Ciders on Tap
RVA Cider- 5.5% ABV
Do you love everything RVA? This refreshing cider fermented beautifully, was cold crashed to hold its signature flavor, and then was slightly back sweetened with unfermented juice to let you fully experience the virginian apples. sit back, relax, and drink in the city!
45 and Trying- 6.0% ABV
Dry and refreshing, yet challenging… like getting those tanks upright. Instead of blending as planned we decided to celebrate this unique yeast strain and allowed it a long maturation process. Memories are sweet but cider doesn’t have to be.
Tart Cherry Cider- 6.5% ABV
Cherries lend this cider its signature blush color while complementing the apples to create one of the most bright and refreshing ciders you've ever had..
NitrO!- 5.6% ABV
WE ARE ONE OF THE FIRST CIDERIES IN THE NATION TO RELEASE A CIDER HYDROGENATED WITH NITROGEN INSTEAD OF CARBONATED WITH Co2. THE SMOOTH CREAMY TEXTURE MAKES THIS CIDER A MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE WHILE THE BEAUTIFUL HEAD LOCKS IN THE APPLE AROMATICS.
cITRA HOP CIDER- 6.8% ABV
WE REGULARLY ROTATE HOPPED CIDERS BUT WHEN WE USED CITRA HOPS THE CIDER WAS SUCH A HIT THAT WE BROUGHT IT BACK AS A PERMANENT LINE THAT IS NOW IN DISTRiBUTION. we are currently pouring an unfiltered cascade hop cider.
BELGIAN CANDI CIDER- 6.3% ABV
our new belgian candi cider was made with the belgian monastery ale yeast strain which produces fruity esters during fermentation, and was created with our buskey house blend of apples. this semi-sweet cider was then fermented with dark belgian candi, which contributed the cider's notes of dark fruit, molasses, and subtle caramel flavors.
we have several small batches being released exclusively to our cider club after being aged in 5 gallon barrels from our neighbor, RESERVOIR. We Have also released a series of collaborations of barrel aged ciders with virginia distillery company.
In addition to our traditional apple ciders we also have regular batches that we ferment and/or infuse with other fruits. Popular infusions so far have been the Black Currant, the Tart Cherry, and the cranberry basil. .
WE love to EXPERIMENT with fresh flavors. A randall is a canister full of fruit or other products that infuses the cider in-line on the way to your glass. So far we have randall'd Cherry-lime, jalapeno-lime, WATERMELON-rosemary, pineapple, grapefruit-lemongrass, and Mango-Mint.
