Great cider and the staff is excellent. We make our way here a lot of Sunday afternoons. There is typically live music and plenty of room for the kids to run around and play.

Great place to spend an evening. Nice ciders and atmosphere with indoor live music. Also has good guest beers for non cider drinkers. Some of the ciders can be a little pricey but there is a large choice and they are so easy to drink...More

There is not a restaurant, but a permanent food truck is outside and the the prices are great. Even the shirts, hats, and other merchandise were reasonably priced. The ciders are nicely priced as well, good to see a location/brewery not gouge you.
