There’s something about fall and cider that goes so well together. Whether it’s the hot variety of the drink on a cloudy day, a cold cider with friends, or using the beverage to braise pork chops in the style of Normandy, cider fits the season.
St. Vrain Cidery is beginning their second year of operation this autumn. To celebrate, they are expanding. “We’re very excited to be adding an additional 12 taps, bringing our total line-up to 36,” said co-owner Cindy Landi. “We’ve had 24 delicious ciders on tap since we opened, and between our customers’ enthusiasm and the growth of the cider industry in Colorado, we just have to expand our offerings.”
The taproom features their own brews crafted by Dan Daugherty, as well as creations from other cider makers around the state. Small batch ciders include Bourbon Barrel Aged Dry Apple, Balaton Cherry, Poblano Chokeberry, Chocolate Chokeberry, Crabby Peach, Pink Guava Rose, and Dolgo and The Duchess (a blend of local crabapples and heirloom apples) making their debuts in the taproom leading up to the anniversary weekend.
St. Vrain Cidery will hold their anniversary celebration this weekend, from October 26th to 28th. Because the event coincides with Halloween, activities will include Halloween trivia, live music, contests, food trucks, and back by popular demand, Onesie Night.
