At the National Beer Wholesalers Association meeting in September, Nielsen vice president Danny Brager delivered a simple message to attendees who stopped by his early morning breakout session: Cider is back. According to data from the firm, off-premise sales of hard cider were up 6 percent over the 52-week period ending on August 11. But if you look at the most recent 26-week period, also ending August 11, category-wide sales were up 13 percent.

The ‘Chapel of Apple’ as it is affectionately known is a beautifully rustic timber frame barn overlooking the Rockfish River that utilizes locally sourced apples crushed and crafted in the Blue Ridge Mountains to create our award winning cider. Our patio offers expansive views of the Rockfish Valley while the interior of the Cider Barn exudes comfort and hospitality. Join us for a pint, flight or bite - we also have cider to go and many a souvenir to take home with you.
