Have I mentioned yet that Longmont is growing like gangbusters? We have 9 breweries, sounds like a few new ones on the way, a thriving downtown, and now a cidery! In the 7 years since we have moved here, this is the year that Longmont seems to be growing into its own. There isn’t a night of the week that we aren’t getting an invite to listen to a band, try a new menu, or check out a beer release party!
Sure beer is nice and wine is great for a girl’s night out but what about when you want something different? Currently St. Vrain Cidery is offering some of the best options from across the state with some carefully curated taster flights for those of us new to cider! While I know I love cider, I really appreciate some guidance when it comes to the plethora of choices! I tried a hoppier flight that introduced me to some new to me flavors. The group also tried some on the swe
eter side as well as a seasonal pumpkin flavored cider (warning: not for everyone!)
And after talking to the team, it sounds like we will have some local Longmont ciders in early 2017. The shiny equipment is being installed and it is great to look at! It is so nice to know that there is place to take out of town guests who are tired of the beer tours and those of our friends who abstain from Gluten!
While it may be hard to convince my drinking companions that we should choose cider over beer, I am sold! The St. Vrain Cidery team has done a great job of renovating a languishing Longmont location and it sounds like they have some new neighbors very soon as well!
