We dropped in on a Saturday afternoon (around 1:00pm). The place had a handful of people (even a group of seniors) but luckily, there grounds are so spacious that you can wander around and sit at a few picnic tables/hammocks.

The taproom itself is dinky with only one table inside.

Of course, there’s all the awards they’ve won on display.

Cider tasting is $10.00 US/person which gets you 5 samples and you get to keep their cup. Not sure why they don’t just charge you $5.00 US as an option. Tasting fee is waived if you buy THREE bottles.

Their bottles range in the $15.00 US to $28.00 US and they also do grunt/growler refills.

There’s a small selection of merchandise.

Their grunt bottle ($6.00 US) was cool.

They also randomly had eggs for purchase ($7.00 US for a dozen).

Sparkling perry – méthode traditionelle
DSC03867Similar mouth feel to a champagne. Light in flavour.

Wild fermented
DSC03875The slightest hint of a sour note.

Heritage rosé
DSC03878This was our favourite from the ciders we tried. More full bodied and we detected a hint of berry.

Columbia crabapple
DSC03879Didn’t get much tartness from the crabapple.

Pommeau
DSC03880This was one of their sweeter ciders. Brandy note is prominent.

Come for the relaxing, chill grounds but DH’s ciders didn’t blow us away.
