If you’re a cider fan, you’re probably frustrated that there isn’t a cidery you can visit to geek out over your favorite alcoholic beverage. Beer drinkers have tons of breweries in town. Wine enthusiasts have wine country.
Good news: Two Rivers Cider Company understands your plight and, finally, is opening a tasting room. On Thursday, June 30 from 4 to 8 p.m., celebrate both the tasting room launch and the company’s 20th anniversary.
The space at 4311 Attawa Avenue, suite 103, is a similar size to the original Track 7 Brewing Co.’s location in Curtis Park—pre-expansion into the neighboring warehouse. At the party, Two Rivers will serve a few specialty ciders inside, plus its usual lineup in the more expansive outdoor area. Alex Haarmeyer, part of the Two Rivers production crew, said they’ll probably offer a cherry cider, a cider made with four apple varieties and, potentially, some barrel-aged ciders.
Haarmeyer said the Two Rivers team hasn’t decided what the tap room’s hours will be post-launch, but he guesses it’ll open around 4 p.m. at a maximum of four days per week.
