Autumnal Celebration + Scarecrow Release

Join us in celebration of the fall and start of the harvest as we release Scarecrow, our fall cider made with masala chai tea (from Dobra Tea in Black Mountain) and honey. We will have Scarecrow-based food samples (apple butter, braised pork shoulder, etc), non-alcoholic juice for the kids, apples, and an outdoor pressing demonstration.  The food will be ready around 3:00 and the pressing demo will be around 4:00. There will also be a fire pit with s’mores later in the evening around 7:00. Attendance is free and children/pets are welcome. The fall is the most important time of year for a cidermaker, so please come share in our bounty!

More about Scarecrow:  This is a fall/winter cyser, made with apples, honey, a the masala chai tea blend from Dobra Tea in Black Mountain.  This is the same blend Dobra uses in their non-alcoholic "cider" they sell in the fall and winter, for which we provide the juice.  Scarecrow is a departure from many fall seasonal beverages that focus on pumpkin spices which can be overpowered by nutmeg or cinnamon.  The tea blend we use is more balanced and pairs naturally with cider and honey.  Scarecrow is a semi-sweet cyser and will be available not only in our tasting room, but in bars/restaurants in the Black Mountain and Asheville area.
