Fall Tasting Policy Update

Status

Fall checklist: apples, check, sweet cider, check, hard cider, check, apple brandy, check, lots of customers, check, space in tasting room…  hmmm.

Okay folks, we’re going to try something new this year.  From 1PM to 4PM on Saturday and Sunday during September and October, we’re going to 5 For Free tasting only.  No full flights.  We’re happy to do full paid flights earlier in the day, at the end of the day, and during the week. (We’re open every day but Tuesday.)  But we’re got to try something new for our weekend after-lunch crunch.  So we’re going to test out this change, and see if it helps shorten the waiting.

Glad you all are coming to see us and making the line in the first place!

Tasting Room Hours Update

Status

Our Tasting Room hours are expanding to include Fridays. We are also officially adding an hour to the beginning and ending of the day. So that’s Fridays 12-5, Saturdays 10-5 and Sundays 12-5. From now until Daylight Savings Time ends.

And yes, that includes this coming 4th of July! We hope to even have some Bunting Berry Cider by the afternoon.

See you soon,
Charles
