Bold Rock Hard Cider

Bold Rock Hard Cider

Our cidery in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains is open daily for tours, tastings and hard cider to go. You are welcome to picnic with our ciders on the deck or down by the river.

Our tastings are for anyone 21 or over. We have sparkling sweet cider for others. Tastings feature 6 ciders on draft: 2 draft ciders are free of charge, with a small additional charge for a tasting flight of the other 4 draft ciders. At our service bar you can get Bold Rock by the glass or longneck bottle and order food from our menu of light appetizers. You are also welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy inside or out on our decks and terraces.

From cider history to modern production, you’ll see how tradition and technology come together in Bold Rock’s working cidery. See where we crush apples, ferment and bottle our hard ciders. We enjoy showing folks around our cidery and love talking about cider. There’s a good chance you’ll run into one of our friendly founders, John or Brian, so feel free to say hello. You’re also welcome to take a self-guided tour of our production facility and watch the bottling process or visit our Cider Museum for a tour of cider facts and artifacts.

In our shop you’ll find logo glassware and other Bold Rock wearable goods. Also available are six-packs, cases, and growlers of hard cider To Go. (They are for consumption off-site only.)
