Midsummer Merrymaking

  • Black Mountain Cider + Mead 104 Eastside Drive, Unit 307 Black Mountain, NC 28711 (map)

Celebrate the beginning of the summer with a day of cider, mead, and merrymaking!


Notus: cider with strawberry, rhubarb, and a hint of black of pepper

Basilisk: cider with homegrown basil with local cucumber

Sima: mead based on an old Finnish recipe with lemon and raisins

Black Sheep: melomel (fruit mead) with black currant and agave

Midsummer, despite its name, marks the beginning of the summer, a time of the longest days when nature has burst into life. We honor the sun and its life-giving energy--along with the life and light within each of us--with summery cider and mead releases, seasonal festivity, and an evening fire.

Cider and mead sangrias will also be flowing! We’ll light a fire pit in the evening, make s’mores, and reflect on the summer’s abundance.

A seasonal spread of cider and mead-based snacks will be available in exchange for donations to Friends2Ferals, with whom we work to care for the feral cat population at the Eastside Business Park. They’re raising money for a new van, so now’s the time to be generous!

Costumes are welcome, as are pets. Behaved children are allowed.
