We’re Updating Our Hours – Finally

We’re shifting and extending our hours. We’ve talked about it for a long time, and now we’re finally doing it. Starting this Thursday 1/11, our hours will be as follows:

Thursday 5p – 9p
Friday      4p – 9p
Saturday 12p – 9p
Sunday    12p – 4p

Three Legged Tacos – Food Truck Friday – 1/12

In the new year, we’re going to have food trucks stop on by at least once a month. On January 12, we’ll be having Three Legged Tacos in the cidery from 6p – 9p.  Enjoy some cider and traditional Mexican tacos.

Three Legged Tacos is a food truck, catering and popup company with a commitment to supporting other local Chicago businesses and charitable causes.

They prepare traditionally-inspired Oaxacan and Yucatecan Mexican food. For the most part they put these regional dishes into taco form – a more accessible way to enjoy the richness of the flavors.

Three Legged Tacos has a firm commitment to supporting local purveyors, charities and non-profits, including organizations like the Greater Chicago Food Depository and Heartland Animal Shelter through the standing commitment of 3% of their profits.

Holiday Hours

We’re going to be open our normal business hours, so we’ll be open both Christmas Eve and New Years Eve. Come get some cider to share with family and friends or get some just for yourself! As a refresher, we’re open 3:30p to 7:30p on Thursday and Friday and 12p to 4p on Saturday and Sunday. Stay tuned for new hours in the new year.

Upcoming Ciders

Now that most of the apples have been harvested, we’re focusing on making new ciders. First of all, Bone Dry and Au Naturel will be back. Look for those to be on tap in the new year. Second, we’re working with an additional orchard this year – Tree-Mendus Fruit Farm in Eureka, Michigan. They have an exceptional variety of cider and heritage apples as well as pears. We’re working on a perry that we milled and pressed at the cidery a few weeks ago. Look for that to be available in January. We’re also fermenting a blend of cider apples including the famous Wickson crab. We also have yeast working on a single varietal cider which uses Arkansas Black apples. Now we just have to find space on tap!

We’re Now Open!

Stop by and check out our ciders made from apples organically farmed in Michigan.

We currently have six ciders on tap with more planned in the rotation. Most of our ciders are fermented to dryness but we have a crowd favorite semi-sweet cider – “Sellout”!
