Join us out in the orchard at sunset 1/6/24 to give thanks for the apple harvest.
We’ll be open 11-4
We’ll be back out giving thanks to the trees on 1/7/2023 at sunset. You are welcome to join us in an ancient rite of gratitude to farmers and crops.
This is outside – and so depends on the weather. We won’t do frost bite, so call to check if it seems iffy.
We’re running low on the following products: Orchard Oriole Perry, Kinglet Proper Cider, Sparrow Spiced Cider, Spiced Poissimo Pear Dessert Wine, Brightognac WI Brandy, and Kettle Geneva Gin.
Call or message to have us set some aside for you. The Ciders and Wine can be shipped.
We will be open on the 4th. Noon-5PM.
Hwy 142 is getting resurfaced from US45 to Cty J. Today, there’s heavy equipment and flaggers between US45 and Hwy 75. Hwy 142 is passible between Hwy 75 and Cty J (the roads that bracket the Bong State Park) – but there are partial barricades on both ends of 142 AND on Cty B (288th Ave, where we are). It’s easier to go to County BB on either 75 or J, take BB to B, then south to the Cidery. That works from Hwy 11, to our north, or Hwy 50, to our south.
We have the Brown Dog Whiskey, 80 proof, 375mL bottles back in stock!
Which is good, because right now, on the low alcohol end, we only have Blackbird Berried Cider. (Which does happen to be the best selling of our draft-style ciders). Every thing else is high ABV. One sweet (Poirissimo! Pear Dessert Winer), and then the whiskey, brandies, and gin.
This is our pre-penultimate weekend. As a reminder, after 12/19, we will be hours by appointment (conditions allowing) until May 2022.
The end of October brings the end of our weekday hours. We will remain open Saturdays (11-4) and Sundays (12-4) until Dec 19th. Give or take snow storms.
We are running low on stock, but as of this writing, have 3 draft style ciders, our Pear Wine, both dessert wines, Brown Dog Whiskey, Apple Brandy, Peach Brandy, Kettle Geneva Gin, and one other…
Speaking of which, we are pleased to announce the release of a new batch of our VS Brightognac Three Year Old Estate Grape Brandy. It’s rich of hue and intensely aromatic.
We’re getting low on Summers End Apple Wine and Americana Still Cider. The last of this year’s Orchard Oriole Perry is on the shelf.
I don’t know what happened with the Summers End. This batch must be selling a lot better than the last for my guestimate to be so far off.
Mask Up and Come In. Or call to reserve. Or order online.
We are at Level ORANGE (Again!)
In response to the current situation, we are returning to requiring masks for all guests who don’t have a glass in hand. We are also asking that unvaccinated visitors consider our To Go Tasting Flight. If/When Kenosha County reaches RED, we will return to only offering To Go Flights for our sampling option.
We monitor CDC data every few days, but an easy visualization that uses the same underlying data is:
We find this at least as frustrating as you do, but must again take action to protect ourselves, our crew, and to not host needless risk (even when others are willing to accept that risk.)
