I LOVE their cider, all of them, and I enjoy sitting on their large back deck looking down at the field and little stream area. It's one of my favorite stops when we visit the Nelson 151 area! It's a beautiful place... With yummy cider (not too sweet), good food and friendly service! Everyone is so kind and helpful. We'll be back for sure!
I’ve been to so many breweries so believe me when I say this was the best experience I’ve had yet. The staff was kind and helpful, and the scenery alone was amazing. There’s a little creek behind the brewery that we explored. We had an awesome time and will make it a point to come here when we travel this way again. 🍻
