We’ve had Scenic Road Cider before at Cider Fest but wanted to check out their headquarters. This was our fifth stop of the afternoon and it was delightful.
Follow the posted signs that’ll point you in the right direction.
More signs outside.
We dropped in on a Friday afternoon (around 3:00pm) and had the place all to ourselves. They’ve got a cute outdoor picnic area if you want to lounge around.
Otherwise, the tasting room is quaint and homey. Our host was fantastic; funny, quick witted and informative. Clearly loves his job and cider.
There was four ciders to taste (bonus: complimentary sampling).
Sadly, they were out of the Mama Beary (which comes out on Mother’s Day) and cidermaker’s selection. Future cidermaker flavours included cherry, winter spice and cranberry.
Bottles are in the $8.44 to $9.59 range. Appreciate that the prices already include taxes. 10% off if you buy a dozen bottles.
They had a pre-made four pack for $35.16.
Off dry that’s made from 100% pears. Light and enjoyable.
Not as dry as we expected. I actually liked this one more than the nearly dry.
This one didn’t leave much of an impression on me.
This was a surprise. Shocking burst of raspberry flavour. We bought a bottle ($9.00) for home.
Definitely worth a visit! We’ll be on the lookout for their speciality ciders.
