Rabelasian Feast + Blue Christmas Release

Late Autumn is the time to celebrate "the merry triumphant encounter with the world in the act of eating and drinking, in which man partakes of the world instead of being devoured by it." (From Mikhail Bakhtin's "Rabelais and His World" [1940]).

Black Mountain Ciderworks & Meadery invites you to partake in our Rabelaisian Feast, which will feature an outdoor apple pressing, pulled pork and fixins, apple tasting, mulled apfelwein, wassail, gluhwein, non-alcoholic mulled juice, and fire pit with s’mores. The food and beverages will be ready at 2; we’ll do our outdoor pressing demonstration at 3; and we’ll start the fire around 5.  We’ll also be releasing this year’s batch of Blue Christmas, our blend of blueberry-cardamom mead and cider.  Join us for a day of celebratory eating, drinking, and merrymaking!  Admission is free and children/pets are welcome.

 P.S. On the day before (Nov. 17th, Black Friday), we will release this year’s Pomdemonium, a blend of cider and pomegranate-clove mead.
