Double Your Barrels With Brandy Blue Bee Cider and Hardywood Bourbon Coffee This Saturday

There are some cool things coming out of barrels this Saturday February 1st.  You can try one or the other but there’s plenty of time to get them both in.

Blue Bee Rocky Ridge Release — Noon

From noon to 7PM, Blue Bee Cider debuts their sixth and final cider from their very first harvest in 2012.  Rocky Ridge Reserve was aged for five months in brandy barrels before packaging into hand numbered bottles.  There looks to be only 356 bottles available so get these while you can cider fans. 

So go out and get a taste then take a bottle or two home.  Olio’s food truck will offer an ala carte menu to pair with Blue Bee’s ciders. Music will be provided by the Cider Sippers throughout the afternoon with traditional Appalachian tunes.
