 2015, Jason’s daughter (born in February 2015) was diagnosed with hydrocephalus, along with craniosynostosis. By the age of one, Lucy had already undergone 4 brain surgeries and 7 hospital stays.

“Children with hydrocephalus are the toughest people we have found so far, and we have made it our mission to use this cider company as a vehicle to improve their lives.” – The Spears

The Spears brothers want a better future for Lucy and for all the children with hydrocephalus.

    Would love to see this sold in Whole Foods in the “other Portland” (Maine). We have beer craft breweries galore here but not many ciders so would love to have friends buy your product locally while helping hydrocephalus!

    Anxiously awaiting Locust Cider to be distributed inTexas.
    I have Intracranial Hypertension & continue to fight with the trauma of Chiari Malformation.
    There aren’t enough words to “Thank you” for bringing awareness to Hydroceohylus.
    Please keep us posted here in The Lone Star State of Texas so I can spread the word.
    Blessings to you 🙏
    Sincerely,

    Is your cider or will it be in Canada, Alberta specifically ? I’m 44 years old and I’m Hydrocephalic since birth & I find it awesome that companies like yours exist & would like to support this cause. Why to go.
