New cideries are popping up at a rapid pace these days, which makes cider drinkers extremely happy! Two that are on our radar include Original 13 Ciderworks in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia and Wild Hare Cider in Bluemont, Virginia.
Sip cider in a picturesque setting of a former mill in the Blue Ridge Mountains at Wild Hare Hard Cider, which offers plentiful cider produced from an orchard in the Shenandoah Valley. Some of the options include Rebelry (a unique cherry cider), Rocket (a sweet cider), Hopscotch (which recently brought home the bronze medal from the Great Lakes International Cider and Perry Competition) and many more! Wild Hare Cider can also be found in locations outside of the tasting room, which was opened in 2015; look for updates on Facebook. 33735 Snickersville Tpke., Bluemont, VA; (703) 216-8630
