We arrived to the Cidery and Distillery later in the day on a Saturday and we were the only ones there. I assume it is because we were there just before closing. The Ciders were just ok. I have had worst. I have had better....More

Offering a variety of interesting tastings of ciders and blends, once can easily get caught up in the camaraderie and energy of the patrons. Ciders offer a twist on standard fare with touches of rose wines, brandies, and even some exotic liquor.
